Are You Prepared for a Cybersecurity Breach, or Do You Just Feel Lucky?
The world is experiencing rapid digitalization, with bad actors targeting data, devices, apps and servers. Many organizations are still relying upon protection by myriad single-function security products that open up vulnerable security gaps. When state-sponsored bad actors and organized hacking groups begin targeting organizations, those siloed products protecting their digital assets will put them at great risk. Are you taking a ‘wait-and-see’ stance, or will you take action now to prepare with a unified cybersecurity platform?
Sometimes a crisis is unavoidable, as when a natural disaster hits. Others can be avoided with forewarning and preparation. The backend of a cyber breach is crisis management, and no one wants to be on that end of an event. When an organization has a cyber breach, the process of dealing with it can be messy, heart-wrenching and stressful, to say the least. The security team must confirm the breach, discern what data and systems were exposed, contain it and assess the damage, while preserving evidence. They have to contact their response team and notify all those affected. A thorough security audit is required and all logins, passwords and security processes need to be changed and strengthened. If it’s ransomware, the team will need to determine whether or not to pay a ransom.
When do you start preparing for the next crisis?
Was your organization prepared for the pandemic? Were you able to navigate the pandemic’s uncharted territory and unpredictable consequences? Responding to unpredictable events is one thing, but knowing about an approaching event and not acting is another. One thing is for certain, a new crisis is bound to fall upon us. New market dynamics will bring new technology challenges, and security responses in protecting an organization’s corporate assets needs to be broad and deep. The question is, are you prepared for a cyber breach, or do you just feel lucky?
“…this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and it will blow your head clean off, so you’ve gotta ask yourself a question: ’Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?” – Dirty Harry
It will take much more than luck and bravado to meet the cybersecurity challenges wrought by sophisticated bad actors. Cybersecurity leaders in both the public and private sector have let their cybersecurity protections lapse, and will be unprepared when they need it. Without proactively building virtual walls of defense with a unified cybersecurity platform, they’re putting the business at risk. Keeping digital assets secure requires cybersecurity protection that will defend against any type of attack. For security leaders, it’s imperative to acknowledge the security implications and impact that bad actors will have on their organizations.
Cyberattacks are coming, ready or not
With the rapid pace of technology today, sophisticated cyberattacks are happening everywhere, every day. State-sponsored and organized hacker syndicates certainly aren’t going to telegraph their increasing capabilities and strategies. They certainly won’t depend upon luck or a false sense of preparedness. Security leaders that initiate protections today, will avoid tomorrow’s painful lessons. There are unified cybersecurity platforms available today to protect organizations from increasing threats. In the fight against bad actors attempting to infiltrate digital infrastructure, a unified cybersecurity platform is a necessary arsenal for protection.

Most homeowners have had to deal with a pest problem at some point. In addition to the mess their intrusion may create, they can also cause a great deal of damage. Trying to determine their access point can be a tricky endeavor. You can attempt any number of lures and traps; sometimes with success. But the truly insidious and elusive pest will require the services of an expert.
When it comes to cybersecurity, different tactics emerge on a daily basis, which can make it difficult to keep up with current trends. Sandboxing and honeypot security are two cybersecurity tactics that are constantly evolving but can be confused. These two technologies are quite different and both offer valuable solutions to various cybersecurity issues. By understanding the differences in these two technologies, businesses can be sure they have the right solution for their cybersecurity needs.
Cyber attacks have been on the rise for the past five years and traditional, passive defenses are no longer enough to protect businesses and enterprises. Many companies are pairing defensive and offensive cybersecurity approaches and are implementing measures like honeypots and deception technologies to protect against future attacks.
