Are you Secure — Depends on Many Things
If a business owner asks a cybersecurity specialist if they are secure, it will be tough for them to give them a straight and honest answer without delving into their systems and business operations. Most companies spending lots of money on security hardware that manufacturers are telling them will “make them secure.” But what many don’t do is cover the basics of best practices that include being keeping their operating systems up-to-date, patching current known vulnerabilities, using long and secure passwords, and practicing the principle of least privilege. There are lots of other things to do, but without covering the basics, it is a waste of resources. The business attack landscape is vast and open, with new threats developed continually. Businesses today need to figure out what assets they have that need to be protected from compromise and where they think they are most vulnerable.
