Any one of these cyber attacks can be easily implemented if your organisation does not have the proper cyber security in place. It is vital to assess your organisation’s level of cyber security in order to see where your weaknesses are, and how you can ensure that you are fully protected.
The most effective strategy to mitigate and minimise the effects of a cyber attack is to build a solid foundation upon which to grow your cyber security technology stack.
Solution providers often tell their clients that their applications are 100% compatible and will operate seamlessly with the current IT infrastructure, which, for the most part, is true. The problem arises when organisations add IT security solutions from different manufacturers regardless of the granularity of their configuration settings, and technology gaps are exposed.
Technology gaps appear for one simple reason: developers always keep certain portions of their code proprietary to retain their competitive advantage, meaning applications from different developers are never completely compatible. It is through the resulting gaps that attacks usually occur.
Robust cyber security will help you identify these gaps and mitigate the risk of an attack.
