Now is the time to implement multi-factor authentication

Cyber attacks are not slowing down. And with more and more people accessing company networks remotely, the problem is only getting worse. All it takes is one compromised credential or legacy application to cause a data breach. Now is the time to step up your security.

Risk Levels of Various Remote Access Methods

The pandemic has forced many of us to implement work from home procedures. But what are the risks associated with permitting network access from outside of the secure perimeter of your company's internal network? To keep your business safe, make sure you have at least the minimum security measures in place.

Keeping your nonprofit safe from cyber attack in the year of Covid

As if 2020 wasn’t hard enough, now cyberattack records are being shattered nationwide. Covid has given cybercriminals an endless buffet of cyber-based ammo and unfortunately, nonprofits are low hanging fruit.

Because many nonprofits simply do not have the time or financial resources to keep up-to-date with the latest cybersecurity advice, the cyber criminals often see them as easy targets.

The fearless vampire hunter heroes knew this, but somehow there was always someone in the house that defeated security by extending the invitation.

Social Distancing for Your Network

For years, examiners have pressed banks to incorporate pandemics in their GLBA risk assessment and provide appropriate planning to address a possible pandemic. Until this year, that risk seemed remote. It was difficult to imagine just how strongly a pandemic could affect not only the bank, but the entire community, region, nation, and world.

Don’t forget about security while working from home

A short while ago, we discussed preparing and testing a Remote Work Plan as COVID-19 was becoming more prevalent. The time for planning is now past and most businesses that can support home workers should already have that plan in operation.

Probably the most important aspect of working from home is making sure that the home workstation is safe, secure and pre-configured to work in the event of an emergency.

Cyber attacks are evolving. Make sure your technology does too. By Tim Coach, RESULTS COO

In 2020, it will be more important than ever to keep up with what’s affecting technology and the small business. Most cyber attacks occur because of weak, outdated technology that can’t keep up with the latest ransomware, virus, malware or phishing scheme.
