Lazarus Alliance ups the ante with proactive cyber security weapons in the corporate arsenal to fight cybercrime, corporate fraud, espionage and criminal cyber-misconduct.
The egregious revelations following this security breach is that the Office of Personnel Management did not have even entry-level cyber security controls in place as reported on June 4, 2015 by NBC affiliate KPNX 12 News and many other outlets is proof that it's time for the U.S. to take strong action to harden its technological infrastructure with proactive measures instead of the reactive posture demonstrated today.
KPNX went on to report that fundamental controls missing that facilitated this massive security breach affecting millions across the federal space were identified as a lack of data encryption, multifactor authentication and modern endpoint computing platforms all of which are critical in preventing cyber breaches and criminal misconduct.
Michael Peters, CEO of Lazarus Alliance said, “Proactive cyber security measures taken through competent IT risk, audit & compliance and governance assessments coupled with proven assessment tools like the IT Audit Machine are all known to prevent about 96% of all breach potential.”
"As long as public and private organizations remain reactive instead of proactive in their approach to cyber security, they will continue to fail the constituents they work to protect. This federal cyber data breach is a painful reminder that not enough is being done even at minimal levels," said Peters.
Cyber-crime prevention is of paramount concern to the federal government and organizations of all sizes, all industries and in all parts of the world. Lazarus Alliance put its extensive experience in cybercrime and fraud prevention in the governance, risk and compliance (GRC) spaces to work for the federal and global business community.
“Survey after survey shows that simple and intermediate controls prevent espionage and cyber-crime and yet breach reports are escalating. These criminal acts could have been prevented through a proactive cyber security plan,” continued Peters.
Lazarus Alliance’s primary purpose is to help organizations attain, maintain, and demonstrate compliance and information security excellence, in any jurisdiction. Lazarus Alliance specializes in IT security, risk, privacy, governance, cyberspace law and compliance leadership solutions and is fully dedicated to global success in these disciplines.
