Data Access Governance Best Practices - Part 1 of 2

Mounting a good defense requires understanding the offense. When it comes to data access, file permissions and systems and network configurations, it consists of the following: 
 

  1.  Common Sense and Concern
  2.  Hard Work (just doing it)
  3.  Knowledge (basic and advanced)
  4.  Consistent Review

Malwarebytes Browser Extension - Why should you consider using it?

Malwarebytes Browser Extension delivers a safer and faster web browsing experience. It blocks malicious websites and filters out unwanted content (resulting in up to three times faster webpage load times). The filtering is not based on definitions, so the extensions can block previously-unidentified fake tech support scams and their tactics.

What will it do for your browsing experience? It prevents pop-ups, browser hijackers, and browser lockers from harassing you and interrupting your surfing. It also blocks clickbait links and fake news content, stops in-browser cryptocurrency miners, and gives other malicious content the boot. All this while relying on threat behavior patterns rather than on researchers who have to track down, identify the malware, and add it to a database of known threats. (We still need those researchers to make our products better. This is just a different, faster method.)
