Cyber Security – Reviewing Equifax Breach with Hi Tech Hui

Lessons learned from the Equifax breach:

  1. Patch Management – Know your environment and patch EVERYTHING. Not just Microsoft products and operating systems.
  2. Really…Patch Management! – 80% of all breaches are a result of poor patch management.
  3. Don’t put customer information on the internet – And if you absolutely have to, make sure it is encrypted.
  4. Put measures in place to detect intrusions – Most breaches are detected after hackers have been on a system for 90+ days.
  5. Get an experienced incident response team – Remember that public relations responses are JUST as important as technical responses.
  6. Cyber Insurance – Make sure you have adequate coverage and that your systems meet the requirements for your policy.
