How to manage security risks for your CMS
There’s an old maxim, which features throughout history and Hollywood, that says you should keep your friends close and your enemies closer. This holds true when it comes to securing your content management systems because it’s often the threat from within—from those who abuse authorized access to a CMS—that poses the greatest risk.
David Habib, Chief Information Officer at Brightspot, explores the key issues around CMS security in our latest webinar, "How to Manage Security Risks for Your CMS." Detailing the dangers, he looks at the potential impact from defacement, denial of service and exfiltration attacks and talks through the most effective strategies to prevent them.
The biggest threat that we’re facing with CMS security is actually the backdoor—the authorized user. So, the account that’s been created so that I can go in and do my job is the door we need to worry about defending. We want to make sure that we’re not letting people take advantage of the authorized use of our CMS, or to ride on top of that authorized use.
He also looks at how organizations can respond quickly and effectively to breaches and mitigate the impact they have on their organization. In addition, he highlights the importance of making sure employees are well-trained and informed so they can spot, report and stop problems in the first place.
Your CMS is at the heart of how you communicate with both internal and external audiences. It’s a guardian of your company’s culture and brand.
