Articles about Ransomware and malware protection, data security and data leak prevention.
As we discussed in the previous post, G Suite administrators have to take security concerns very seriously, especially when it comes to keeping their organizational data secure. This involves two aspects: Data Loss prevention and Data Leak prevention. As we discussed previously, data loss can be the result of accidental deletion, such as when an employee may inadvertently delete files. However, even more alarming is data loss as the result of intentional means, such as targeted ransomware attacks.
Organizations today who already have a presence in the public cloud, or that look to have a public cloud presence in the near future, have to take security very seriously. Today’s modern businesses with digital resources have to be concerned with data security that exists not only on premise, but in the public cloud. G Suite administrators need to follow certain security best practices to ensure that the data and identity resources living in the public cloud are secure.
Organizations moving to the public cloud are faced with serious challenges to security and security related processes. Generally speaking, organizations maintaining on-premise infrastructure have total control over security and policies related to securing access to data, data loss prevention, and data security. When moving to the public cloud however, how can organizations provide this same, or even superior, level of data protection, data leak prevention, and data security?
Ransomware has arguably been the most commonly talked about topic in the security world regarding risks to organizations and their data. In the past few years, ransomware has made a name for itself with its destructive nature and high-profile headlines, with large numbers of organizations being affected in large scale ransomware infections, such as Petya and now Bad Rabbit and others.
In the world we live in today, technology dictates and is at the heart of many of our daily activities. With the Internet backing many of the technologies that we know and rely on today, including access to email, shared storage, and other public cloud resources, security is becoming more and more of a concern to everyone, from individuals to large enterprise organizations. More and more, confirmation of our identity is a precious possession that most of us hold dear. Having our identity fall into the wrong hands can wreak havoc on the livelihood of individuals, or even organizations.
In this article we will discuss phishing attacks and provide best practices on how companies can enhance security awareness and protection against phishing scams. Security concerns today are some of the most important and challenging problems that businesses have to face.
A crucial part of cloud security involves managing user identities, their permissions, and resources they have access to. This can be an extremely challenging task for organizations who may have users accessing public cloud resources from a number of different devices and networks. Additionally, organizations may be utilizing multiple clouds and managing access across all of those public clouds. Most public cloud vendors today provide cloud Identity and Access Management (IAM) frameworks to help facilitate and secure users’ identities and access to resources.
Today, organizations are placing more data as well as infrastructure in the public cloud. Public cloud has made it possible for organizations to be much more efficient, agile, and to integrate new technologies much more quickly. However, with all the benefits that public cloud brings to the table in regard to features and functionality, there are concerns when we think about the security of public cloud data and the accessibility of public cloud data when it exists in someone else’s data center.
In today’s world of hybrid cloud infrastructures using both on-premise resources as well as public cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), the security boundary lines are being blurred for organizations taking advantage of public cloud resources. While hosting infrastructure both on-premise and in the public cloud, organizations have to address cyber security concerns as well as enforce compliance of on-premise network security policies with infrastructure that lives in the cloud.
In this article we will learn how to address and effectively respond to major enterprise cybersecurity threats. Today, cyber security incidents lead to significant damage, alarming organizations of all types and sizes in different geographic locations. In 2017 the following primary sectors, increasingly turning to cloud, file-sharing services, and big data technology, top the list of the most high-target industry verticals vulnerable to cyber-attacks:
