A data breach could take over 100 days to be spotted. An additional 60 days may be needed to recover from it. However, you can recover from a breach within 30 days with a recovery plan, saving you resources. Your recovery team’s swift reaction to any signs of a data breach will help you recover as soon as possible.

When it comes to cybersecurity, one of the most important things you can do is test your system for vulnerabilities. Cybersecurity testing ensures you have all the necessary security measures in place and that they are functioning correctly. There are many ways to test the security of a system. Some are more thorough than others, and some take longer to complete.
Despite the numerous messaging apps available, email remains the most used method of formal communication. This is because email is still associated with professionalism. However, as emails are preferred among businesses, this also makes them an ideal target for cybercriminals.
Most data breaches occur for an economic reason—the attacker hopes to profit from the information they gain access to. Emails contain a lot of personal information already and can also be used to access other vital systems. This makes them an ideal entry point for hackers with varying motives.
Cybersecurity is a constant battle as there are always new threats to consider and safeguard against. With companies and individuals storing an incredible amount of personal and business data on their devices, keeping this information protected requires rigid security practices.
However, one of the most challenging cyber threats to prevent is zero-click attacks. These are especially dangerous because, unlike more common cyberattacks, a victim’s devices can be compromised without them ever knowing. So, what can be done?
Here, we explore how to recognise these malicious malware attacks while offering tips that help prevent your devices from being exploited.
Effective cybersecurity relies on your team being alerted to potential issues within your systems and networks. However, the sheer number of alerts generated by improperly configured cybersecurity technology and frameworks causes analysts to develop alert fatigue, as countless false positives and minor issues lead to significant disruption and distraction.
With so many potential threats and a limited number of resources, it can be difficult to prioritise which alerts to investigate. As a result, your team may become overwhelmed and start to ignore or dismiss potentially serious threats. In addition, constantly responding to false positives can take valuable time away from other tasks, such as investigating potential incidents. So, what can we do to resolve the challenging problem of alert fatigue?
We often hear about unwanted cyber interventions harming operations. You might think it’s not relevant to the maritime industry – you’d be wrong.
Not immune from cybersecurity incidents, a growing number of attackers are focusing their activity on the marine and offshore sector. That includes cargo ships and cruise liners. Both are attractive targets due to high-value assets and likely vulnerabilities.
Whilst the picture might seem alarming, specialist guidance and procedures exist to help you mitigate your risk, securing vessels from harmful attacks. Created by cybersecurity specialist Nettitude, and used by Lloyds Register, the LR Cybersecurity ShipRight  certification is one such example.
