If the USB port is the front door to your data networks, then the unassuming USB flash drive is the lock, key, and knob all in one. The cybsersecurity paradox created by the unassuming USB flash drive is one we all should be aware of.
With the ease of data transportability provided by a USB flash drive comes the ease with which a data breach can occur. Are you at risk?
Zero Trust Security is more important than ever, as the number of cyber attacks has exploded since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
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.
