What is the IoT (Internet of things)? This is such a widely used term but often misunderstood.  The Internet of Things is the fleet of devices with embedded electronics and Internet connectivity that are everywhere you look. That includes weather monitoring sensors, traffic lights, the GPS unit on your bicycle, your car, your smart-phone and countless other "things". These devices are literally everywhere. We are constantly swimming in a sea of things that have the ability to communicate with humans or with other devices.

Size matters when it comes to network security! The smaller the business, the larger the threat.

A business is subject to legal requirements mandating specific measures to safeguard the
confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data. Lack of compliance can lead to fines and civil, and sometimes criminal, penalties.

The Carbanak attack is considered by many  to be the most sophisticated attack the world has seen in terms of the tactics and methods the cybercriminals used to remain covert.   However this ‘sophisticated attack’ was initiated by a relatively low-tech phishing email. As is all too often the case, the targeted banks were lax in handling emails and in detecting a breach once it had occurred.

Many  IT professionals worry about the potential of a hacking attack but the really savvy IT people know that by securing their internal data they are also protecting against a hacking attack and ensuring the hackers won’t get their hands on sensitive data. It may seem a simple question—does your database contain sensitive data? We all know that social security numbers, for instance, are definitely sensitive data.

A staple of the System Administrators network security toolbox, honeypots can provide companies with unique benefits. For those who might not be familiar with the term, a honeypot is a computer system whose sole purpose is to be attacked, scanned or exploited. Why would one go through the trouble of willingly weakening a computer system? Do we not have enough issues keeping our systems secure in the first place? As valid as those questions might be, they entirely miss the point; for honeypots are amazing when it comes to observing an attacker's behavior, wasting their time, frustrating them and generally keeping them away from the systems and networks that we really care about. Any time an attacker spends interacting with a honeypot is time not spent attacking a real system.
