Forbs has a great article on cybersecurity and business: are we doing enough?

I saw this article on Forbs. It covers cybersecurity in a different light, the business light. The Fight For Cybersecurity: How Can Companies Minimize Risk Against Emerging Threats? is the name of the article, and it raises a great question that I think needs to be discussed.

The article emphasizesthat cybersecurity needs to start at the top of the company and work its way down to each and every individual that works at this company. It can’t just be at the IT department, and I agree.

Here at the Jared Rimer Network, I don’t have employees here, however, when I get new customers, I always talk to them about security and how they can assist keeping this network as secure as possible. While I do my part to make sure I have customers who do not violate any types of terms set forth, I tell them that things here must be linked if possible, and that we aren’t a backup storage facility.

In no way am I able to enforce this, but I can assist on what practices should be followed, and the control panel has bolstered security to eliminate those weak, easy to guess passwords like password, monkey123, and word based passwords. The minimum password length is not known, but there is a specific score on the meeter before it’ll except a password. It makes the customer think, even if they use a memorable password.

Passwords are only the beginning, and Phishing is also talked about in this article. It can’t be stressed enough that clicking links in email is the way to go today, but to go to your browser and type what you want.

I recently got a message through my IP unblock request form with an interesting looking forwarder. For your protection, the link which appears twice as these people fill out both sections of the form, will not be linked in this post. It isn’t melicious, but the services offered are not worth anybody’s time.

The URL leads to a company called Monkey Digital, and the forms like this one point to their services like backlinks, search engine optimization services, and other tactics we need to do on our own by putting the terms and other copyright notices in our web sites themselves.

The Braille Transcription site I’ve created talking about Braille2000 has taken the time to create these keywords, and through a program, it builds the code I can copy and paste in to my web site without having to even remember how it goes. Its quite complex, and it works.

Why am I going to pay a company something that I can do for free? I also got an email saying that they had a report for me and how my keywords don’t match the travel industry. I got this report and some of the links were redirected permanently, and one, contact.htm doesn’t exist on my web site! Its in this report by this legit person who sent it to one of my other domains, but it is irrelevant! I’ve got keywords in place and I know my links work. I tested the few that said they didn’t work and it was pointing where it needed to go.

I’m happy for people who want to report links to me that don’t work, I need that! But please don’t waste my time with 35 pages of a report when most of it is worthless! I don’t have the time to read a PDF file of a report and me checking the links to find they work. I didn’t go through the whole report, and I found it waste of time. If you’re going to send me a report on my sites, please look at it, understand what I’m trying to do, instead of filling out forms saying I’m not targeting traveling people.

The site in question was my white cane travel site. It works just fine. The security on the site is as good as its going to be. I’m the sole owner of the domain(s) being talked about here, where I’ve made sure I’m conforming to the best I understand. Spam like the one sample I’ve sent above is just one aspect a business has to deal with. Emails like the one I described above in the prior paragraph also is a part of our business. It all goes hand in hand, and we all need to work together with making sure we’re as secure as possible.

Thoughts on the forbs article or any aspect of this post? Please get in touch, and I look forward in hearing from you!
