When unauthorized users penetrate public and private networks, they can disrupt, modify or even destroy companies' electronic data, which can lead to devastating consequences. As technology advances, more organized and sophisticated cyberattacks are becoming more increasingly prevalent and threatening. Many companies are investing in security measures intended to prevent attacks, but few have shifted their mindset to accept that data breaches in today's society are inevitable.
Having a proactive cybersecurity strategy is a company's best defense against a breach because it helps identify the access points so the company can respond quickly to minimize the consequences that come from unauthorized access to data. In our whitepaper, Cybersecurity First Aid Kit: Four Steps to Recognize, React and Recover from a Breach, we outline what should be part of companies' overall process to oversee and control their networks and electronic devices.
