The 7 Best LinkedIn Endpoint Security You Should Join
Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) & Cyber Security
The express purpose of the APT & Cyber Security Group: to discuss news, technology, and information on today’s targeted and advanced persistent threats. As such, the group’s admins consist of high-level CISOs and the directors of major cybersecurity providers. Additionally, the group’s discussions involve phishing attacks and improving cybersecurity awareness. With over 60,000 members, the conversations feel diverse and detailed.
Here, we present one of the smaller LinkedIn Endpoint Security Groups; this group only hosts less than two thousand members. However, this group boasts numerous conversations on endpoint security, including legacy infections and new solutions. The members also discuss the social contributions to endpoint security challenges. Finally, the Endpoint Security group offers an excellent opportunity for networking.
Enterprise Mobility and BYOD
On the surface, this group appears more inclined to mobility challenges and solutions. Yet mobile devices represent a new aspect of business endpoint security; enterprises continue to embrace mobile devices as a tool for communication and data traffic. Therefore, this group provides a networking group for individuals with a special interest in enterprise mobility. Challenges discussed include BYOD and analytics. The group consists of just over 2,000 members.
IoT – Internet of Things
Another issue facing enterprise cybersecurity is the Internet of Things (IoT). In fact, IoT devices can represent an existential threat to your business; many producers fail to enact any sort of firmware cybersecurity or otherwise makes updates difficult. Thus, this group allows professionals focused on the IoT to discuss issues including blockchain-based security and machine learning.
Information and Communications Technology (ICT) & Cybersecurity
On the surface, this group doesn’t seem to specifically focus on endpoint security. However, this small group fits into the LinkedIn Endpoint Security Groups by virtue of its diversity of topics. Not only does this group discuss endpoint security, but it also discusses cyber resilience, cloud security, and precautions against cybercrime. Therefore, this group contextualizes endpoint security in a free market.
Mobile Application Security
Endpoint security also needs to consider application security (hence the existence of application control capabilities). The group presented here discusses current trends in mobile technology, mobile applications, and security. Top concerns for the group, which numbers over two thousand members, includes mobile payment security and mobile commerce.
BYOD: Bring Your Own Devices
Finally, we conclude our list of LinkedIn Endpoint Security Groups with a group focused on bring-your-own-devices (BYOD). BYOD policies continue to sweep businesses of all sizes, inevitably creating new cybersecurity challenges. This group can help your team learn more about the consumerization of IT and IT security. With just shy of 8,000 members, the group boasts distinct expertise on the subject.
