Vulnerability scanning uses software to scan for vulnerabilities in a computer and networks. Many applications have critical security flaws in them which can leave your entire network at risk. Before, they were addressed by security patches, recent vulnerabilities in Zoom have allowed hackers to remotely control user’s PCs and flaws in Adobe Reader’s code allowed malicious code to be executed on Windows user’s machines.
Network security involves adopting preventative actions to secure your network and its underlying infrastructure against the infiltration of ransomware and malware, the exfiltration of sensitive data, or potential damage to your ability to continue operating. When your network isn’t secure, your data and your customers’ data are at risk of being breached. This can have financial, reputational, and regulatory consequences.
More and more businesses are shifting to a full- or part-time home working. At the same time ransomware attacks, phishing attempts, data breaches, and dark web leaks are becoming more prevalent. That’s why it is more important than ever to have full visibility and control over what company data is being accessed, by who, and where from.
At Carden IT Services, we have recently added to our ever-growing collection of accreditations by becoming ISO 27001 compliant.
Unlike our previously gained ISO 9001 accreditation which focused primarily on quality and consistency of service, ISO 27001 focuses on information security.
The dark web – the place where cyber-criminals conduct their business anonymously. Some parts of the dark web hold the results of the data breaches of many of the websites that you used or even still use today. This data can be names, date of births, addresses, booking information, and worst of all (but not unlikely) credit card information and passwords.
Conducting a regular dark web scan is recommended. If you have conducted a scan and found that your email addresses and passwords are available on the dark web, you need to act immediately. Here are our recommendations on how to proceed from here.
