Secure Your Network! Secure Your Server!
This is far too common. People don’t realize that if their server or their network is not secure, then they might as well just hand their data over to a hacker on a silver hard drive! (Pun)
Apparently a company in Canada that stores data for large automotive companies has effectively left their server open with minimal authentication and full read/write permissions!
At the end of the day, if your server dies – Replace it. If your network goes down – You can get it back up. If your security settings are too high – Alter them.
If your Data is taken, encrypted or deleted – You’re done. Game over, start again!
