Just as businesses have been advised to invest in custom software instead of the general software; it’s also important that we help them see the need to protect it from bugs and external influences. 

According to study, no software is free from vulnerabilities, but with the right measures, it can be protected from external influences. 

As a company (Meghee), it’s our goal to educate individuals and organizations on the need to protect their applications in computer security, a vulnerability that can be exploited by a threat actor, such as an attacker to perform unpermitted action within a computer system. 

To perform this action, the attacker must have one technique or an applicable tool that can connect to a system’s weakness. In this frame, vulnerabilities are also known as attack surface.

It is important that organizations understand that from the day software was launched, a new and higher version of that software is being developed.  

To stay safe and secured, it’s important that you consciously understand how you can protect your application.

SET RULES

Some rules are made to be broken, but in this case, you have to enforce adherence. You must determine when your applications are to be upgraded and ensure that everybody in the IT department are preview to the information.

The second rule is to ensure that unauthorized personnel don’t have access to organizational software. It’s not where people should try by error, you must ensure that only authorized personnel have access to it.

EDUCATE YOUR DEVELOPMENT TEAM

Most developers don’t understand the need to consciously upgrade or check for bugs. The head of your IT department should ensure that every team mate old/new adopts this culture. 

Developer education makes a huge difference, it’s important that developers consciously protect their systems by consciously monitoring the open source they use for security patches and flaws. 

It’s better that they look out for application flaws or on other components that they use which is directly connected to each other.

PAY ATTENTION TO CURRENT SECURITY RESEARCH

Whenever a threat is discovered, researchers go the extra mile to educate the public and businesses on the dangers of these bugs on software and how individuals and organizations can protect themselves. 

It’s important that every individuals or organization that uses software should leverage the information published in these different articles.

Being ignorant of these information could have a damaging effect on your software and businesses. Organizations must ensure that they are signed up to these platforms that consciously release this research so as to be updated when there is a discovery.

USE SSL

The above word SSL stands for secured socket layer. It’s a protocol develop by Netscape for private transmission via the internet. SSL uses a cryptographic system that uses two keys to encrypt data- a public key known to everyone and a private or secret key known only to the recipient of the message.

When you have security systems like this in place, you are sure that your data is protected and your system is free from external influences.
