Determine Whether Managed Security Systems Are Right for Your Business

Much of our business is being conducted remotely using online resources. This includes the transfer and storage of confidential information that makes even the most established organizations susceptible to security breaches. We have seen historic hacks resulting in information leaks from companies like Equifax, and even the FBI. Finding a better way to protect sensitive data has generated interest in Managed Security System Providers (MSSP).

Exploring the Benefits of SIEM

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is a marriage of Security Information Management (SIM) and Security Event Management (SEM) designed to provide a technological bird’s eye view of potential security issues within a company.

On April 10, 2018, the world watched as Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, appeared before Capitol Hill in an effort to explain to the US Senate, the massive data breach involving the social media giant. This created a new series of questions for digital consumers who felt exposed and violated when they learned of political ad targeting based on the harvesting of their personal information. Allegations by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) accuse Zuckerberg of opening Facebook to an app development firm named Cambridge Analytics which used the data to develop ads for political figures.

Consequently, the WannaCry ransomware attack has become recognized as a far more dangerous cyber attack than any other data breach that businesses had ever encountered before. Unfortunately, WannaCry was only one obstacle in a long and constant battle against cyber crime.
