How to build your cyber fortress


The ancient Greeks taught us many things. Thousands of years later, we still apply Greek wisdom to things like government, teaching and law. And, according to MyCena Security Solutions CEO Julia O’Toole, there are still lessons to be learned in the cybersecurity world. O'Toole explains how ancient Greek architecture can provide lessons for building a strong defence against modern ransomware attacks. Highlighting the city of Mycenae, known for its robust walls and layered security, as inspiration, O'Toole emphasises the speed and vulnerabilities associated with modern ransomware attacks, criticising the reliance on single access tools and employee-created passwords. Instead, companies should learn from the ancient Greeks – implementing segmented access with unique encrypted passwords at different levels to create an impregnable fortress for their digital assets.
