Some of you may be aware that Pendello Solutions recently moved offices. With the new space, we took the opportunity to try out some new technologies. A few of these cool new devices will be our blog focus for September. One of these devices in our office, the Intel Compute Stick, is an accurate representation of how far technology has come. The Intel Compute Stick is a computer that is the same size as an Altoids box. (See image below)
We have spent the past few weeks focusing on security awareness training. We touched on what it is and why it is crucial. Now comes the step for action. For you and your employees to be the strongest first line of defense, you must make time for security awareness training. For as we have reiterated over and over, 95% of breaches are the cause of employee error. So the training is obviously necessary, so now time is the only barrier.
Last week’s blog, we discussed Security Awareness training. We delved into what it is and what precisely we offer at Pendello Solutions. Our goal this week is to give you some significant numbers to paint a vivid picture of why Security Awareness training is so necessary. In this day and age, Security Awareness training is something that can keep your hard-earned business as safe as possible from the devastating effects of a security breach.
Cybercriminals are continually updating their methods and tactics to sabotage people effectively and unfortunately, technology alone most likely will not keep you safe. Employee error is the cause of 95% of security breaches. Without proper training, your employees are the weakest link to your business’s security defense. How do you make sure that your business hasn’t already been compromised and that your employees are your most reliable link of defense? This is the point where security awareness training comes in to play. Pendello Solutions offers Security Awareness Training alongside Dark Web Assessments to put your business and your employees in an empowering, proactive state.
If you have been following our blogs this month, you hopefully have a better understanding of what the Dark Web is and how easily your credentials can end up there. With over 80,000+ compromised emails a day, other than education, there is no guaranteed way to prevent a security breach. Since a breach of data is somewhat inevitable, here is what we at Pendello Solutions are doing to minimize the damages which can be caused by a security breach.
You may trust that because you personally aren’t accessing the Dark Web that you don’t have anything to worry about. But, did you know that in Q1 of this year, in the financial sector alone, leaked credentials were up 129%? What does this mean, and how do these leaks happen?
We hear a lot about the Dark Web and although many of us shudder at the topic, few honestly know what the Dark Web actually is. The Dark Web is not a location but instead a way of searching the internet with anonymity. To fully understand what this means, we need to look at how the surface web works in comparison to the Dark Web.
