How to Perform a Cybersecurity Risk Assessment

A single data breach can cost millions of dollars in lost revenue, damage your reputation, and result in regulatory fines. Preventing these breaches requires a cycle of continuous improvements, identifying weaknesses in the organization’s security structure and then taking action to address them. Regular cybersecurity risk assessments are the first step in that process.

What is a Red Team Exercise and Why Is It Important? | SimSpace

An actual cyber attack shouldn't be the first time your team responds to a cybersecurity incident. Just like a firefighter wouldn't run into a burning building without prior training and experience, cybersecurity professionals need preparation and practice before responding to real-world threats. That’s where red team exercises shine. Red team exercises are simulated attacks designed to challenge and test an organization's defenses, incident response capabilities, preparedness, and overall resilience. The results yielded can help organizations identify and fix vulnerabilities in their security systems, enabling better prevention, detection, and response to cyberattacks.

What is a Firewall?

I am continuing my series of blogs that spends time discussing the components of the network and network security stack. Many/most organizations will have the basic components of the stack, and as we move towards other tools and solutions that fit further out on the edge of the stack, some may fall off. However, that doesn’t mean it will remain that way. As we all know, technology, networking, security and threats constantly evolves.

Red Team vs. Blue Team: Cybersecurity Teaming Exercises Explained

As security teams face off against attackers, they need to know that their technical security controls and detection rules work as intended. To validate their processes and technologies, cybersecurity teams engage in penetration testing, a type of authorized simulated attack against the company’s systems that evaluate a security program’s effectiveness.

5 Key Takeaways from RSA 2023

RSA 2023 is officially in the books, and it was an excellent event for SimSpace. In the picture above, you can see that we had great weather, and yes, I took that picture with my phone. Attendance at RSA was reported to be over 40,000 people, 600 vendors, and 500 press and analysts. SimSpace and our booth partners Cymulate and Cyconito saw great booth traffic and had a very busy week. As I look back on the week, I have five key observations:
