Equifax Data Breach Brings Up Some Concerns

  • Not sure about any of you, but the recent, massive data breach on Equifax has me quite concerned for the current state of security at many businesses.

    When stories like this: http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-41257576 and this: https://blogs.wsj.com/cio/2017/09/18/scourge-of-outdated-software-creates-massive-cyber-risk/ - appear, it makes me think about how many other large corporations or businesses dealing with such vital information leave their IT outdated and technology open to be infiltrated by cybercriminals.

    With this in mind, what practices are you using to make sure you have proper protection? What solutions do you utilize to ensure the protection of your business?

  • Here are the ways to protect your business from Equifax Data Breach:

    Asset Inventory

    Vulnerability and Compliance Management

    Endpoint Protection

    Regular Audits on Security Posture

    Review your credit reports

    Freeze your credit (after reviewing your credit report)

    Avoid giving businesses your personal information whenever possible.
