E-book: Views on Cybersecurity By @Kevin_Jackson | @CloudExpo #Cloud

The U.S. government has launched the “30-day Cybersecurity Sprint” as a tactic designed to beef up cybersecurity protocols

E-book: Educate Yourself with Dell Insight Partner Views on Cybersecurity

Data security breaches and hacker attacks on private businesses, health organizations and government agencies in the U.S. have grabbed headlines with increasing frequency, it seems. There is zero doubt about the damage these events cause. Cybercriminals and hackers walk away with customers’ payment card information and employee data while companies and federal authorities investigate the source of the leaks and spend millions of dollars to repair the harm.

Some see these breaches as a threat to national security and in response, the U.S. government has launched the “30-day Cybersecurity Sprint” as a tactic designed to beef up cybersecurity protocols. According to media reports, specific program steps include:

  • Immediately fixing any cybersecurity vulnerabilities
  • Tightening policies and practices for privileged users who can access sensitive information
  • Implementing multifactor authentication procedures for accessing federal networks
  • Employing electronic “indicators” provided by the Department of Homeland Security that show when there has been a malicious cyberattack

Do your part in supporting the sprint by educating yourself about cybersecurity. The “Insight Partner Views on Cybersecurity” e-book can help. By addressing security from multiple viewpoints, the e-book reinforces the need for society to build a culture that embraces information risk management.

The “Insight Partner Views on Cybersecurity” captures the latest news, trends and best practices surrounding cybersecurity by influential bloggers in the Dell Insight Partner program. Topics include:

  • The chief information security officer (CISO) role in cybersecurity
  • Security attacks and countermeasures
  • Mobile device security
  • U.S. Department of Defense cloud security guidelines
  • The emerging science of digital forensics
