The 4 Keys to a Strong Defense Against Cyber Attacks

As Technology continues to advance so does the need for heightened awareness.  Everyone can play a part in keeping their own data as well as their organization’s data safe.

What Is Cyber Security Awareness Month? Cyber Security Awareness Month is held every October. It promotes Cyber Security awareness and empowers individuals and organizations by giving them knowledge and resources to defend against Cyber threats.

What are the 4 Keys to a Strong Defense Against Cyber Attacks?

  1. Enabling Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
    Implementing Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) adds a vital layer of security to all logins. In most cases, a hacker can’t breach an account protected by MFA, even if they have the password.
  2. Strong Passwords & Password Manager
    Passwords remain a critical aspect of securing online accounts. You should always use strong, unique passwords for each account and avoid easily guessable information. Password Managers are a great and safe way to manage multiple passwords across different accounts.
  3. Updating Software
    Outdated software creates vulnerabilities that Cybercriminals can exploit. Regularly update operating systems, applications, and firmware. This ensures the latest security patches are in place. Making updates automated is always a good way to ensure they’re done promptly.
  4. Recognizing and Reporting Phishing
    Phishing attacks are a common type of Cyber-attack, so it’s important you and your team can identify phishing emails, suspicious links, and unsolicited attachments. You must always verify the sender’s email address and never provide sensitive information unless certain of the recipient’s authenticity.
