7MS #323: 7 Ways to Not Get Hacked

Below are show notes for an episode of the 7 Minute Security podcast, a weekly podcast I publish that focuses on topics such as penetration testing, network configuration, blue-teaming and career advice. I welcome you to subscribe in your favorite podcast app so you don't miss an episode!

Today's episode is about a general security awareness session I'm putting together, and it's aimed at helping individuals and businesses not get hacked. To play off the lucky number 7, I'm trying to broil this list down to 7 key things to focus on. Here's my list thus far:

  1. Passwords
  2. 2FA/MFA
  3. Wifi (put a good password on it, don't use WEP, don't use WPS
  4. Sign up for HaveIBeenPwned
  5. Update all the things
  6. Block malware/mining with browser plugins
  7. Security awareness training
