Coming at a time when cyber threats pose an increasing problem for small business security, the guide offers an in-depth analysis of session hijacking and covers common techniques used by hackers, methods to identify vulnerabilities in session management, and ways to instate strong authentication methods.
Recent statistics from Business News Daily show that nearly half of all data breaches involve small businesses, and start-ups are particularly vulnerable to hacker attacks. Recognizing that cyber threats have the potential to cost businesses a significant amount of money - and in some cases, even shut them down permanently - Cybersecurity Caucus offers tips for entrepreneurs to protect themselves against data theft and financial damage, especially in relation to the threat of session hijacking. “Just like you safeguard your possessions, securing your user sessions is crucial in preventing session hijacking,” says a company representative. “With strong authentication methods and effective prevention techniques, you can ensure that your sessions remain safe and your online presence stays secure.”
As many small business owners may lack the technical knowledge to understand what session hijacking consists of, the guide starts with an overview of the basics, including how hackers can use session hijacking to gain control of a person’s communication between a device and server, thereby stealing the session ID and impersonating the business owner.
Alongside a description of the most common session hijacking and cookies theft techniques used by malicious parties, the guide moves on to outline best practices to prevent this type of attack, including strong encryption, secure session storage, and regular updates.
Readers will also find a description of two-factor authentication and an explanation of why it is important, as well as some practical ways to identify vulnerabilities in session management, discern suspicious activity, and use secure session tokens.
The guide also includes guidance for session timeout, tips for how to handle session expiration securely, and ways to educate users and employees on session security measures.
