However, it’s not just tech giants who are at risk of having their business’ or their customers’ data accessed by outside entities; small and medium-size organizations across all industries can be at risk as well. Recently, such an example manifested at Georgia Tech University, where an unauthorized user of a university web application exposed information like names, birth dates, and social security numbers for up to 1.3 million people. The implications of these leaks can range from an outside actor simply viewing the data to find anything of use, to using the information they extract to discover perceived weaknesses at your firm, or even demanding a ransom for disposing of the data.

Top 5 Security Best Practices

Posted by Matthew Fall on Mar 12, 2019 9:39:00 AM

As humans, we are constantly weighing the odds of particular events happening, more specifically we identify the likelihood of negative events happening to us as lesser than them happening to someone else. This “that won’t happen to me” attitude is the main reason why we so often take a reactive approach to security. For example, your house gets broken into. From a reactive standpoint, you call the police, go out and buy a security camera, change the locks on your doors, etc. The proactive approach would suggest that you do all of this before the break-in occurs so that you've implemented the cameras, get that guard dog, and change the locks before an incident even occurs. For security issues that pertain to your business and its data, a reactive approach won’t cut it, and will often result in prolonged downtime and unexpected data loss. With security breaches on the rise, the important thing to realize is that it is no longer a matter of IF you will be affected, but when.
