Stop the hackers with CISSP training

Sony, Snapchat, Personal Celebrity accounts and even MI6’s London headquarters (at least in Skyfall) have recently been devastated by hackers with apparently strong motives and high levels of intelligence, innovation and organisation. What was once an irritation, with worms causing shutdowns and spam emails, or in the worst case theft of card details and passwords has become a serious problem. The news is now flooded with reports of hacktivists and government departments running riot across global databases and websites.
 
It’s not just software which is at risk either. As mobile devices become smarter, they also become more vulnerable if regular updates do not take place. Hardware such as routers and servers are equally susceptible to having their encryption broken, which is often outdated and insufficient. Sometimes the motive of the hacker is just to try and find some free wifi for a few minutes to book a flight or send a tweet, but this can also be far more malicious.
 
So which steps can you take to reverse the trend and remain as secure as possible? There are a number of areas to think about.
 
1. Stay up to date - keep your software up to date, for example operating systems and anti-virus software. You can schedule updates to occur overnight so minimal interruption occurs.
 
2. Keep your passwords safe - make these difficult to guess, only tell those who you trust won’t do anything foolish with them and always change default passwords.
 
3. Think like a hacker - spend time reviewing your technology and judge whether you have any weak links in the chain, for example an unprotected network or logins such as “password”
 
4. Educate your people - knowledge is power, so a lack of knowledge can also be a weakness. Spending time showing staff how to identify spam emails, which websites are offering deals which are probably too good to be true and showing the importance of remembering not to leave important drives on public transport will reap benefits as you manage to hold on to trade secrets and PC performance is not subdued by malware at every turn.
 
5. Educate yourself - taking a week out to gain a painstakingly developed and closely guarded qualification such as CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) will give you a complete new way of thinking about information security. CISSP covers a whole range of domains, taken from the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge, ensuring you are up to date on key practices. From the basics such as Security Management and Network Security, to the more grey areas of Cryptography and Ethics, CISSP is a complete package explaining the roles, processes and best practices behind information security.
 
In the wake of recent large scale hacks and reports such as CNBC’s “Why Europe May Be More at Risk From Hacking Than US” we have made more CISSP training dates available in key locations such as London and the Thames Valley. We also have onsite training available so a CISSP qualification can be gained en masse by your key decision makers and IT staff. Please get in touch today so that we can arrange a CISSP training course at the lowest price possible.
