Organizations are asking the question – how much do I really need to spend on security in order to tip the scales in my favor? In order to answer that question you must first quantify the impact and risk of a cyber attack.
When rock stars use their platforms to harp on populist issues or bring attention to themselves or their agendas, it comes at the expense of all of these challenges. In my view, this does not help advance the state of security.
In response to the uptick in cyber-attacks, legislators and industry governing bodies alike have started to revise their guidelines to emphasize the implementation of a pro-active, risk-based approach to security over the traditional check-box mentality.
