Guid­ance on detect­ing malware

Mal­ware has always been one of the top cyber secu­rity con­cerns, with 71% of respon­dents to the (ISC)2 2015 Global Infor­ma­tion Secu­rity Work­force Study cit­ing it as a sig­nif­i­cant threat. This arti­cle seems to have been writ­ten in response to the above study’s findings.

Skill level: 6 – It’s a very brief intro­duc­tion, as it really focusses on what to do rather than how to do it.

Effec­tive­ness in achiev­ing con­trol: 7 – it’s a start­ing point, it won’t achieve pro­tec­tion against more sophis­ti­cated forms of mal­ware, but every­one has to start somewhere.

Qual­ity: 6 – This is not meant to be an in-​depth guide, merely a start­ing point many begin­ners will want some­thing more to fully pro­tect their devices.

Rel­e­vant to: End users, SME’s.

Rel­e­vant for: Pro­tect­ing against device malware.
