According to a recent cybersecurity study, "70% of successful breaches originate on the endpoint.” That risk is now escalating.
The global pandemic, it turns out, is not just one of human health; cyber health is also at stake, as the number of cyberattacks has exploded since February.
In this new work-from-home era created by a global pandemic, the cybersecurity dangers associated with portable media are growing exponentially.
The focus on external cyber attacks has caused us to overlook – and prevent – potential insider threats created by employees, contractors, and other associates.
Data breaches related to USB drives and other peripheral devices are on the rise. In fact, insider threats are one of the leading cause of data breaches.
If nearly half of all data breaches are physical breaches, not cloud-based breaches, then doesn’t it make sense to include physical security in any cyber hygiene policy? Of course it does.
We wonder why there is so much being spent in an attempt to stop remote hackers, yet we still leave our ubiquitous computer and network ports wide open.
A comprehensive report of cybersecurity threats entitled, “The Human Factor,” asserted that “people-centered threats define the landscape.”
Corporate executives’ approach to cybersecurity is like forgetting about Newtonian physics when we began to learn about the quantum field or focusing on a proliferation of string theories while forgetting that apples fall down.
Are we doing enough to protect our ubiquitous open ports, especially when the cost of protecting these ports is so inexpensive?
