Has your business recently assessed your entire security strategy, including any security gaps you may have across your workflows? Do you have a layered security strategy in place?
If not, now may be the perfect time to revisit your plan.
In this blog post, find out:
Advances in AI technology like ChatGPT mean that it will be increasingly easy to unleash threats on a huge audience.
A recent article in Wired noted that researchers were able to jailbreak ChatGPT’s language model to induce it to create malicious content, including phishing emails.
Plus, legitimate applications are increasingly under threat.
In late March 2023, business communication and video conferencing vendor (VoIP) 3CX announced that its Electron Windows app included a security vulnerability. The vendor’s security alert announcement contains the exact version numbers affected.
According to 3CX, the attack was part of an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT), meaning that it was not a time-bound incident and the attack appears to have been state-sponsored.
Specifically, attackers enabled the 3CX desktop application to run an update that included information-stealing malware.
The bad news: This supply chain attack was far-reaching. And similar attacks on legitimate applications will continue.
The good news: Right Networks was able to notify customers using the 3CX desktop application about the attack in its earliest hours. (Because of the layered security solutions in place.)
The takeaway: Now, more than ever, your business needs affordable security—and a dedicated partner—to stop attacks from multiple entry points.
Not convinced that now is the time to consider a layered security approach? Let’s discuss a few items that might be stopping you from taking the next step:
Put simply, layered security means that multiple security solutions are in place to protect you from various attack vectors.
If one type of security fails, other safeguards are in place to protect your data. The idea of layered security is originally derived from the military term “defense in depth,” but you can adapt this idea to fit how your firm or business operates.
Yes! If cost is blocking you from launching a robust security program, consider a managed services partner.
While layered security seems overwhelming due to its many aspects, the right partner will help you create an approach that works for your business.
Ultimately, you can offload security tasks while paying an affordable subscription fee for the protection you need.
