Stop Blaming China & Russia for All Your Cyber Attacks

Despite dramatic media coverage, most breaches in cyber security are not caused by nation-state attacks carried out by sophisticated hackers.

Authored by Amar Singh, CEO of the Cyber Management Alliance, this white paper helps to debunk some of the myths and misconceptions surrounding why most cyberattacks succeed. Plus, it offers recommendations on what companies can do to deny and disrupt threats from outside attackers and malicious insiders.

Employee Social Network Password Practices a Major Workplace Risk

Millions of employees using social media accounts represent a major workplace risk if/when those accounts are compromised. Once hacked, a social network account can easily provide access to information that gives hackers access to other facets of users’ lives, such as their work computers and email accounts.

To make matters worse, large social networks don’t remind or make clear to users the risks associated with weak passwords, or never changing their passwords. In fact, new social network platforms allow for a single logon that is linked to multiple social media accounts so that users can avoid having to remember multiple passwords for multiple accounts.
