Monitor the social media accounts of relevant hacktivist campaigns. This will allow you to prioritize your remediation efforts. Ensure you have regular backups in place and that staff members are appropriately trained to identify and report potential spam emails. 2. Monitor for the latest Internet Explorer and Flash vulnerabilities and ensure your site is patched. 3. Monitor for the registration of typosquatted domains. 4. Understand which ransomware variants are targeting your industry, which delivery methods are most popular, and the CVEs they target. 5. Proactively monitor for credential dumps relevant to your organization’s accounts. This can help detect if your organization has been included in a target list. Try to ascertain the tools used by the associated actors, as well as their credibility, enabling you to better prioritize your defenses. A failure to do so can leave visitors exposed to malvertising and have consequences to your reputation. Make efforts to take these domains down before they develop into a threat to your readers. Consider additional monitoring for your high value target’s (e.g.: executives) non- enterprise accounts. Ensure that you have an emergency password reset process in place.
