In recent years, the cyber threat landscape has changed significantly. For example, cybercriminals managed to significantly increase the number of attacks they carry out over the years. At the same time, the attacks have become much more sophisticated. Businesses are facing a different situation to manage the defenses. What can you do as a company?
Data security is an important issue for organizations. After all, within corporate environments, everything is connected to the Internet. With all the connected devices and environments, data volume is increasing dramatically. Also, data is everywhere, such as in the cloud and data center. It offers cybercriminals more opportunities.
The cybercriminals are constantly looking for new opportunities. Because of the larger landscape, they are finding them. They also know how to increase the volume and sophistication of attacks. Because of these developments, almost every company, if it hasn’t already, will face a data breach in the future. Therefore, as an organization, you better be prepared for an incident and a proper response to that incident.
