risks of ransomware and cyber
espionage for their customers.
The U.S. Cybersecurity &
Infrastructure Security Agency
(CISA) posted information on
their website for these organizations
in terms of mitigations and
hardening guidance for MSPs.
They recommend that MSPs
make sure that log information
is preserved, aggregated, and
correlated to maximize detections
capabilities along with
applying the principle of least
privilege to customer environments.
The
new integration is now available to all Google workspace
customers using Glass Enterprise Editon 2.
directly from Glass because of
this new update.
" Meet on Glass is one of the
ways we're bringing powerful
new video conferencing
experiences to customers
around the world, regardless
of the devices they're using to
connect and collaborate with
their teams, " says Dave Citron,
Director, Project Management,
Google Workspace, in a blog
post. " When combined with
our Google meet hardware and
peripherals, the possibilities for
real-time connection and problem
solving are even greater. "
This new development
comes as part of a larger effort
by Google to create more tools
to allow workers to carry out
their task remotely. This type of
technology can boost efficiency
and save an organization
money along with preventing
large groups of people to have
to congregate to solve a complex
problem.
This will also help people
with less technical skills have
a more expanded network
of people they can reach out
to and receive real-time help
as they can look at a piece of
equipment and perform a fix

while receiving assistance from
a technician in another country.
This is just one of many ways
the tech community is looking
to expand the use of videoconferencing
to the future of work.

CISA Details Best
Ways to Mitigate and
Harden MSP Networks
CYBER ATTACKERS have increasingly
gone after managed
service providers (MSPs), which
provide remote management
of customer IT and end-user
systems, which are mostly used
my small and mid-sized businesses
for IT, data storage, and
various process support.
MSPs usually allow customers
to scale and support network
environments at a reduced cost
compared with the customers
managing this on their own.
Because the MSPs have access
to their customer's network, it
makes them more of a target for
cyberattacks.
When hackers breach
networks of MSPs, it can have
a global negative impact with
The principle of least privilege
is the idea that users, programs,
and processes should only have
the bare minimum privileges
necessary for them to function.
CISA also recommends
the implementation of robust
network and host-based
monitoring solutions along
with working with customers to
make sure hosted infrastructure
is monitored and maintained.
They also recommend managing
customer data backups in
relation to business value and
operation needs, test recovery
plans, and reviewing of data
backup logs.
CISA also provided similar
recommendations for small and
mid-sized businesses which
included managing supply
chain risks related to network
security expectations, and legal
and procurement groups.
They strongly suggest implementing
strong operations controls
by creating a baseline for
system and network behavior
to detect future anomalies, implementing
system log files into
customer intrusion detection
and security monitoring systems,
and requiring multi-factor
authentication (MFA).
Small and mid-sized businesses
should also manage
architecture risks by reviewing
and verifying all connections
between systems and using a
virtual private network (VPN), to
connect to MSP infrastructure.
They should also manage
accounting, authorization,
and authentications risks by
employing the safest practices
for password and permission
management, making sure MSP
accounts are not assigned to
administrator groups, and verifying
service provider accounts
are being used for appropriate
purposes.
