Be Cyber Smart
As everyone’s lives have become increasingly dependent on technology, virtually all personal and business data is kept on internet-connected platforms, which can become a gold mine for bad actors. The first full week of the 18th annual Cybersecurity Awareness Month will highlight best security practices and focus on general cyber hygiene to keep user and business information safe.
Organizations can Be Cyber Smart by reinforcing basic cybersecurity best practices such as creating strong passwords, using multi-factor authentication, backing up company data, and updating software with the latest patches, according to National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), which co-lead Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
To kick off Cybersecurity Awareness Month, CRN spoke with 16 managed service providers with cloud-based security services expertise about the biggest cybersecurity challenges they and their clients face right now. From business continuity, ransomware response and supply chain attacks to user education, the rise in remote work, and finding and retaining security talent, here are the most vexing problems.
