This first TCE episode of 2022 (and first video - on Spotify) includes a few gentle and some not-so-gentle reminders on cybersecurity best practices and practices for better cyber hygiene. I start with a few cybersecurity controls for businesses to buckle down on this year, including identifying assets, vetting vulnerabilities, and pursuing more potent password policies. Then, I actually persist on the password point with some pontification about our predilection for problematic passwords and propose pointers for a more polished password posture.
While there’s probably nothing new in this episode, I hope it serves as a gentle nudge to promote better cyber hygiene habits – not just resolutions for 2022, but positive habits to develop for all-time toward a more cyber secure you! I also evangelize for a new CISA resource - the Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog.
