What is a Cyber Attack?

A cyber attack is an unauthorized attempt to access a computer device, computer system, or an IT network.  The goal of a cyber attack is to disrupt, disable, alter, or take control of the system. In many cases, the data within these systems are stolen, held for ransom, or even deleted.

The most common types of cyber attacks include denial-of-service (DoS), an attack that uses up the resources of a system to the extent that it cannot respond to genuine server requests any longer. On the other hand, phishing sends emails from seemingly legitimate and trusted sources with the intent to collect sensitive information from the recipient. There is an alarming prevalence of ransomware that targets both large and small companies. The most recent, highly publicized cases involved a major pipeline, meat supplier, hospitals, and an IT software company that services over 800 to 1,500 businesses globally.

According to NBC News, ransomware costs in 2020 amounted to approximately $1.4 billion in America alone.

What is Zero Trust?

"Never trust, always verify."

The best form of protection is prevention. Zero Trust assumes nothing behind a corporate firewall is safe until verified, regardless of the source. Although these constraints may seem drastic, today's workforce reliance on computer networks and the massive repercussions of data breach warrants diligent security as the norm to protect people and their devices.

How does it work?

1. Verify Explicitly

Always authenticate user identity, location, device health, service or workload, data classification, and anomalies.

2. Use Least Privileged Access

Limit user access to that which is only required for their title or position. Just-Enough-Access (JEA) keeps the right data in the right hands. 

3. Assume Breach

Limit the ability for hacks to spread laterally by segmenting access by network, user, devices, and application, with verification that each session is encrypted.
