Re-secure the network

Before putting any server, computer or device back online, check, double-check and triple-check. All compromised or potentially compromised passwords should be changed.

Tip: New passwords should incorporate best practices for strength and security. Check for configuration errors, download and install the latest security patches. Update network hardware security settings. Don’t forget the human factor. Educate all employees on how to play an active role in maintaining network security.

We have long since passed an era when 100 percent prevention of security breaches was even remotely possible, especially when it only takes a single, seemingly harmless activity — such as an employee clicking a link, using an insecure Wi-Fi connection, or downloading a corrupted software update — to unleash a full-scale infection.

This, however, doesn’t mean your enterprise is helpless and vulnerable. On the contrary, you can dramatically improve your ability to avoid disaster and mitigate damage if you take the right actions. In this slideshow, Seculert outlines five critical steps for handling a security breach.
