What is one free, but impactful change companies can make today to skyrocket their security posture?

Eighty percent of Internet traffic is secure (HTTPS) which means your company’s firewall cannot inspect it (since it’s encrypted).  This means that 80% of the traffic coming through your firewall into your organization is not getting inspected for malware!  It’s simply dubious security to have a firewall and not have it configured to decrypt, inspect, and re-encrypt HTTPS web traffic.  All business-grade firewalls have an option labeled something like SSL Decryption or SSL Inspection.  Work with your IT person or provider to get this turned on so you’re able to inspect the malware that is coming in under your nose.
