They have thousands of individuals connecting to a singular network. Small Business and Enterprise can have hundreds to thousands of endpoint devices and email accounts. In K-12 and institutions of higher education, individuals include students and staff of all ages and computer safety skills – so how can you train them on the red flags of hackers and cyber crime?
In the cyber smart series, we focus on some core concepts – Email Security and Cyber Safety to combat "Phishing". Cyber criminals use email and text messages as the primary method of malware distribution to businesses, hospitals, utilities, governement offices and schools.
By teaching employees, students and staff how to spot the red flags of suspicious emails, the threat of them clicking and unintentionally downloading a virus, keylogger or ransomware on the organizations's network decreases substantially. Watch the Email Security Video Series.
The use of Zero-Trust Security Software, also known as Application Whitelisting is the best cyber defense. If a program isn't on the white list, it is blocked, period.
Whitelisting prevents breaches and malware attacks such as ransomware from occuring in the first place. Additonal email and phone number whitelists enhance email and data security.
Stop cybercriminals from accessing your data. Get complete control of your networks and stop living in fear of the next malware or ransomware attack. Application and network whitelisting tools are designed so that businesses, federal agencies, healthcare and academic institutions can control precisely what applications run on their servers and networks.Contact the cybersecurity professionals at PC Matic to learn more about our Suite of Cyber Security Tools and Application Control using Whitelisting.
