Cyber-adversaries are finding this to be a most opportune time to grow their bounty, and COVID-19 has only added to the challenge. With expansive “shelter in place” orders, our workforce has had to go mobile – quickly – and the protective edge has faded into the sunset. Because the majority of the workforce gets their protection while in a physical office, this has opened a significant security gap for organizations.
Cybersecurity is only scary if you are in the dark
There has been a massive investment in security tools – in fact, on average, organizations use 45 tools in an attempt to secure their information. And yet, close to 60% of executives are uncertain about their security posture.
Most IT teams don’t have the resources to perform testing of defensive tactics and controls and conduct vulnerability assessments on a regular basis to learn if their controls are doing what they were designed to do. So important questions go unanswered. Questions like: Can you verify if your security controls are performing optimally or has configuration drift opened holes in your defenses? Have any of the recent changes you’ve made to adapt to remote mandates created exposure for you?
