In some ways, traditional security measures have gone out the window in our modern era. We still need to do the little things, though—patching, pentesting, risk/vulnerability assessments, effective communications, awareness training, and budget justifications! Do you have your arms around access control? Is identity the new perimeter? Are you using multi-factor authentication (MFA)? These are all things we should have been doing before the pandemic but in some cases were not. Join the discussion and let us know what else needs to be on this list!
