“2022 is going to be another banner year for Team Ransomware”
Cybernews.com | Interview featuring Jeff Finn and Brad Rhodes
Cybernews.com has just published an interview in which Jeff Finn, CEO of zvelo, and Brad Rhodes, Head of Cybersecurity, discuss what the current cybersecurity landscape looks like, sharing insights about the role of zvelo’s AI-based threat detection technologies in helping tackle cybercrime.
Among the questions posed during the interview, cybernews asked the following:
“What cybersecurity measures do you think should be a must for companies nowadays?”
Three things are an absolute must today.
The first is multi-factor authentication with no exceptions. There are recent examples of organizations giving administrators easy remote access, only for those accounts to be exploited by MCAs. Make it harder for MCAs to gain access to your systems!
The next is to integrate CTI and tailor it to your organization. Not having CTI today is like not having access to your favorite news outlet. You just do not know what is going on without it. Additionally, CTI can feed other systems such as Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) capabilities, firewalls, and so on, to help detect and prevent cyberattacks as well as reduce alert fatigue.
Finally, invest in robust cybersecurity training for your organization. Your employees should be your first line of defense in cybersecurity. They are the ones who will receive that phishing email. The fate of your organization could come down to an employee taking the bait and clicking a link or picking up the phone to talk to your cyber defenders.
To learn more about the CTI process and how to begin leveraging CTI in your own organizations, please check out the following links to a 3 part blog series and video presentation:
