“At a time when we are seeing a huge increase in phishing attempts and ransomware attacks, it’s becoming harder and harder for small businesses to attract and retain high quality IT staff.”

In the industries we service, insurance companies are now being much stricter in granting cybersecurity insurance, which is driving change, and raising the skill set bar for internal IT staff.

DCG's FIrst step for ZERO-Trust initiative

MFA IS THE WAY

In light of the recent high-risk security threats, DCG is reaching out to our clients to review two-factor authentication (2FA – this is also known as multifactor authentication) options for your organization. This is the first step in DCG’s ZERO-Trust initiative. 2FA is an extra step added to the log-in process of applications, such as a code from your phone or a fingerprint scan, that helps verify your identity and prevents cyber-criminals from accessing your accounts. Accoding to a recent article, password which contains Numbers, Lowercase and Uppercase letters with a symbol and 8 character long is tough to crack and it may take approax 8hrs or less. 2FA is the best way to protect your accounts from unauthorized access and it should be applied to Mail, Server Logins, VPN connection login, Remote access and 3rd party webapps.

What is Encryption?

An algorithm is used to change plain text into what is known as cipher text, which scrambles regular text into unreadable data.

What is Firewall?

Based on pre-designated security guidelines, this is a computer system’s first barrier to cyber threats, blocking unauthorized access to the system while still allowing outward communication.

What is Malware?

Term used to describe all kinds of malicious software, including ransomware, adware, spyware, scareware, trojan horses, computer viruses, and worms.

What is NIST ?

What is Patch?

What is Phishing?

Scammers often send “phishing” emails that appear to be from reputable sources with the intention of obtaining personal data such as passwords, social security or credit card numbers.

What is Ransomware?

Malicious software, spread through attachments, infected websites, etc., that literally holds your computer hostage, blocking your access to the system, until a certain amount of money is paid to unlock it.

What is Acceptable Risk?

We think it is important for our clients to know that in the current cyber world there will always contain a certain level of risk. However, your risk level will be lowered considerably with the right managed security services provider. Together you can establish what is both a fair amount of risk and what is needed to keep their risk as low as possible. Clients must have the understanding that attacks typically happen multiple times per day, and basic security is very effective at preventing these attacks. In the instance when an attack does get through security, discuss with your client how their business is equipped to handle it.

Businesses Should Outsource Security To Their
IaaS Provider

We can be sure that the concerted efforts of cybercriminals are going to be directed at breaking into AWS, Azure, GCP and IBM Cloud – the so-called ‘Big Four’ of the public cloud space. Businesses with unpatched operating systems, shadow IT, weak AIM processes and poor firewall configurations are going to be the low hanging fruit.
