Patching Unveiled: A Swift Dance of Defense
But here’s the twist – a strategic reprieve. The timeframe for patching non-critical vulnerabilities in workstations, non-internet-facing servers, and devices now extends to a month. Why? Acknowledging the resource constraints faced by many organisations. Prioritise ruthlessly, patch swiftly for critical issues, and strategically plan for the rest. It’s a dance of balance in the cybersecurity tango.
MFA: Your Digital Sentry Redefined
The MFA embrace extends further. Now, organisations must provide phishing-resistant MFA options for customer authentication on online portals storing sensitive data. It’s not just about safeguarding your organisation; it’s about fortifying trust in your online services.
Beyond the Headlines: Tightening the Bolts
Application control whitelisting steps into the limelight, allowing only the approved applications to enter, curbing unauthorised software execution. And administrative privilege lockdown is the crown jewel – stricter controls and policies for managing these powerful permissions.
