5 Things You Can Do Now to Prevent Cyber Attacks and Data Breach Damage

“It’s our friends and family–our moms and dads–who shop online and are affected when a bad guy gains access. So we take it personally,” said SecurityMetrics SOC/SIEM Director, Heff. 

Host and Principal Security Analyst Jen Stone (MCIS, CISSP, CISA, QSA) continues this sentiment by saying “When businesses go down, people suffer. Every business we can protect helps elevate the quality of life for the people who are associated.”

At SecurityMetrics, we monitor the threat landscape around the clock. And currently, that landscape is not only vast, it’s complex. Never have companies faced so many challenges, and hackers know it. Data protection measures need to be based on our new global landscape and the latest threats. Today, Heff, Jen, and SOC Analyst Forrest Barth discuss the threat landscape in depth and cover the five most important things you can do now to prevent an attack. Listen to this episode to learn:

  • What the “Fujiwhara Effect” is and why it can make cybersecurity feel overwhelming.

  • New terms and trends demystified: cyber empathy, vishing, endpoint definition, and Zero Trust architecture.

  • Why bringing work computers home and social engineering make for a disastrous combination.
