If cybersecurity concerns can ever be elevated, 2020 and 2021 certainly accomplished that for sure. You can swing a cat without seeing a headline these days on ransomware, phishing, or some other fraudulent, online activity occurring -- which is especially concerning in the financial services sector.
No time is ever more active than the holidays, so we invited Think|Stack CTO Zach Hill on the show to share five things every organization should be doing to mitigate risk in this area.
Before discussed those five things, Zach addressed the recent Log4j vulnerability threat that occurred last week and what it means to credit unions.
According to CBS news, Log4j is a programming code written in Java computer language and created by volunteers within the Apache Software Foundation to run across a handful of platforms: Apple's macOS, Windows and Linux. The free, open-source software creates a built-in "log" or record of activity — like a diary — that software developers can use to troubleshoot problems or track data within their programs. Its and utility and the fact that it is free have spread the "logging library" to all corners of the internet.
Check it out and let us know your thoughts. And be sure to watch the entire episode below for all the details.
