As security threats constantly evolve, Information Security professionals may feel attackers are outpacing efforts to stop them. The most important defence is knowledge. By gaining perspective, insight and understanding of the threats, organisations can take crucial steps to mitigate them.
2021 reiterated an important lesson: Expect 0-day attacks that pose a risk you can’t ignore. We had Hafnium, Pulse Secure, VMware Cloud and Print Nightmare that took a lot of operational time to address.
Then just as we thought things were looking good to wrap up for the festive break and roll smoothly into 2022, Log4j hit!
It is no surprise then when we look at Saepio, the most common concern for most of our customers is Ransomware.
The National Cyber Security Centre’s (NCSC) Cyber Assessment Framework (CAF) cites backup as a critical element to protect against cyber-attacks as well as minimise the impact of an incident with an appropriate response and recovery strategy.
At a recent event with our partners, Mimecast, we touched on the criticality of messaging security in 2022.
It’s almost impossible not to sound like a broken record when for another year, phishing attacks and email compromises broke records.
We’ve all had those jarring authentication experiences as customers. A web page not letting us log in properly or timing out. MFA prompt not coming through in time. Self-password reset? Reset emails never arrive. Unfortunately, they’re not rare.
With a drive and focus on the importance of identity and access management within our organisations, something we’ve seen a sharp uptake of interest in is how to get the most out of customer identity. What do we mean by that?
It’s been a busy weekend for attackers and defenders alike – security researchers have already detected a wealth of malicious activities where the bad guys have been exploiting arguably the biggest vulnerability of 2021. This has been commonly referred to at the Log4j vulnerability.
It feels like we have stepped back in time to 2014 when the internet last broke thanks to the poodle and heartbleed vulnerabilities!
