Written By:

Recently I was part of a panel discussion on combatting ransomware at the SecureWorld Atlanta event. An interesting conversation developed around the old stalwart of patching computers and systems.

User Risk Report Shows Marked Lack of Security Awareness Among Workers

Written By:

But you cannot count on them to stop ransomware infections, and they absolutely cannot prevent phishing emails from reaching your inbox.

One of those sessions was a panel discussion titled, “Hazards on the Horizon – Emerging Threats.” The panel of CISOs discussed both the current cyber threat landscape and offered advice for keeping networks and systems as secure as possible during this era of frequent cyberattacks. Each of the five panelists was asked to provide their one key piece of advice. Here’s what they said:
