Cybersecurity is a top priority for organizations of all sizes, as cyber threats continue to evolve at an unprecedented pace. In response to this ever-changing landscape, the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) have released a joint cybersecurity advisory (CSA) highlighting the top ten cybersecurity misconfigurations that leave organizations vulnerable to attack.

The NSA and CISA’s CSA serves as a collective call to action for both network defenders and software manufacturers. By implementing the recommended mitigations and embracing secure-by-design principles, organizations can significantly bolster their cybersecurity defenses and protect themselves from the ever-evolving threat landscape.
By working together, network defenders and software manufacturers can create a more secure digital environment for everyone.
