Doh!!! The 10 Most Overlooked Security Tasks

Here's a list of gotchas that often slip past overburdened security pros.
2 of 11

Not enabling DMARC to fight phishing attacks
Security pros need to convince email/messaging system managers to enable DMARC policies in their corporate email to aid in the fight against phishing attacks. DMARC stands for Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance and is one of the best-known ways to reject spoofed emails. Security pros looking for a more efficient way to manage DMARC now use tools such as Agari or ValiMail. Companies can opt to simply warn users that they have received a spoofed message or choose to block these likely malicious messages.

Re: Interesting
Understandably, many corporations sense crushed with the burden of overlaying all components of IT safety. So what are the safety responsibilities that need to be prioritized with the aid of companies to make certain that they may be secure? Assignment Writer UK

One more to consider

This is a strong list that includes technical controls, as well as human actions, to help reduce the attack surface. #11 would be seeking out ongoing professional development and practice opportunities in interactive environments. The traditional security trainings that exist at industry conferences or week-long seminars are no longer enough to prepare our cyber pros. Practicing defensive and offensive techniques – in real-world scenarios with your own tools and team members – is key to keeping yourself sharp and up to date on emerging threats.
