Cybersecurity 101 – From the Office Desk to Dining Room

Cybersecurity issues are becoming a day-to-day struggle for businesses and continue to be a growing priority for organizations of all sizes, across all industries. It’s important to look at cybersecurity from an individual and organizational level. And the first step is making sure you’re well informed and protected.

Transform yourself from a cybercrime target to an active defender. It’s not just the workplace you need to worry about – your personal passwords, smartphone, email, apps etc. are all a part of cybersecurity.

“There are around 24,000 malicious mobile apps blocked every day.” (Symantec)

“63% of data breaches exploit static passwords, specifically “weak, default or stolen passwords.”   (2016 Verizon Data Passwords Breach Investigations Report)

Cloud Security And Productivity: Finally, There’s a Balance

For years, IT had a choice: you could either be secure or productive, but you couldn’t be both. Today, you can protect your business without sacrificing user experience.


Top 5 Tips for Reducing Vulnerabilities & Staying Safe in 2018

This year has been the most expensive to date in terms of cyber breaches and their impact. According to Gemalto, the first six months of 2017 saw nearly 2 billion records lost or stolen in cyber breaches—a 164% increase from the last six months of 2016. With the average data breach in the U.S. costing $7.35 million (IBM).

Strengthen Cloud App Security with Multi-Factor Authentication

It’s a fact: Many cloud applications rely primarily on a username/password combination for secure access. That may be music to a hacker’s ears, but it’s not what IT security teams want to hear.

Are you Gambling on IT Security?

The average mean time to detect an incident in an organization is OVER 140 DAYS!

Whenever an attack succeeds, your game is impacted by more than the financial and operational loss. Reputation loss is bigger, and the damage is arguably even more wide-spread, in an intensely competitive industry with hundreds of other options for a player to choose to spend their money on. For example, when it was revealed that Steam Stealer malware was compromising 77,000 accounts a month, more than 20,000 players turned and walked away, and the loss of in-game revenue was massive. (Source)


Did you know that between 70% and 80% of the top-10 malware you detect could be avoided if your technology was updated correctly?

  • Using outdated, older versions of core software components and services (Microsoft Office/ Windows, Windows server, SQL and Exchange)
  • Using outdated hardware as it relates to BIOS and firmware revisions on servers, networking gear, firewalls etc.
  • “Log Fatigue” or the non-active monitoring of systems, particularly security systems & security logs
