Cyber hygiene is vital to survive today’s attacks: Tehleel Manzoor

SRINAGAR — Peer Tehleel Manzoor, a Cyber Security Researcher said that cyber hygiene is vital to survive today’s online attacks.

He said that there are no shortcuts to fighting human-directed ransomware.

He also said that enterprises must apply security best practices consistently and aggressively to their networks, with the goal of mitigating classes of attacks.

Due to human decision-making, these ransomware attacks can generate multiple, seemingly disparate security product alerts which can easily get lost or not responded to in time, he said.

Hardening against common threats can not only reduce alert volume, but also stop many attackers before they get access to networks, he added.
