      We Dig Into the Hacker’s Playbook for Some Solid Security Lessons

      Keep in mind what these hacking tales are created to do: entertain. While life is often stranger than fiction, in the case of hackers, this certainly isn’t so. Security company SafeBreach issued the second edition of their Hacker’s Playbook, which guides the reader through the company’s experiences as they simulated particular methods of data breaches. The methods which succeeded were picked apart to understand how the hacker made their way into the network, how they moved around without getting caught, and how they made off with the data.

      The results of such an experiment might shock you. Most successful attacks were operated by those who have been around for quite some time. Including executable files in email attachments was a favorite (and effective) tactic in a quarter of all attempts, while malware distribution, rootkits, and .zip files were also highly efficient. The results concluded that it’s not huge vulnerabilities that bring about catastrophe, as you might see on the big screen. Rather, it’s simple issues that are often discreet and rely on user error.

      Your security measures may not be up to snuff to protect your systems from this type of threat. In fact, the solutions that you rely on to keep your infrastrastructure safe from malware may be configured incorrectly, leaving you wide open to attacks.

      What this means for businesses is that it’s practically guaranteed that, at some point, you can expect to be hacked. When this time comes, you want to make sure that you have both preventative measures to limit the damage done, and reactive solutions that can quickly detect and eliminate threats. Furthermore, it’s of the utmost importance that you educate your employees on cybersecurity best practices, and that you keep your systems as up-to-date and functional as possible.

      Symmetric Engineering Group can help your business reach these lofty goals. With our comprehensive security solutions, you’ll find yourself losing less sleep over your network’s security. To learn more, reach out to us at (813) 749-0895.

      Tip of the Week: Shop Safe While Online With These 3 Common-Sense Tactics

      Stick to What You Know
      When making an online transaction, well-known websites can safely be considered to be more secure than the smaller, never-heard-of-it sites that a search engine may bring up, or than the opportunities search engines present to buy the item directly from the search. Large retailers, like Amazon, Walmart, and other recognizable brands have a large incentive to protect their customers from financially-motivated cyber crimes like identity theft, and so they are more likely to have considerable capital invested in their customers’ data security. The smaller sites don’t have nearly the resources or the public-opinion-driven incentive, and may even rip you off.

      However, be careful that the web address is spelled properly and is using the correct domain in the URL. Hackers will generate these sites to trick their victims into falling for a phishing scam. The “great deal” they just tried to snag may ultimately allow the site to snag their credentials and financial information.

      Look for the Padlock
      The next time you visit a website that asks for your credit card information, check the URL again, but this time, check to see that it begins with HTTPS. HTTPS signifies that the usual HTTP, or Hypertext Transfer Protocol, has added security (hence the added S) thanks to an added secure sockets layer of encryption. There should also be a padlock icon displayed in your address bar.

      These are indications that the site has been encrypted in order to safely process payment information. Sites with just HTTP and without the lock are inherently more susceptible to have their information hijacked during transit, including the information a customer inputs. Naturally, these sites should be avoided.

      Be Mindful When Mobile
      Many people are known to visit a store only to determine if an item is indeed the one that they want before ordering it online. Be wary if you are connected to a public Wi-Fi when doing your online shopping. Due to their high susceptibility to cyber attack, your activity while connected to these digital minefields should be limited at most, and should never include anything that involves sensitive personal or financial information.

      If your online shopping ‘trip’ is informed by these tips, you should be able to remain safe and sound while you make your purchases.

      Keeping Your Technology Up to Date May Be the Best Way to Retain Millennial Employees

      Keep in mind that this doesn’t apply solely to millennials. Anyone would get frustrated from having to deal with last generation’s technology. Employees that have technology that works for them will be much less likely to leave, so it’s worth keeping in mind that an employee satisfied with their technology will more likely be a loyal employee.

      A Future Workforce Study by Dell and Intel shows that 42 percent of millennials are ready and willing to leave a company that has no interest in providing them today’s standard of quality technology. The report was based on a poll of 4,000 full-time employees from all types of businesses, scattered throughout 10 different countries. Another statistic from the same study shows that 51 percent of millennials believe that virtual reality technology and the Internet of Things will be major contenders in the workplace in the near future, and that they will make face-to-face meetings practically unnecessary.

      Some folks believe that this trend comes from the fact that employees are generally consumers themselves, and especially with today’s youth, they understand that the best technology on the market is likely to improve the way that a business functions. Therefore, millennials might not immediately understand the woes of a corporate IT budget. It might help to explain to them the situation, and to assure them that you’re doing everything you can to resolve the issues in the near future.

      Keeping your business’s technology as up-to-date as possible doesn’t have to be challenging, and it poses several benefits that can give you a competitive edge. These days, you can take advantage of the best technology solutions “as a service,” meaning that you pay for them on a month-by-month basis. You get specifically what you need, without the hefty up-front price tag that often cripples budgets.

      Think about it this way; if your server unit experiences a hardware failure, what do you do? If your IT budget is exhausted, and you can’t afford to replace it immediately, you experience downtime that can further cripple your business. One of the best ways you can combat this is by preventing problems from happening in the first place through proactive management and maintenance. Furthermore, we can create an IT roadmap for you that lets you plan for future upgrades, so that your promises to procure new hardware and software solutions for your staff aren’t empty.
