Small and Medium Organizations: Enable Security Software
Cyber threat actors use malware to compromise an organization’s networks. To protect against malware, your organization should use security software solutions.
What is malware and how can I protect my organization?
Malware is malicious software designed to infiltrate or damage a computer system. Your organization should protect itself against the threat posed by known malware (i.e. malware that security researchers already know about and that security software can defend against). Focusing on known malware is relatively easy; your organization can enable and securely configure anti-virus and anti-malware solutions, including any software firewalls, on all information systems and assets.
As with all software, your organization should configure these solutions for automatic updates and scans.
Recommendations for your organization:
- Enable anti-malware solutions
- Activate software firewalls
