Selecting a Managed Detection and Response Service

By Derek Marin | Mar 12, 2020 8:45:00 AM

In the era of digital transformation, many organizations find it a never-ending struggle to defend against rampant cybercrime. Preventative security is no match for today’s threat actors, yet the advanced cybersecurity capabilities that organizations need are beyond the level of maturity that small-to-midsize enterprises (SMEs) possess.

At the same time, the expanding attack surface makes the IT environment increasingly vulnerable. Identifying and managing vulnerabilities has become exponentially more complex with more devices joining the corporate network, a mobile workforce connecting to the network from anywhere, and applications moving to the cloud.

Given the limited in-house resources, the cybersecurity skills gap, and the rapidly growing number and sophistication of threats, it doesn’t surprise anyone that security teams can’t keep up.

In this kind of reality, a data breach or network outage is all but inevitable. And the result is not only loss of productivity and revenue but also potential liability, regulatory noncompliance, and reputational damage. The ripple effects of these consequences can last for years.

By Derek Marin | Feb 19, 2020 7:28:00 AM

While alternate forms of communication such as Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Slack, and other options, grow in popularity, email remains and will not disappear  for any organization, and cybercriminals know this. In fact, most cyber-attacks start over email—a user is tricked into opening a malicious attachment, or into clicking a malicious link and divulging credentials.

Four Pillars of Building a Cybersecurity Culture

By Derek Marin | Feb 5, 2020 8:15:00 AM

If someone asked you, “what’s it like to work at [your company]?”, what would you reply? I suppose it depends on your role, how long you’ve worked there and the impression you want to relay, but it’s safe to assume that some aspect of your answer would include elements of culture.

“Culture” can seem like a fuzzy concept, but it’s definition does help pin to unpack it.

“Culture is the total way of life of particular groups of people. It includes everything that a group of people thinks, says, does and makes — its systems, attitudes and feelings. Culture is learned and transmitted from generation to generation.”
