Active Directory out of the box defaults aren’t enough to keep your network safe. Here’s the word on the street about frustrating attackers in your Active Directory environment. It’s easy to make things hard. But it’s not hard to make things easy. Spin that how you will, running Active Directory efficiently isn’t necessarily easy, but it certainly can be easy to make things hard for attackers in your environment. Here are some baseline things you can do to make your Active Directory environment frustrating for attackers. Attackers’ main resource is time, and if you can slow them down and frustrate them, you have a better chance of making attackers look for easier targets, or at least more time for your response team to identify and protect your assets.
Internet connectivity has become a must-have feature for digital business operations. Devices on the edge provide significant value, but the constant connectivity comes with a price in terms of security risk. Hackers may target industrial controls, healthcare devices, sensors, or vehicles through their open ports and global IP a
The number of cyberattacks on financial institutions (FIs) cannot be overstated. In the past year, there have been more than one billion cyberattacks on financial institutions. That is three hundred times more than any other industry, such as retail, insurance, or healthcare. At an average cost of $18 million dollars for each successful attack, what are you to do? How do you combat this aggressively growing threat? In this webinar, OneSpan and ISMG will summarize key findings from a recent study that surveyed the state of adaptive authentication from over 150 FIs and what techniques can be taken to mitigate the increasing rate of cyberthreats.
Success in multiple industry sectors or any of the hundreds of new tech-heavy jobs emerging in the modern economy requires a core competency: computational thinking and skills. Computational thinking and skills extend beyond computer programming to include a larger set of knowledge and skills broadly captured by a wide swath of STEM disciplines, including cybersecurity. This webinar will explain why acquiring computational thinking and skills are important for STEM-related careers and how to incorporate and assess computational thinking and skills as part of cybersecurity education and training programs.
