The Cybersecurity Maturity Model (CMM) was developed by Cisco in the mid 90’s as a way to measure the maturity of the entire network perimeter. The idea behind this is that security professionals need to be able to assess the risk of an attack before they attempt it, and in doing so be able to prevent it. When training for the CCNA Security Exam one of the most important topics to cover is what to look for when evaluating an attack. While some attacks may seem obvious (like injecting a virus into a computer) others have been developed for years to specifically attack companies’ computer networks using a variety of means.Kindly visit Columbia CMMC Training Courses to find more information.
For instance, consider the “Knock-IT” technique. This method requires finding a way into a company’s network via a vulnerability, then using automated scanning and software to locate and disable all security measures that might affect the vulnerability, and finally exploiting the weakness to gain access to sensitive information. While most security professionals will have seen this technique used in the movies, the reality is that there are no guarantees that an attacker will succeed in gaining access if the company implements proper cyber security measures before they even try. A certification test, therefore, helps companies determine whether or not their cyber security program is well-designed to counter such a vulnerability.
Another area of growing sophistication within corporate information security is mobile computing. iPhones, Android tablets, and even smart phones with digital cameras have made it possible for even the smallest teams to gather and share data from remote locations. While corporate information technology departments were once concerned with storing data on traditional PC servers, these devices are quickly being replaced by mobile computing, which allows people to share information through various mediums while traveling, from cellular carriers to electronic mailing systems. Because of the importance of keeping corporate data safe, companies need to develop and follow best practices to protect themselves from the latest and greatest cyber criminals, in order to ensure that they’re prepared to handle any potential issues when they arise.
