A cyber defense has a relatively short lifespan. Many measures you’ve used to defend your system last year may be obsolete by 2021. New threats such as crypto-mining and filesless attacks are on the rise.
Whether you are a national company with major IT efforts or a small business looking to beef up your security, give Kobargo a call to see how we can help.
A Little Hacking History
Cyberattacks are not a new phenomenon, hackers have been looking to crack your defenses since the turn of the century at least. One of the most notorious hackers, Kevin Mitnick, hacked the Digital Equipment Corporation’s (DEC) network and made copies of their software in 1989. Prior to that in 1982 he hacked the North American Defense Command (NORAD) inspiring the 1983 film War Games.
So how can you avoid becoming a casualty of the next cybersecurity attack? It begins admitting that you are vulnerable. Kobargo looks for gaps in visibility and coverage. Companies are using remote employees and branch offices more and more and these situations increase vulnerability to external threats.
Here are some ways to help you build better defenses with Kobargo on your side.
Enforce A Better Cyber Defense Security Policy
No matter what size of your company or what level your employees are, everyone needs to understand the security standards and protocols. If an employee mistakenly clicks on a link in the wrong email may lead to loss that could cripple your company financially.
In addition to refreshing your protocols, perform routine checks with your employees to test their knowledge. Testing these security standards will keep your employees and company safe, locking your security down and protecting you against embarrassing revelations that your company may never recover from.
Get Your Employees On Board
At the end of the day the security and your company are only as strong as your weakest link. Therefore, it is important to have all of your employees practice a safe data regimen. Check URLs, security certificates, or any situation that requires credentials or other sensitive information.
Partnering with a skilled, industry-leading IT firm like Kobargo can help clean up messes left behind after employees or untrained techs teams don’t deal with the after-effects of malware, ransomware, and phishing attacks.

Cybersecurity For Remote Workers
With more companies sending their workers home to sign in remotely, and important discussion is needed in cybersecurity. Whether your company has extensive remote working initiatives during a pandemic or not, there are things that you can do to keep your employees and your company’s data safe.
Whether your employees are using company issued laptops or using their own personal devices, endpoint security is essential. Having the right security base at the endpoint is necessary so hackers don't compromise company data.
Monitoring is also important and includes how users interact with an application. Other variables include interaction from what network, from what device, or during what time of day. Implementation of a Zero Trust model is key and relies on consistent monitoring to ensure that risky behavior is being dealt with through actionable steps.
