We get a lot of questions about where to start when it comes to Cybersecurity, “how can we ensure our environment has mitigated as much risk as possible”. My answer is TAKE THE FIRST STEP!

Your organization should have dark web monitoring in place. This allows your company to out if any credentials have been exposed to the dark web via Data breaches, hackers, bad actors, inside threats, ID theft forums.

After your organization has gone through the cleanup process ensuring none of the passwords that have been exposed are currently being used in your environment or tied to any third-party sites “Vendors, Banking, or personal accounts. You can move on to the next step, which depending on where your organization is at this could be a security awareness training or multi-factor authentication or “Risk Assessment”.

All are essential in today’s environment, Multi factor authentication can be implemented by numerous providers.

· Microsoft authenticator

· Google Authenticator


· Authy

Just to name a few. MFA is easy to set up, Office 365 uses Microsoft authenticator because Microsoft likes Microsoft “who knew?”.
