RealClearLife, an online "guide to a life well lived," recently published an article called "25 Tips from Cybersecurity Experts on Protecting Your Data." The tips pull from experts from a wide range of backgrounds, including President George W Bush's White House CIO Theresa Payton and Kelser Vice President of Professional Services Matt Kozloski. Matt's quote points to one of our favorite tools: Cisco Umbrella, formerly known as OpenDNS:
Use a Cloud Security Program (Like Cisco Umbrella)
“This technology is a powerful smart filter that monitors all traffic going over your network for malicious activity. It’s very much set it and forget it — once it’s up and running, you won’t know it’s there until you see that it blocked you from going to a fraudulent website. It can be set up in less than five minutes by changing one setting on your wireless gateway. This is a very effective tool for blocking spoof sites — which may look very realistically like your bank or your email provider, and are a common way that people inadvertently give up their data. The service is primarily used by businesses, but in its most basic form, individuals can use it for free.”
