CIS control 2 speaks to basic cybersecurity hygiene, only it is software and applications specific. Often, attackers will look for unpatched or unsupported software to target, regardless of the system it is running on, or the type of business using it.
If you work in the field of Information Technology, you have probably heard of Vulnerability Assessment (VA). VA is a process of identifying security vulnerabilities in a system. It is recommended that you conduct a VA against your organization's network every quarter, and if your organization follows certain policy and standards, such as PCI DSS, VA is a requirement. However, organizations should not be the only ones conducting VAs against their network; average home users should also conduct vulnerability assessment against their network. In this blog, I will guide you through the process of performing a VA against your network using Nessus Home.
It’s no question that in cybersecurity, defense is the best defense. In the constantly changing threat landscape, the tie often goes to the attacker, and businesses are forced to act like turtles putting up shells of security to ward off threats.
If you are anything like myself and my co-workers at Alpine Security, you’re obsessed with Cybersecurity and the impact of poor implementations. If you’re not like us, good for you! But there are still some things you ought to be aware of to help you protect your data, especially when traveling.
