Over the last few months, the financial sector, as well as many other industries, has had to adjust and make the shift to remote set-ups almost overnight due to COVID-19 restrictions. The transition has accelerated digital transformation; the sector’s previous reliance on face-to-face, or, ‘high-touch’ customer interactions have yielded to a completely digitalized experience.
Without effective cybersecurity protection, any connected medical device – including infusion pumps, pacemakers, smart pens, vital signs monitors, and more – is at risk of attack, whether it is connected to a hospital network or is one of the millions of distributed devices not connected to any network. This jeopardizes the lives of the millions of patients who depend on them.
Since June, protests have been happening across the United States. As civil disobedience increases, law enforcement agencies will prepare for the possibility of protests across the country.

Here are a few ways you can prepare to protect clients’ businesses.
The University of West Florida has been re-designated by the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security as the Southeast Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity (CAE-C) Regional Hub.
Cyberpion released research today showing that most (83%) of the top U.S. retailers have connections to a vulnerable third-party asset, and nearly half of them (43%) have vulnerabilities that pose an immediate cybersecurity risk.
Despite the explosive growth in API usage worldwide, many security and development teams are unable to answer basic questions about their API programs – like how many do we have, who owns them, and what do they do. This poses a huge security risk for organizations – especially in today’s complicated threat landscape. To protect against security risks, it’s crucial that organizations understand all aspects of their API programs and their associated security challenges. This better positions leaders to improve their organization’s security posture through proper mitigation strategies.
Today's complex computing environments are rife with vulnerabilities. Keeping your organizational data safe requires employing today's best data security practice: adopting the premise that identity and access management provide the new and true security perimeter. Powerful identity and access management (IAM) models of public cloud providers enable the deployment of applications and data with far greater protection than what is possible in traditional cloud security. However, these cloud provider IAM solutions are not without risk when misused.
Enterprises are grappling with increased complexity as cloud adoption increases, the perimeter expands, and digital transformation projects take hold. The accelerated shift to remote working has only added to the complexity. As more businesses leverage hybrid IT environments in their digital transformation journey, many confront challenges managing identities and access across multiple applications, clouds, networks and servers.
Not long ago, most business was conducted within the confines of office walls, that is, until 2020. This year, work as we know it evolved practically overnight, as employees went home with company cell phones, laptops and information, and many have yet to return. Unlike ever before, companies must rely on their people to secure any work-related technology and trust that corporate data and information are safe. But should they? And is their current security strategy adequate? To find out, we talk to Kory Patrick, Risk & Security Solution Executive at TEKsystems.
