A KRACK in Your Cybersecurity
So if KRACK has never been used, then what’s all the fuss about? Amidst some fearbaiting headlines, it does serve as a good reminder to always stay vigilant about security. As we’ve previously said, an “it has always worked, why fix it” mentality is not compatible with your security needs. You should patch your personal devices as soon as the updates become available to stay as safe as possible. Any security you use on top of WPA2 would still work, so secure encryption systems like HTTPS are very important to maintain. And you should always use MFA (multi factor authentication) to stop hackers if they get access to your password.
For your business, you should make sure your IT provider installs patches in a timely fashion. Here at Domain, we will prioritize the installation of these patches for our clients as they become available. Our Domain Tech Academy can work with your smart devices and personal computers to ensure they are set up properly with the latest security.

To effectively create assessments for third-party vendors, let’s break “risk” down.
