"Proactive protection is not just about fixing vulnerabilities, it's about implementing a comprehensive security strategy and understanding your system boundaries and actively defending against cyber threats before they can breach your defenses."
In the latest episode of The Tea on Cybersecurity, Jara Rowe talks with Jim Goldman and Ryan Dunn to uncover the importance of being proactive in cybersecurity management to avoid the pitfalls of a cyber attack.
To be proactive, companies need to implement various security processes and technologies. These include patching management to ensure systems are up to date with the latest security patches, multi-factor authentication to add an extra layer of protection for accessing sensitive information, and security awareness and training programs to educate employees about potential threats and best practices.
By implementing these measures, companies can reduce the number of vulnerabilities in their systems over time.
