SCMagazine's 2014 Data Breach Survey shows companies are taking steps to raise security awareness and investing in IT security and risk management practices but given the number of breaches and other high profile cyber crimes that have occurred more recently, are they doing enough?
Today there is a veritable alphabet soup of data security standards and laws governing how companies must operate. But, most agree, compliance is more of a first step to security rather than an assurance of security itself.
The methods cyber attackers use to infiltrate networks are endless. There is no doubt that the more sophisticated bad guys looking to steal specific data have enlisted surreptitious ways to achieve their ends.
Compromise can happen in seconds and containment can take weeks. For enterprises, it's no longer a matter of if you will be breached, but rather a matter of when.
Right now, Web attackers are amassing a global arsenal of knowledge and resources that is allowing them to expanding their reach well beyond financial services to virtually every industry, everywhere.
Do you feel alone? No resources? No help? If you are like many security practitioners faced with a mountain of tasks each day and a small (or non-existent) team to help, prioritization and efficiency are key.
