I'm Erka Koivunen, a Finnish cybersecurity expert. I'm here to answer your questions about #CyberSecMonth, creating a culture of security and what you, your boss, and your boss' boss need to know about being hacked.
A BIG thank you for all for posting your questions and comments!
We all (Erka = ekoivune, Cosmin and Vangelis = ECSM_ENISA) had a great time answering! We will now officially close the AMA but don't be surprised to find us continue commenting. You can reach us on Twitter: @ekoivune and @enisa_eu.
Before joining F-Secure, I worked for the Finnish government for ten years on cyber security. And I'm back for my second IAmA. I'll be online from 8 AM EDT / 13:00 UTC / 16:00 Helsinki/Athens time to start answering your questions.
October is #CyberSecMonth and it just happens to being happening before an election in America where the "Cyber" is playing an unprecedented role and everyone seems to be getting hacked. cybersecuritymonth.eu
The goal of the month is "raise awareness of cyber security threats, promote cyber security among citizens and provide up to date security information, through education and sharing of good practices." In other words, it's about not getting hacked.
But -- as everyone knows -- there are only two kinds of big companies: those that have been hacked and those that don't know it yet. I'm here to answer your questions about how to keep hackers out -- even when they get in. business.f-secure.com/how-to-keep-hackers-out-even-when-they-get-in. Or I'll do my best to answer anything else you're wondering about advanced threats, ransomware and how involved governments get in keeping businesses secure.
I'll also be joined by Cosmin Ciobanu from the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security, the organization behind #CyberSecMonth in Europe, who can provide additional insight from his experience responding to threats or attacks such as compromised hosts, malware, vulnerabilities or other type of similar incidents across the continent.
