If you’re a fan of the show The Walking Dead, you may already have an idea of what the world would be like in the event of a zombie apocalypse. Wars would be waged, families torn apart, and survivors forming factions in order to defend themselves by all means possible.
Sure, these shows may teach you what to do, and not do, if a zombie plague hits. But what are some real world survival strategies that would help you secure your home and prevent succumbing to deadly infection?
A Network Security Engineer to Your Rescue
A network security engineer works as a guardian for your business. And there are a few things you can learn from what they do and apply it to your own defenses. Here are some lifelong lessons on how to survive the next zombie apocalypse:
Don’t Go Down the Obvious Path
When conjuring up your zombie outbreak survival plan, what are some of the first places you’d stop at? Hint: don’t say your nearest grocery store.
It’s no given that people need food, water, and supplies to survive. But think about how many other people are likely to follow your exact logic of thinking. Zombie experts warn staying away from places like Walmart or any other big box stores.
When it comes to your network security, the same rules apply. Avoid sticking with out-of-the-box solutions and common security software that every other company uses. These types of software are likely to be easily infiltrated by hackers because of their weak security features. Instead, go for customized, comprehensive solutions that secure every possible endpoint – computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, everything.
Stay Aware of your Surroundings
In order to survive a zombie outbreak, you must stay focused and aware of your surroundings at all times. Zombie Research Society (ZRS) president Matt Mogk explains “Your survival plan in any disaster should be centered around surviving where you are. The grass is not greener on the other side in a zombie plague. If you think it’s really bad where you are, it’s worse somewhere else.”
