It’s no secret that 2015 was another challenging year in cyber security. While fallout continued from the Sony hack, new threats emerged and each one offered a lesson for the future. Here’s what can be learned from the past year as you plan for 2016.
1. Keep Backups
While antivirus and other security software has since learned how to combat much of that ransomware, it’s still possible to be infected by the newest versions. Fortunately, combining vigilant use of compliance software with automatic data backups provides the best solution, since a threat to delete the data on your hard drive is neutered when that data is already backed up elsewhere.
2. Manage Your Privileged Users Effectively
Accordingly, it’s important to have effective policies in place to reduce your risk, such as logging privileged user activities and limiting log-in durations along with the privileges given to each account.
3. Don’t Underestimate the Need for Security in ALL Networked Devices
4. The Need for Visibility Is at an All-Time High
5. Security Problems Aren't Going Away Anytime Soon
