Cyber Hygiene: If Tools Could Talk
Listen Up: Security Tools Tell a Cyber Hygiene Story
What if all of your company’s cybersecurity tools could talk? What would they say to the teams managing them? What would they tell the CISO or compliance team? Tools have a voice, but the challenge is that most security and risk executives simply aren’t listening to them. Not because they don’t want to, but because they don’t have the means to do so.
Companies add tool after tool to secure their data, systems, and users. But instead of increased security, they’re left with misconfigured, repetitive, or siloed tools and little visibility and control over their environments. This leads to poor cyber hygiene and creates severe security vulnerabilities, especially as telework surges.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Security tools—when correctly configured, maintained, and monitored—are essential to proper cyber hygiene. And just a few simple actions can help you maximize ROI on current tools, start continuously monitoring those tools, and gain comprehensive visibility and control of your network and endpoints. All of which leads to better cyber hygiene.
