Throughout October, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity. Over the course of the month, these security groups encourage people and organizations to do their part in protecting cyberspace, encourage personal accountability, and take proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity.
In celebration of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we want to know what your cybersecurity stack looks like!
We surveyed the Bitwarden community and the results include their favorite applications across the stack.
The basic principles behind a strong stack include:
Perimeter Security - Provides your network perimeter security
Endpoint Protection - Protects employee computers
Information Security - Protects computer files and other information
Authentication - Ensures you are who you are when accessing data
Backup and Recovery - Quickly get back up and running after a disaster or breach
Network Monitoring - Continuously monitors for network infrastructure threats
It’s always a good time to take a look at how you can better protect your online information and create a more secure online presence. Cybersecurity Awareness Month reminds us to take advantage of security resources and software to keep us safe online.
In addition to the results of the survey, here are a few free and secure cybersecurity resources from Bitwarden:
