Six Common Cybersecurity mistakes you can fix now…
Mistake #1 Doing Nothing “I’m not a target”
Cyber criminals are increasingly targeting High‐Profile Celebrities, Athletes, & High‐Net worth Individuals. Prepare an Incident Response plan/Mitigation Plan
Mistake #2 Insufficient expertise and tools
Relying on inadequate consumer grade unmanaged solutions. Partner with a specialized security provider that can expertly protect your Email, Network, and Personal Devices (endpoints). Educate
your family on security awareness.
Mistake #3 Unsecured personal devices
How many ways do you access your data Identity and access management (IAM) eliminates the complexity of multiple user credentials by giving you a single, secure identity to access all your network devices and apps. Multi‐factor authentication (MFA) offers another layer of protection, requiring a secondary authentication method such as a SMS message.
Mistake #4 Overlooking the security of cloud apps
Evaluate what cloud apps you are using (Box, Drobox, MS OneDrive, Office 365 G Suite) and take measures to protect your data. Use complex passwords, change them frequently, employ IAM and MFA as discussed in #3
Mistake #5 Not using a VPN
Applications, your financial accounts, et are running on the cloud and you’re accessing them from everywhere, home, office, coffee shop, mobile phone. This means you no longer control the network,
making malicious network threats far more common. A VPN enhances your anonymity, even from your ISP. Some VPN’s can even protect you from unknown malicious websites trying to download
malware to your device.
Mistake #6 Unsecured places of Importance
Your places of residence, office, airplane hanger, et can be a target. Misconfigured IoT devices like your RING Doorbell, TV’s, Home Automation Systems can easily be used to “jump” to your personal
devices for device compromise
