9 Awesome Resources to Sharpen Your Security Skills

National Cyber Security Awareness Month spans October - even though we know all too well that security awareness is more than a monthlong educational campaign, it's a lifestyle.

That said, few would dispute that driving attention for 31 days of the calendar year toward the importance of safe and secure computing is a worthwhile endeavor, and that's what has kept the campaign, shortened to NCSAM - a partnership between the National Cyber Security Alliance and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security - alive and well since 2004

While the predominance of content you'll see is geared toward improving the security aptitude of the average online user, whether they be at home or in the office, here at Trustwave we want to make sure IT and security professionals are getting access to all they need to grow their competencies and craft.

So here are seven free creative and instructive resources that you can turn to expand your expertise around fighting cybercrime, protecting data and reducing your risk. Because if you're not aware, nobody will be.

1) Gartner Report - EDR: Benefits, Concerns and Issues

Endpoints are where the fight against malicious hackers typically starts, as the computers and other devices that dot your perimeter are a favorite first target of your adversaries. But thanks to technologies like endpoint detection and response (EDR), the fight can end at the endpoint too. This new report from analyst firm Gartner spells out what to consider when choosing an EDR solution amid a growing marketplace

2) The Complete Guide to Building a Security Culture

Training, education and policies may be strong in your organization, but without a culture in which security is fundamental to everything that everyone does, gains can be easily lost. At 25 pages and spread across six chapters, this e-book will amplify your efforts toward making security a collective effort that everybody wants to own and view not as a burden but a best practice.

3) The Ultimate Reference Guide to Cybersecurity Threats

An assortment of cyberthreats is ready to greet you around every corner. And while some may be painstakingly familiar to you, each one is unique and must be addressed in distinct ways. This slickly designed and skimmable e-book comes to the rescue with a brass-tacks breakdown of the top 12 digital dangers that today's businesses face (from phishing to the supply chain) and how you can address each of them internally - and when you need to call in the outside experts to lend a hand.

4) 10 Principles of Database Security Design

The security of databases is more front and center than ever before because they are the richest target. Some companies, however, may not be sure where to start and how far to go. This newly refreshed white paper is a starter's guide filled with clear and practical guidance for hardening your databases.

5) IoT Cybersecurity Readiness Report

As businesses rush to implement IoT technologies to gain competitive advantage, security best practices are falling to the wayside. This report takes an in-depth look at the disparity between IoT adoption and cybersecurity readiness, and includes practical takeaways for both adopters and manufacturers.

6) The Hassle-Free Guide to Dominating Your Next Security Incident

Not every company has a fully grown incident readiness and response (IR) process and program in place. This handbook lays the groundwork for why mature IR is so important and then delivers a step-by-step guide for prepping for and facing up against a wide range of security incidents.

7) 3 Pillars for Successfully Addressing GDPR

When historians look back on cybersecurity, one of the defining moments surely will be when the European Union's General Data Protection Act took effect in May.
