Security Clearance Insecurity

Mar 20, 2023 9:45:57 AM

Ransomware attacks and other cybersecurity threats are hitting companies across the federal supply chain, leaving businesses and government agencies vulnerable to major data breaches and financial losses. In this episode of "Security Clearance Insecurity," host Lyndy Kyzer speaks with GroupSense CEO, Kurtis Minder, about the latest cyber threats and best practices for protecting against them.

One of the main topics of discussion is the rise of ransomware attacks, which involve hackers locking up a company's computer systems and demanding payment in exchange for releasing the data. These attacks have become increasingly common in recent years, and they can be devastating for businesses that are unprepared.

Kurtis speaks about the essentials for protecting against ransomware attacks, including a comprehensive backup system on the corporate network. This means regularly backing up important data to a secure offsite location, so that even if hackers do manage to lock up a company's systems, the data can still be recovered. Other tips include keeping software up to date, using strong passwords, and training employees on how to identify and avoid phishing scams.

Another topic of discussion is the importance of cybersecurity in the federal supply chain. The experts explain that many government contractors and subcontractors are required to comply with strict cybersecurity standards in order to do business with the government. Failure to meet these standards can result in lost contracts and reputational damage.

Overall, the podcast provides valuable insights into the state of cybersecurity in the federal supply chain and the steps that businesses can take to protect against threats. Whether you're a government contractor or a private sector company, it's important to stay up to date on the latest threats and best practices, in order to safeguard your data and your business.
