How Microsoft Solutions Can Help Identify Your Leaked Credentials

How Microsoft Solutions Can Help Identify Your Leaked Credentials

Hackers are dedicated to getting into and compromising your systems. They can use sophisticated coding techniques to get around or break through your security defenses. Unfortunately, many times that type of extensive effort isn’t necessary because organizations make it easy for hackers to steal credentials by failing to have adequate defenses in place.

Nearly two out of every three confirmed data breaches involve weak, default, or stolen passwords.1 In total, according to Microsoft, tens of millions of credentials are exposed every month and are added to growing lists on the dark web. These stolen user IDs and passwords are extremely valuable to cyber thieves since three of every four users re-use credentials across multiple sites and continue to use the same credentials for years.2

SQL 2000: Out of Date But It's Not Too Late

SQL 2000: Out of Date But It's Not Too Late

If you’re still running SQL 2000 or SQL 2005 in your environment, you probably already know about the significant support costs.

To top it off, the business tells you that the vendor won’t provide support on the new platforms or your host will charge a considerable fee to allow you to run the outdated versions of SQL on their servers.

The Path to GDPR Compliance

The Path to GDPR Compliance

There are big changes coming for organizations that conduct business in, or store and collect data tied to citizens of the European Union (EU). From data protection and breach reporting to governance documentation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) calls for businesses in any location that hold data on Europeans to be more efficient and accountable with their IT operations – or face significant penalties.

With May 25th, 2018 as the proposed GDPR enforcement date, you have just a few months to comply with the new (and slightly confusing) GDPR laws. Though that may seem far away, the date will come quick, as will the scrutiny into your data practices.

But the path to compliance doesn’t need to be difficult. At Interlink, through our cloud and on-premises solutions, we’ve identified a path forward.
