In a previous post we looked at Cyber Hygiene and the importance of building cyber security practices into the heart of your operations. In this article we will be furthering the philosophy that prevention is better than cure, with a comprehensive list of resources that can help you keep up to speed with the rapid changes and emergent threats to your digital security.
Whether you use all or one of these resources the key thing is in trying to stay ahead of threats as they appear. This may seem daunting at first as even a brief search online will find reports of regular substantial threats on both national and global scales. You may even consider yourself to be ‘small-fry’ in terms of the vast array of hackers and threats out there, but as we have discussed previously; insider threats, email phishing scams and malware are all pernicious and hard to detect if you don’t have the right software and protections in place.
Below are some carefully selected and trusted resources you can use to keep in the know. For a full and comprehensive assessment of your email security, why not request a Demo from us at Pie Security.
