5 quick cyber security wins for your business

Cyber security is a headache.

I know this for a fact. Because every day my team and I have to learn something new, and /or rescue a business round here that’s got it wrong.

(don’t feel sorry for us. Secretly, we love every minute of it)

Our daily headache is also a headache for you. Because as the owner or manager of the business, it’s ultimately your responsibility to make sure you and your team are protected from what is officially now the US’s number one threat to businesses. The good news is that there are a few things you can do to keep your data safe.

These are our 5 quick cyber security wins:

  1. Change your passwords, ideally using a random password generator. And have a different password for each service and application
  2. Use a password manager to make number one blissfully easy for all of your staff
  3. Systematically delete all unused accounts. And remove users as they leave the business
  4. Check your software licenses to ensure they’re up to date. Out of date software is dramatically more likely to be a security weak point
  5. Organize staff cyber security awareness training. The more aware they are of how it only takes one click; the less likely they are to be the one who screws up

Dark Cubed:

Dark Cubed focuses on real-time monitoring, threat intelligence, predictive analytics, elegant dashboard, streamlined workflow, executive reporting and active blocking. This is another layer of security that integrates with the firewall.

ThreatLocker:

ThreatLocker is a zero-trust endpoint security tool giving companies control over what software can run, by whom, and what data can be accessed.

It keeps a full detailed audit of what applications are used and data accessed/transferred/deleted and by what users (signature tracking, etc.) If something unusual happens, such as a signature change, or a user opens an application that is out of their normal routine the administrator is alerted. This is a crucial tool in identifying malware threats, as well as helping organizations identify if users are accessing applications and/or data/ files they should not be.

ThreatLocker provides a solution that allows businesses to control the content that runs on their network. Unlike AntiVirus software ThreatLocker is not looking for known viruses or malware. ThreatLocker uses a complex set of rules to determine what can be executed on a network and stops anything that has not been approved before it can even execute.

Huntress:

Huntress is a supplement to SentinelOne. Hackers are becoming more sophisticated, and Huntress actively seeks out these threat actors with a "defend forward" mentality. This software combines both advanced security tools along with human intervention to ensure even the most advanced hackers can't penetrate your network.

SentinelOne:

SentinelOne is a comprehensive enterprise security platform that provides threat detection, hunting, and response features that enable organizations to discover vulnerabilities and protect IT operations. SentinelOne integrates static artificial intelligence (AI) to provide real-time endpoint protection and reduce false positives that derail investigations or make threat detection a capital-intensive process. This will replace Webroot in your current environment.
