As security vendors, it is incumbent upon us to reduce complexity. By resolving to make advances in these three areas, we can reduce security complexity while helping more organizations thwart more attacks.
Hackers are creative by nature, so you have to use your imagination to think like one. Once you can see your organization from a hacker’s point-of-view, you will be equipped to defend your organization like a security pro.
It is both naïve and wrong to ignore the role infrastructure plays in protecting data. Trusted networks trump untrusted networks. However, should security be a reason to upgrade networks or stay with proprietary compute architectures?
With increased awareness and a deeper understanding of how attackers go about their ‘shopping’ we can take some relatively simple baseline measures that can go a long way toward protecting against cybercrime this time of year.
