Shoring Up Your Network And Security Policies: Least Privilege Models
Why do so many businesses allow unfettered access to their networks? You’d be shocked by how often it happens. The truth is: your employees don’t need unrestricted access to all parts of our business. This is why the Principle of Least Privilege (POLP) is one of the most important, if overlooked, aspects of a data security plan.

Smoke And Mirrors: Do AI And Machine Learning Make A Difference In Cybersecurity?4/27/2020
Over the last several years, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) has maintained consistent growth among businesses. During our 2017 survey of IT decision makers in the United States and Japan, we discovered that approximately 74% of businesses in both regions were already using some form of AI or ML to protect their organizations from cyber threats. When we checked in with both regions at the end of 2018, 73% of respondents we surveyed reported they planned to use even more AI/ML tools in the following year. For this report, we surveyed 800 IT professionals with cybersecurity decision- making power across the US, UK, Japan, and Australia/New Zealand regions at the end of 2019, and discovered that 96% of respondents now use AI/ML tools in their cybersecurity programs.

Networking refers to the range of hardware, software, processes, regulations, and protocols that make up computer and other networks. A network is a telecommunications system that allows connected devices to exchange data via cables or wirelessly (Wi-Fi). Networks provide shared access to systems, services, applications, and devices such as the World Wide Web, servers, printers, storage devices, email, messaging, and many more.
Security on networks is controlled by a network administrator through a set of provisions and policies that prevent unauthorized access to the network and network-accessible resources. Access to secured networks requires authentication usually via username and password (one-factor authentication), but can be augmented to include additional steps based on something a user 'has' such as generating a code via a security token, card, or mobile phone (two-factor authentication), and further augmented to include something a user 'is' such as a retinal or fingerprint scan. Firewalls enforce access policies on the network and anti-virus software or intrusion prevention systems (IPS) help to detect and inhibit malware and other potential threats.
Networks can be connected by electrical cable, radio waves, and optical fiber which are defined as layers 1 (physical layer) and 2 (data link layer) in the OSI model. Types of wired technologies include twisted pair wire, coaxial cable, ITU-T G.hn, and optical fiber. Wireless technologies include terrestrial microwave, satellite, cellular and PCS, radio and spread spectrum, and infrared. The basic hardware components of a network include network interface controllers (NIC), repeaters and hubs, network bridges, network switches, routers, and firewalls.
Ethernet is the most widely-adopted and used family of communications media used in local area networks (LAN), encompassing both wired and wireless network communications. IEEE 802 defines the standards and protocols that enable networked device communications. Networks can be classified by physical capacity or purpose such as personal area networks (PAN), local area network (LAN), storage area network (SAN), wide area network (WAN), virtual private network (VPN), and others.
