How to Get and Stay Cyber Ready – Nick Biasini – RSA23 #4
“Man plans, the Universe laughs” - unfortunately, that’s been the saying for far too long when it comes to cybersecurity. Security leaders know it's only a matter of time before their organization gets breached, but instead of being ready for it, they rely on fixing the problem after it happens. In Cisco’s newest report, the first ever Cybersecurity Readiness Index, it was found that a small minority of businesses globally (15%) consider themselves to be ready and able to defend against the expanding array of cybersecurity risks and threats of today. Organizations need to get ready and stay ready with solutions they can trust.
