As I mentioned before, it’s not a good strategy to pretend that cybersecurity breaches will never happen, or they won’t be very damaging if they do. Learning about the current state of the technology, and what options can be achieved easily is the first goal in better protecting oneself and one’s company.

Malicious cyber activity is big business - it costs the US economy more than $5 billion annually. According to the US Council of Economic Advisors, this figure is expected to exceed $6 trillion globally by 2021. In 2019, over 7.9 billion data breaches were reported, twice the number of cases seen in 2018. These worrying statistics make cybercrime more profitable than the global trade of all major illegal drugs combined.

Secure data at rest. It’s important to make sure that user and other critical data is protected even if it isn’t moving. One way to do this is with regular backups, encrypted drives, and good passwords.

This is a combination of a couple principles that are too lengthy to describe here, but involve the theory of “zero-trust” as well as “micro-segmenting” your network.
