Remote Working in the Time of COVID-19: These Steps Are Key to Cybersecurity

With the designation of the COVID-19 disease as a global pandemic hotly followed by a declaration of a national emergency by President Trump, the American way of life shifted dramatically – with the home office becoming a new reality for millions.

Unfortunately, the rise in the global remote workforce puts more pressure on IT teams, network architectures, and even equipment. But there are also very real cybersecurity challenges to consider.

Introducing GovCybersecurityHub – Your Go-To Resource for Staying Informed

The security of public sector networks is under attack. Each day security and IT professionals work hard to defend the integrity of mission-critical data and systems against increasingly frequent and complex cyberattacks.

Staying informed is critical to staying ahead.

That’s great, but there are literally dozens of cyber news outlets, journals, and bloggers to follow. Security leaders and practitioners don’t have time to filter what’s urgent and relevant to their organizations. That’s why we’ve created GovCybersecurityHub.

New CrowdStrike Report: More Cyber Criminals Adopting “Brazen” Nation-State Style Tactics

New insight from DLT partner, CrowdStrike, finds that attackers are “continuing to ramp up in both their brazen behavior and sophisticated means.”

From the CISO: Why Columbia University Medical Center Made the Move to Cloud-Native Cybersecurity

More and more organizations are making the move to cloud-based security solutions. Today, 33 percent of organizations are planning to adopt one or more security-as-a-service (SECaaS) solutions. The efficiency with which endpoint security solutions can provide protection, particularly when delivered as-a-service, is a key strategic consideration for many organizations – perhaps none more so than America’s network of medical schools and teaching hospitals.

Combating Cyber Threats Through Transformation: A Conversation with State CIOs and CISOs

Although state and local technology leaders are increasingly prioritizing cybersecurity in their operations, government has a long way to go in securing critical information and systems from cyberattacks.

In light of this struggle, Route Fifty, in partnership with CrowdStrike, recently hosted a webcast that showcases the work of state and local governments who have undergone a transformation in cybersecurity protocols – and the challenges they continue to face.

A Closer Look at Blockchain and Supply Chain Risk Management

“Build it in, don’t bolt it on” is a mantra we all learn when we study cybersecurity, yet we see it in practice far too rarely. Our adversaries also know this principle and have begun to implement it by infecting the supply chain – hardware and software – as close to the source as possible. DLT technology partners Crowdstrike and Symantec both note the trend in recent threat reports. In their July,2018 report1, Crowdstrike notes that:

Cybersecurity Month: Closing the Gaps in U.S. Government Cybersecurity Resilience

In a year in which we’ve witnessed the carnage of the Atlanta ransomware attack and U.S. government agencies remain on high alert about possible Russian cyber-attacks against U.S. critical infrastructure and electoral systems, new research shows that the cybersecurity landscape is evolving quicker than agencies can respond.
