It seems every time we turn around there’s a new story about a data breach or a new strain of malware to content with. It’s hard to keep track of them all- and it’s even harder to keep your organization safe from these threats that keep popping up. So how can you outsmart hackers and viruses? We have a couple things for you to consider in order to effectively strategize against the criminals who want to steal your data.
First of all, you need to understand the techniques malware use and what tricks hackers use to infiltrate your environment. Let’s start with Malware. Malware is essentially hostile and intrusive software that often takes the form of executable code, scripts, active content, and other software. It’s often embedded in normal code so users can’t easily find and identify it. These can get into your computer when you download files, click on email links, and visit infected websites- so it’s critical to be aware of what your activities are while online. Once you understand how these attacks can get in and what form they take while in your network, you can educate your employees on the proper way to handle themselves online, as well as keep your IT folks up-to-date on the latest threats.
Second, you need to implement a total defense solution that protects your organization all the time. Traditional threat detection and threat defense strategies won’t cut it anymore- you need a strong solution that focuses on the entire lifecycle of cyber threats. Some threats and strains of malware even take a multi-stage attack pattern, and you need a solution that can handle each channel of these occurrences.
