Gmail’s encrypted email warning, what’s missing?

Gmail’s encrypted email warning is coming for emails that are sent and received through unsecured connections.  Earlier this month, Google released their Safer Email Transparency report, which reveals the strides made in email encryption between 2013 and 2015.  It’s very important to note that these strides specifically relate to the security of email data while it’s in transit between the sender and the recipient and not while it’s at rest in a user’s inbox or sent items…which is arguably where the data is at the highest risk of attack.

For a long time, it’s been recognised that email communication is unsecure and Google’s report uses the popular analogy that compares sending an email to sending a postcard in that the data is open to attack while it’s in transit; just think of a postman being able to read what’s written on a postcard.  Traditionally, like many communications, emails have been … Read more

Digital Defender: 5 Keys to Securing Your Company’s Firewall

Firewalls are the first line of security for your company network. Firewalls monitor and filter incoming and outgoing traffic.

Missing or interrupted firewall services could mean breaches, viruses, and more. To ensure the safety of your infrastructure, it’s important to install and maintain your firewalls. Here are five tips for effective firewall protection.

1. Tweak the Settings

Most firewall software can be configured with different settings or options to best meet your needs.

For instance, you can schedule software uptimes to run at a specific time to minimize any inconvenience, though the computer it’s installed to has to be turned on.

You can also restrict specific internal programs from accessing the internet, or outside sources from accessing your network or devices like printers. Whether certain sources can accept or send data, or both, is up to you.

2. Keep Settings Consistent

Users on your business network may be accessing the … Read more
