1. Keep Screen Sharing Constantly Updated
You may have noticed that screen-sharing software is updated all the time. Many people need to see this. But screen-sharing software is essential to a company's IT and security strategy—especially for those who work remotely. The higher the version of the screen-sharing software, the more risks you will face; If you know that someone is accessing your system or files, you need to take steps to avoid these risks and effects. Screen-sharing software is the most vulnerable part of all network security equipment.
2. Monitor Known Vulnerabilities and Fix Them
Once you have determined your network security posture, you must ensure that available systems and applications are free of vulnerabilities before they can be remediated. You can use some free vulnerability detection programs to monitor your network for specific vulnerabilities (such as HTTP ports, SSH or VPN connections, etc.). Remember that this is potentially a severe attack, and you may not discover any new vulnerabilities in time. By patching known vulnerabilities, you can keep your organization safe from attack. To prevent known attackers from using this vulnerability for malicious activities, such as DDoS attacks, you should ensure that it is disabled.
3. Regular Security Updates to the System
Your system needs security updates to prevent cybercriminals from exploiting these vulnerabilities. Install the latest security updates on your devices to ensure your operating system and applications are always running the latest versions.
4. Check for Unused Security Patches or Patch Upgrades
Check your system for new security patches or fixes for known vulnerabilities. You can check some major suppliers' websites to ensure they have the latest versions of their products. If there are patch updates for specific operating systems, please notify the IT team and work with them to update.
5. Use Correct Hardware for Meetings
