This is the second week that we are publishing ways to avoid being hacked at work. Again, we hope that even if you and your organization are fully aware of these we will be able to heighten the awareness so your organization will be ready when these attacks occur.
#2 Follow all badging and physical security and visitor protocols currently in place inside your organization. The best way to hack into an organization or to gain access to private information is to walk right in the front door. Security threats will often gain access to sensitive information by simply walking into a company headquarters, finding a conference room, and plugging in to the local intranet where information is often thinly protected. By following all physical security and visitor protocols you can assist your organization in tracking who should and shouldn’t be in your building. Also, always be aware of your physical work space and “do not” be afraid to ask questions or call someone if something or someone looks suspicious.
The idea of penetration testing seems to be something that has grown at light speed over the past few years as well-known names like Target, Zappos, and Apple have come under intense attention for their public security breaches. Information security is ever-evolving and penetration testing addresses these issues head on. We have been told over and over again, that experts in this area are hard to find, and even harder to employ. The basis of PenTestPros is that we solve this challenge by offering direct services, at a reasonable cost. To find out more, visit our links above our utilize the contact form below.
