There is nothing more important than keeping your district and staff and students safe. Cybersecurity is not a topic that you can simply check off the list as done. Much like the computer industry itself, six months ago was the Stone Age. The bad guys are getting more and more creative. However, many of the simplest and stupid attacks just keep working. In recent weeks simple phishing emails that are obviously not from the district have been effective with your highly distracted users. Google and Microsoft forms attacks continue to work. A recent catastrophic breach that you have been reading about in the news now is blamed "on the intern" who set a "companyname123" administrative password for a key server and pasted it to a personal, non-company share folder - violating company policy. How do you defend against users that don't do the right thing and techs that get sloppy? How do you defend against doing everything perfect and still getting breached due to one of those unknown or unseen vulnerabilities that vendors tell us about every month? There is no perfect system. My ex-NSA friends keep reminding me that "everything can be hacked". However, there are steps we all can take to be more vigilant. Hopefully, we can collectively prevent a breach, but if something does get through, we must focus on prompt notification and containment and prevention of data loss, and the compromise of personally identifiable information. CSI's CyberSentinel Managed Endpoint Detect & Respond (CSEDR) is one major step in strengthening your overall endpoint defenses. It combines the best next generation EDR technologies with a 24x7x365 Security Operations Center (SOC) monitoring your endpoints. Join us for a live demo and discussion of how this solution can help you up your game in protecting your district from the latest threats. To watch this recording click here.
