SIW on Top Five Security Concerns Organizations Need to Address
Hikvision Tips to Prevent Credential Stuffing
The SecurityInfoWatch.com (SIW) article, “The Top 5 Cybersecurity Threats Plaguing Enterprises,” outlines five security concerns organizations should prepare for in 2019, including malware which is more costly now than security breach.
From the article: “In a perfect world, all organizations, no matter the size or industry, would be backed by integrated technologies and machine-learning enabled analytics with teams at the ready to defend their systems, data and employees. But unfortunately, that level of security usually is not financially or logistically feasible. Although cyberattacks may seem like a distant threat on a day-to-day basis, there are a handful of attacks on the rise that every future-oriented leader should be including in their security strategy.”
Security threats outlined in the article include:
- Ransomware is a type of malware that is expected to cost $11.5 billion this year, and has become more expensive than data security breaches.
- The growth of the cloud, SaaS (software as a service), and bring-your-own-device means the growth of attack vectors for hackers to pick from. Securing access for off-premise resources is an important consideration for organizations today.
- Phishing, the number one attack vector for hackers, is growing in sophistication. Increased use of services such as Dropbox and Salesforce has led to hackers “improving their impersonation skills with more sophisticated attack types ranging from credential stuffing to advanced social engineering methodologies.”
