Cloud Security Secrets to Keep Your Information Safe

You can take a number of steps to maximize cloud security, hence yielding more protection. It is vital that the people in charge need to have a clear battle plan. Identifying who is responsible for cyber security is a good place to start. Is it the IT department, the company executives, or an outside agency? The leadership needs to designate who is in charge and responsible for the cyber security of the company. Also, it will alleviate finger-pointing if a problem occurs.

Here are some frightening cyber security facts posted by DMR:

  • Cost of cyber attacks annually = $400 billion
  • Percentage of US adults that suffered a security incident between Dec 2015 – Dec 2016 = 51%
  • Average cost of a data breach = $6.5 million
  • Number of data breaches reported in 2015 = 781 / in 2016 = 1,093

Forbes contributor, Steve Morgan, conducted a cybersecurity analysis of large companies in 2016. Here are a few of Mr. Morgan’s findings that are relevant to any organization:

  • 458% increase in the number of times hackers searched Internet of Things connections for vulnerabilities. (AT&T summary)
  • Malware attacks nearly doubled to 8.19 billion, with Android ecosystem being the prime target. (Dell)
  • The healthcare industry was the one most frequently attacked, speeding straight past financial services and manufacturing. (IBM X-Force)
  • Attacks on automobile systems will increase rapidly in 2016 due to the rapid increase in connected automobile hardware built without foundational security principles. (McAfee Labs)
  • Spear-phishing campaigns targeting employees increased 55% last year. (Symantec)

Cloud Security Questions That Need Answers

Is your data safe from hackers in the cloud?

For most individuals and small businesses, the answer to this question is probably “yes,” but larger businesses are at a higher risk. Hackers are not peeping Toms; they are thieves. They want information that will yield financial gain in some way. Thieves can sell credit card data, contact information, and many security secrets if they are able to hack into the network of a large company.

Information security events that affect cloud systems are occurring with no end in sight, so it should be no surprise that the cloud should be treated as a nonsecure environment with numerous threats and concerns. The cloud has all of the same (and even more) vulnerabilities and weaknesses as other computing platforms, including configuration issues, patching and upgrade requirements (to fix weaknesses), source code issues, unauthorized privilege escalation, and unexpected downtime, to name a few. A statistical analysis of cloud security incidents over a five-year period identified 175 cloud security incidents and 12 threats to cloud security   ISACA Journal

Specific policies ensure a smooth operation and avoids lapses in security. Keeping all software updated to the newest version is also a best practice.

Have you provided cloud security for your company?

The current environment is cause for alarm. Companies that neglect security are inviting disaster and failure into their operations. A good analogy is the foolish young driver who feels there is no need for a seatbelt because he is a good driver. Some companies have very smart IT staff and assume they can fix anything that may happen. Even if they can, the cost of a breach is far greater than the cost of improved security.

Do you know the top cyber security statistics that keep us up at night?

Remember, no organization is exempt from attack. As NetworkWorld stated, “a breach can happen to any organization at any time.” Whether you are a hospitality, financial, or healthcare company, vulnerabilities exist. Have no fear; IDR Group is here to help. However, before we help, here are some of the most pressing cyber security statistics to take in as an organization:

  1. Over 169 million personal records were exposed in 2015, stemming from 781 publicized breaches across the financial, business, education, government and healthcare sectors. “ITRC Data Breach Reports – 2015 Year-End Totals” | ITRC
  2. The average global cost per each lost or stolen record containing confidential and sensitive data was $154. The industry with the highest cost per stolen record was healthcare, at $363 per record. “Cost of Data Breach Study: Global Analysis” | IBM/ Ponemon
  3. The median number of days that attackers stay dormant within a network before detection is over 200. “Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics” | Microsoft
  4. As much as 70 percent of cyberattacks use a combination of phishing and hacking techniques and involve a secondary victim. “2015 Data Breach Investigations Report” | Verizon
  5. 74 percent of CISOs are concerned about employees stealing sensitive company information. “SANS 2015 Survey on Insider Threats” | SpectorSoft

Steps to Protect Valuable Cloud Data

Strong Passwords Improves Cloud Security

  1. We all resist the need for this, but it ranks at the top for improving your cloud security. As we learned this past year in the political realm, “password” is not a good password because it is too obvious.
  2. Change your password regularly. Again, I hear the groans, but this strengthens the security of your information and that of your clients. This is especially true in the cloud universe.


 IDRGroup | Cloud Security Infographic image 4

A Team Trained to Avoid Traps Improves Cloud Security

  1. Only necessary employees need access to cloud information. The job should be done by capable team members. Obviously, they need to be trustworthy and reliable.
  2. Whoever is in charge of cloud security needs to train the team in basic security consciousness. Those with access to the cloud in your company need to be made aware of phishing, scams, viruses, etc. They do not need to be certified as IT people, but they need to be equipped to work as a team to combat hackers.
  3. Never download software unless by IT personnel. They should be the only people who verify legitimate software to install.


 IDRGroup | Cloud Security Infographic image 3

Beware of Common Mistakes That Compromise Cloud Security

  1. Phishing scams are a common practice of hackers. Remember, attackers will try and infiltrate you with emails that are not legit. Phishing scams are simply the sending of emails purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce team members to reveal personal information. Bold phishing scams will request passwords or maybe even credit card numbers.
  2. Downloading software, especially if it’s free, is risky. Only IT personnel should download and install, and only legitimate software.

We could list other examples, but the fact is that the Internet opens gateways that thieves exploit. Please use common sense before attacks happen. IDR Group can help you and your company create a secure network that is protected internally and in the cloud. Contact us for a free consultation.

Cybersecurity For Education: Are Students Vulnerable To Hacking?

IDRGroup - Cybersecurity For Education: Are Students Vulnerable To Hacking?

With a constantly evolving technological landscape, education has embraced digital connectivity and innovation. This connectivity provides students, educators, and researchers with access to extensive data, real-time interaction with faculty, and more. Unfortunately, however, cybersecurity for education has become increasingly troublesome, as data breaches and ransomware attacks become more common.

Why Students?

It’s easy to assume that hacking students is a bit of thankless task; most college kids are famously broke and have little top secret information. Nonetheless, students share personal and sensitive data with their institutions, including social security numbers, financial information, medical records and more. In addition, students are the easiest access point for most hackers. Collegians typically access their university email and coursework via multiple devices (i.e. laptop, tablet, smartphone); though they may not be aware of the steps they should take to keep their data safe and private. Sending a phishing email to a college student with just the right amount of authoritative air could give hackers all the access they want.

Why Colleges?

This one is pretty simple – colleges and universities are home to most of the leading research and development teams in the U.S. And, because sharing information is a hallmark of scholarly pursuits, the security parameters for a website or third party program with sensitive data may not be as impermeable as one would hope. Corporations have a much bigger incentive to keep their innovations private. This is mostly to guard against direct competition, but even these large companies have been subject to devastating cyber attacks.

Why K-12 Schools?

Kindergarten through 12th grade school systems are not exempt from attack, either. While they may seem like low-level targets – less innovation, less sensitive data being stored on school servers – they are nevertheless a prime target for ransomware. These attacks seize a user’s computer system or network while the hackers demand a ransom to return it to proper working order. This type of extortion can be devastating for smaller districts with insufficient funds.

What Should We Do?

Cybersecurity for education is becoming one of the hottest tech topics around. Educational institutions and security experts are making it a priority to revamp security procedures and better analyze weak points to reduce the number of possible attacks. This includes safeguarding systems from overly ambitious students as well. Administrators, educators, parents and students need to first acknowledge that the problem exists. Only then can they work together to find a solution and create more robust digital safeguards against hacking.

Cyber Mission Force

Cyber Mission Force (Part Two of Military Cybersecurity Threats)

The USA is still a world power and it remains the strongest. But this could change, and our enemies would revel in our downfall. The good news is that we have a resolve to preserve our way of life, and compassion to protect our allies. American has a cyber mission force and this article explores what this entails. Also we have the money, the technological resources, and the brilliant people to secure the future. This is part two of our look at military cybersecurity threats. Read part one of our military cybersecurity threats here.

Cyber Mission Force

Military Cybersecurity Threats and America’s Cyber Mission Force

We ought to be grateful to live in an advanced and civilized country. However, we will win the cybersecurity war. Here is an over-view of America’s position as it currently stands. The US Defense website has a sophisticated strategy to protect the country with:

A Cyber Defense Posture

The purpose of this strategy is to guide the development of DoD’s cyber forces and strengthen our cyber defense and cyber deterrence posture. It focuses on building cyber capabilities and organizations for DoD’s three primary cyber missions.

  1. Defend DoD Networks
  2. Defend the U.S. Homeland and U.S. National Interests
  3. Provide Cyber Support to Military Operations and Contingency Plans

Three Primary Cyber Missions

State and non-state actors threaten disruptive and destructive attacks against the United States and conduct cyber-enabled theft of intellectual property to undercut the United States’ technological and military advantage. DoD must develop its cyber forces and strengthen its cyber defense and cyber deterrence posture.

  • National Mission Teams — 13 Teams
  • Cyber Protection Teams — 68 Teams
  • Combat Mission Teams — 27 Teams
  • Support Teams — 25 Teams

It’s amazing to do a study on today’s U.S. military. It’s flabbergasting! Our cyber mission force is strong, almost as strong as our traditional military. We have ships, planes, guns, missiles, and tanks that surpass the imagination in what they can do. Just a few of these weapons could have won WW II all by themselves! However, this is the 21st century and things have changed. What good is a plane or a tank without fuel? What good is any weapon without ammunition? Cyber attacks can neutralize conventional weapons systems by taking out internet, supply operations, and military communications.

Back to the Washington Post, Trump reveals his concerns about hostile cyber attacks:

The Federal Government has a responsibility to defend America from cyberattacks that could threaten U.S. national interests or cause significant damage to American’s personal or economic security. That responsibility extends to protecting both privately and publicly operated critical networks and infrastructure.

In conclusion, we are not fighting Attila the Hun. The cyber mission force is our defense. Furthermore, our battle is fought first and foremost in the technology arena. If we lose there, our advanced weapons systems cannot save us. However, we are winning there, so let’s be optimistic.

The Military Cybersecurity Threats we Face Today

The Military Cybersecurity Threats we Face Today

It wasn’t that many years ago the word, “Cybersecurity,” did not exist, except perhaps in a science fiction script. Now in 2017, the word is as common as “apple pie.” Actually, I’m not sure the last time I heard apple pie mentioned. This article will help you appreciate the military cybersecurity threats in the world, while at the same time give you comfort in our Nation’s capabilities.

The Military Cybersecurity Threats we Face Today

Executive Orders by President Trump

Two sections of President Trump’s Executive Order is found on the Lawfare website address both domestic and foreign affairs concerns:

Section3.  Cybersecurity for the Nation.

(a)  Policy.  It is the policy of the United States to promote an open, interoperable, reliable, and secure Internet that fosters efficiency, innovation, communication, and economic prosperity, and respects privacy, while guarding against disruption, fraud, and theft.


(f)  Department of Defense Warfighting Capabilities and Industrial Base.  The Secretary of Defense . . . shall provide a report to the President, . . . on cybersecurity risks facing the defense industrial base, including its supply chain, and United States military platforms, systems, networks, and capabilities, and recommendations for mitigating these risks, within 90 days of the date of this order.

Another section, as reported by the Washington Post addresses the security issue:

It is the policy of the United States to defend and enhance the security of the Nation’s cyber infrastructure and capabilities. Free and secure use of cyberspace is essential to advancing US. national interests.

Military Cybersecurity Threats

Are the enemies of the U.S. genuine threats, or are they just saber-rattling? We know of at least four significant threats in recent days: North Korea, Russia, China, and Iran. It would be a mistake to underestimate any of them based on the size of the country. The smallest on the list, first mentioned, is ruled by a dictator with questionable sanity.

North Korea – the Ultimate “Saber-Rattlers”

Many in North Korea are on the brink of starvation, but their leader seems determined to make the USA a pile of ash:

The Korean People’s Army will reduce the bases of aggression and provocation to ashes with its invincible Hwasong rockets tipped with nuclear warheads and reliably defend the security of the country and its people’s happiness in case the US and the South Korean puppet forces fire even a single bullet at the territory of the DPRK. – Kim Jong-un

Some Americans brush him aside as dysfunctional or crazy, but our current military leaders say there is a real threat. That threat is real to our South Korean allies in Seoul, with a population of over 25 million souls, and only a short distance from the border of North Korea.

Russia – Hackers of the U.S. Election and An Ally of Middle East Terror Groups

It should not matter how any of us feel about the politics. What matters is that there is unwelcome intrusion into our way of life. Now, to be fair, we know that all countries spy on each other – even allies. However, hacking can be more destructive than bombs. It can ruin companies, reputations, and even economies. Thankfully, our country has many of the brightest minds and the tools to put forth a strong wall of defense. It is encouraging to hear that our leaders are continually upgrading the country’s infrastructure to meet the onslaught.

China – Building Military Bases on the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea

Against International outrage, China has leveraged its considerable industrial genius to build man-made islands. It appears these islands are not for the purpose of attracting world-wide tourists to enjoy the view. They are for military bases; potentially rich for military cybersecurity threats. This is the most populous nation on Earth with 1.371 billion people (as of 2015). Most of Apple’s iPhones are made there, as are many other high-tech devices and appliances. Would it be a surprise to anyone that they have a large cyber attack force? That, combined with the fact that the U.S. owes them over one trillion dollars, our second biggest obligation. We owe more only to Japan!

Iran – World’s Major Supporter of Terrorism

Their nuclear ambitions are equalled by their cyber-terrorism goals. They do not wish us well. Imagine what a military cybersecurity threats they are to our country. Two of these most hostile regimes against America have developed cyber attack groups. Furthermore, North Korea has a group called “Lazarus,” and Iran has one called “Oil Rig.” These cyber terrorists are modeling their attacks to replicate Russian hackers and organized crime activity. I suppose they do this to confuse us all. Apparently, they are good at it.

Who's Responsible For Keeping Your Company Safe From Cyber Attacks?

Who’s Responsible For Keeping Your Company Safe From Cyber Attacks?

In today’s business world, cyber attacks are becoming ever more prevalent and vicious. As information systems and technology grow more sophisticated, so do the hackers who attempt to infiltrate these systems. Evidenced by security breaches within large organizations like Target, Verizon and Sony Pictures, a cyber attack can have devastating effects on a company’s ability to conduct business, maintain the trust of its customers, and keep employee morale high. Curiously, IT decision makers and C-suite executives seem to have different philosophies when it comes to handling and preparing against cyber attacks. The cyber security decision makers in your company are responsible for cyber attacks.

Which cyber security decision makers are responsible for Cyber Attacks?

Which cyber security decision makers are responsible for Cyber Attacks?

Some C-level executives feel the responsibility of cyber security lies solely with the IT department; their security measures, policies and equipment should all be impermeable to any kind of outside attack. On the other hand, IT departments often feel that the C-suite folks should have a larger role in cyber defense.

This discrepancy was verified via a study conducted by BAE Systems. The study confirmed that a third of C-level executives feel it is IT’s sole responsibility to safeguard the company from cyber attacks, while half of the IT decision makers surveyed feel it is the responsibility of senior management. However, these results are puzzling. Is it really one group or the other’s sole responsibility? In short, no.

Team Effort Approach

While it is easy for either side to point fingers, the truth is that cyber security needs both IT decision makers and C-suite executives to give the area their full attention. Without the backing of the CEO, COO or other senior managers, it will be very difficult for IT to implement and enforce cyber security procedures.

Conversely, the IT team needs to communicate early and often with C-level executives regarding new security measures, possible vulnerabilities, and evolving budgets. Cyber security is not cheap, and there is no doubt an organization will need to allocate a significant portion of their budget to implement software and procedures that ward off attacks. However, money is just one factor. Without proper communication between IT decision makers and C-suite executives the challenge is grave. It will be impossible for either side to complete the following:

  1. fully understand the risks and opportunities of cyber security, and
  2. implement security measures in a timely manner.

The time to protect against a cyber attack is not after it has happened. The time is right now. It will take all hands on deck to assure complete security.

Ransomware Is Broadening The Target

Ransomware Is Broadening The Target

Ransomware is a particularly insidious form of cyber terrorism. It relies on extorting a victim for ransom while holding a seized information system – and its data – hostage. In 2016, the FBI warned of the increase of ransomware attacks on companies throughout the U.S. The number of attacks rose an estimated 167 percent from 2014 to 2015;  there were a reported 683 million cyber attacks in 2015. (SonicWall’s Annual Threat Report, 2016).

Ransomware Is Broadening The Target

Ransomware On the Rise

One reason ransomware attacks have risen so rapidly is due to the growing sophistication of malicious code and the proliferation of smart devices. A rise in the Internet-of-Things has made it even easier for attackers to gain access to personal devices like cell phones, smart TVs and more. With one access point, they can then cause a lot of damage, lock up your system and hold your data for ransom.

Minimal Work, Maximum Impact

The ability to affect hundreds or thousands of people at once also makes ransomware an attractive attack strategy. Seizing the data of a state’s DMV can mean possible damage to millions of Americans. This is an easy target for attackers who know that privacy concerns and government are touchy subjects right now; and chances are, the DMV will do whatever it can to quickly resolve the issue. Namely, pay the ransom.

Infrastructures that Need Updating

Additionally, many of the systems that currently house sensitive data were created decades ago. They have been modified as system requirements became more robust, but they are still vulnerable. They were not built to withstand some of the more sophisticated attack methods of today. Also, the larger a network of systems is, the more attractive it becomes for attackers.

Inviting Havoc

Another system vulnerable to ransomware are utilities. It’s hard to forget the attack that left many in the Ukraine without heat in the middle of winter 2015 due to an attack on their power stations. Obviously, this type of attack could be devastating to other countries as well.

Preparing for and guarding against ransomware attacks will become a key cyber security issue throughout 2017 and in the future. It is clear that corporations, governments and individuals need to take bold steps to not become victims of ransomware.

3 Steps to Avoid Common Phishing Attacks!

3 Steps to Avoid Common Phishing Attacks!

Phishing attacks are one of the oldest examples of cyber crime, and they’re still going strong. In 2015, there were approximately 9,500 phishing attacks, and about 10 percent of them resulted in a data breach (2016 Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report). Below are some of the more common types of phishing and three ways to avoid them.

3 Steps to Avoid Common Phishing Attacks!

What is Phishing?

While you might think it has something to do with a musical group, phishing is actually a form of social engineering that aims to trick victims into clicking on a malicious file or URL in an email. The file or link then attempts to steal personal information from the unsuspecting user. Some of the more common types of phishing are:

  • Spear Phishing
  • CEO Fraud
  • Deceptive Phishing
  • Pharming

Dropbox and Google Docs phishing have also become more prevalent in recent years, as the usage of these applications has grown.

Three Ways to Avoid It

Here are three primary ways to avoid becoming the victim of a phishing attack.

1. Pay attention to the details.

The objective of most phishing emails is to make them look as legitimate as possible so you’ll be enticed to click the link or open the file. This can mean that attackers pull official logos, contact information, or even language from the company’s website to sound authentic. However, most hackers apparently don’t know how to spell. Almost always there will be a misspelling or a missing capital letter or something else that doesn’t quite look right. Take a moment to observe these details.

2. Look for a security certificate.

Some scammers will hijack the DNS server of a web site and change the IP addresses to direct you to a mirror website. This is where they can capture your credentials. Look for the HTTPS designation in the upper left hand corner of your URL bar to be assured the site is secure.

3. Look for any ultimatums or deadlines.

Phishers like to imply a sense of urgency to cause you anxiety and force you to act without thinking. This is especially common when they are trying to steal your login credentials to a site like PayPal or eBay. If an organization claims they’ll do something drastic, like close your email account, if you don’t act soon, that’s a big red flag.

Stay Safe Online

By following these tips and staying alert online, you’ll be able to avoid a phishing scheme or other type of cyber attack. The most important thing to remember is that you are in control of the links you click on, and the emails you delete. It’s your account after all.

President Trump's Cyber Security Policy

President Trump’s Cyber Security Policy

One of the key national security issues to emerge during the 2016 U.S. presidential election was cyber security. As our world becomes more interconnected, the issue of online safety and security has never been more important. Throughout the presidential campaign, President Trump discussed the significance of cyber defense and possible U.S. weaknesses. He addressed some of the larger online security breaches in recent years, including eBay, J.P. Morgan Chase and Target. As the new President, President Trump has recently introduced his Cyber Security Policy to further address these issues.

President Trump's Cyber Security Policy

Cyber Security Imperatives

Similar to provisions championed by former President Obama, President Trump has proposed additional changes to the current U.S. Cyber Security Policy. These changes include updating the government’s IT infrastructure. Trump and his advisers believe that using more updated technology will make it easier to protect against cyber attacks from foreign governments and other enemies. The executive order that would enact these provisions also accounts for oversight by both the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. Based on their recommendations, the Trump administration would take steps to better protect U.S. online assets from attack.

The Last Line of Defense

It is obvious that the government considers cyber security a key weakness of U.S. national security. The Trump administration believes it can best protect some of the U.S.’s most vulnerable entities by strengthening cyber security – such as the military, intelligence communities and other civilian organizations. It is easy to see the correlation between national security and cyber security. Trump’s Cyber Security Policy has not yet been signed, presumably in an effort to further flesh out its directives. Initial drafts of the policy raised questions relating to net neutrality and the proper procedure for escalating cyber security issues once they have been identified.

It’s Time for Cyber Security to Take Center Stage

Cyber security will continue to be a hot topic for lawmakers and the general public alike, as our capabilities grow and technology continues to evolve. The President has proven a willingness to draft and enforce sweeping changes when it appears national security is threatened. There is no reason to believe that his approach to cyber security will be any different.

GSISS survey 2017

Cybersecurity Privacy GSISS Report 2017

How organizations are adopting innovative safeguards to manage threats and achieve competitive advantages in a digital era. This report examines the approach that could be taken. The report GSISS is thorough and can aid any organization.

Think broadly about cybersecurity privacy

Most businesses today are fundamentally digital, and software is becoming the backbone of operations, products and services. Organizations are exploring new opportunities to create value and competitive advantages. This is done by integrating cybersecurity and privacy with digital business strategies. Consider the automotive industry. In the past, buying an automobile focused on performance, design, capabilities and price of the vehicle. Today, these factors are being eclipsed by connectivity, in-car digital content and services, and autonomous driving features. A growing range of automobile manufacturers, telecommunications operators, software vendors and consumer electronics firms provide a robust aftermarket in digital services.

Move Away from Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD)

This represents a distinct shift: Many organizations no longer view cybersecurity as a barrier to change or as an IT cost. They understand that cybersecurity solutions can also facilitate business growth, create market advantages and build brand trust.

Cybersecurity Privacy GSISS Report 2017

In large part, this shift in thinking is an outgrowth of the digitization of business. Today, organizations
not only create products but they also deliver complementary (and sometimes complimentary) software-based services for products that extend opportunities for customer engagement and growth.

Cloud-based platforms as an opportunity for cybersecurity privacy

The need to proactively address cybersecurity and privacy risks continues to increase. It’s not the only driver, however: Data privacy and trust have also become critical business requirements as exponentially more consumer and business information is generated and shared.

As a result, forward-thinking organizations are pivoting toward a new model of cybersecurity, one that is agile, capable of acting on analytic inputs and adaptive to evolving risks and threats. At the core of this new approach are solutions like data analytics and real-time monitoring, managed security services, advanced authentication and open-source software.
Cloud-based solutions are not new. What is new is how these solutions are being distributed and focused. Some, such as adoption of open-source software, represent a radical shift in how organizations develop and run on-premises systems.

Technologies used to address threats and add value

Source: PwC, CIO and CSO, The Global State of Information Security® Survey 2017, October 5, 2016

If there is one unifying thread, it’s the cloud. The power and interoperability of cloud-based platforms enables organizations to synthesize a range of synergistic technologies. Businesses can leverage the inherent simplification of cloud architectures to confidently build secure new products and services on the cloud. These architectural advantages represent a breakout opportunity for the integration and improvement of cybersecurity and privacy tools.
