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.
How much have you heard about the latest industry acronym ‘SASE’ (pronounced Sassy – *cringe*)? It’s actually a pretty important one. Secure Access Service Edge is a concept coined by Gartner as the ‘The Future of Network Security’.
It’s stating security must evolve in order to embrace the benefits of cloud and remote working. Identity is the new perimeter, shifting focus from the traditional network perimeter.
It’s fair to say that H1 2020 has been a bit of a rollercoaster. As we’ve explored in previous blogs, quite a lot has changed due to the pandemic we’re currently going through. A key question we’ve had at Saepio throughout is; what have the operational security consequences been?
I’m sure no one will dispute the world has changed and so has the way we work and collaborate. Covid has presented challenges for most companies and firms as we adapted to a largely remote workforce, without the comforts and security we have relied on.
It’s inevitable the recent effort put in by most organisations to enable widespread remote working will satisfy more than a tactical response to the COVID-19 lockdown. We expect remote working to become a new normal, so it’s wise to get your set up robust and secure.
Saepio have long promoted the importance of security awareness and training your staff to recognise the ways in which cybercriminals will target them. Unfortunately, the bad guys have wasted no time in exploiting our fears around Coronavirus and we’ve seen an unprecedented increase in opportunistic criminal activity on the internet.
As many of us make the move to working from home to socially distance and protect our frontline services, we also want to help keep you keep safe from a cyber perspective during these strange times.
