Recommendations to Undersea cable to reduce Intrusion risks:
Implement strong access controls and authentication mechanisms to limit unauthorized access, such as Multi Factor Authentication. Regularly update and patch software and systems to address known vulnerabilities. Use Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) to monitor and block suspicious activities. Segment your network to limit lateral movement by attackers in case of a breach. Educate your employees about phishing attacks and social engineering tactics to prevent credential theft.
