In December 2020, The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency issued an urgent warning. American intelligence agencies believe that hackers had penetrated government systems.
One of the biggest challenges facing companies is guaranteeing information security for data, programs, and networks. Though you might practice thorough cybersecurity, it’s difficult to express your commitment without a regulatory body. That’s where FedRAMP can help your company stand out as a leader in security.
In 2020 alone, there have been over 1,000 cybersecurity attacks, and these cases alone have affected over 155 million individuals. Financially, cybersecurity attacks have caused damages valuing over $400 billion worldwide. However, cybersecurity is still not taken seriously by the general public.
The crippling gravity of cybercrime was clearly illustrated this year with the attack on the Colonial Pipeline which led to shortages in fuel supplies. More recently, a concerted attack by Malaysian hackers attempted to penetrate Israeli banking sites.
Endpoint security is one area of cybercrime prevention popular in cybersecurity design today.
Specifically, endpoint security is the means of making all endpoints that access any network secure. But what exactly is an endpoint?
Endpoint detection and response or EDR uses a central data repository to analyze endpoint vulnerabilities and respond to threats. It focuses on securing endpoints, and this protects all other network users.
Managing a cyber attack is good but preventing one from happening is even better. Here are the 10 key best practices for preventing cyber attacks.
