Cybersecurity threats are constantly evolving and trends change rapidly, so it can be hard to know how to stay on top of it all. Following leading cybersecurity experts and keeping up to date with information they share is a good way to do this, so in this blog post we’re going to share some of the advice they have. 

Collaboration is key

Nations naturally want to protect their citizens, businesses and increasingly connected infrastructure and industries from [these] threats. And the easiest way to do that is by shutting the door. The easiest, the simplest – but also the least effective…Cybersecurity companies want to and must collaborate. To state the obvious: there are no borders online, so it’s hardly surprising that cyberthreats are borderless too.” Eugene Kaspersky, CEO & Founder, Kaspersky

Get the basics right

In today’s digital workplace, there is no excuse for having a poor security design. Security should be the number one boardroom agenda of any business, especially one that relies on IT services. Technical and physical safeguards should always be in place. Simple things like changing the default passwords on server infrastructure, encrypting sensitive data, monitoring access into the server rooms, and monitoring network traffic and server usage can all help business security.” Brian Gill, Co-founder of Gillware

Build a strong and diverse team

Build a network of people around you. If you are the smartest person in the room, then you are probably in the wrong room. Security is an ever-changing industry, so there are always new programs or software to implement. However, building a strong network around you allows space for continuous growth in your career and furthers your education in the industry.” Kim Hooper, Regional Loss Prevention Manager, Amazon

Make sure your employees are security aware

Employee security training should be a part of your company culture, and the more widespread it is at your company, the more people will buy into it…Try to stay away from long emails and memos that a lot of employees will skim the first couple of sentences before deleting. Instead, try creating some videos, or maybe hang up some infographics in main areas of the office, like the break room, near the water fountain, and even in the restroom.” Adnan Raja, Vice President of Marketing for
