20 for 2020: Walls Aren’t Enough

(Email and Web Browser Protections)

Originally from David’s Linkedin:

Last week we talked about email & web browser protections, and how they act like a gated wall, filtering & blocking harmful traffic to your network. But what’s a wall without guards? Without guards, there’s no one to identify if a bad guy’s gotten through, let alone isolate & eliminate them.

The same is true in your information security program. The email & web filters/blocks are walls that keep away much of the harm of the internet, but they’re not perfect (and neither are the people who maintain them).

A good cybersecurity program will have malware defenses that help you identify when a hacker has made it past your defenses; further, they can help you isolate & eliminate that threat.
