Data Breaches, Node Chats

How important is identity management for businesses?

Identity management is focused on protecting the identities of employees and clients. Compromised employees’ identities can be used by hackers to gain access and wreak havoc on unexpecting companies.

Cybersecurity insurance can help protect businesses from the negative impact of exposed identities.

One way we may protect our insured’s clients from identity theft after a data breach is by activating credit monitoring. If criminals try to use their leaked data to commit financial fraud this will be flagged and prevented.

5 stats that highlight the growing importance of identity security.

Node Chat Podcast Launches!

We are proud to announce the launch of Node Chats, your podcast for all things cybersecurity.

Neil Gurnhill kicks us off with a hot topic, inviting David Kruse, Director of Business Development at Tetra Defense, to discuss the evolving nature of ransomware.

Ransomware is a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid.

This is a current, very real issue that affects large companies, small business and the everyday person.

Learn how to spot early signs that ransomware is on your network before encryption.

David talks about the factors that can influence early detection such as the level of information security systems that your company has in place to flag the invasion and the quality and skill of the person who compromised that network.

If you have a hacker that’s just a bull in a china shop and hasn’t quite figured out how to be more stealthy, you’ll see indicators of compromise all over the place.

David Kruse, Director of Business Development at Tetra Defense
