Cyber threats need an ounce of prevention and a ton of cure
Conclusion: In this era of targeted, self-obfuscating, and successful cyber-attacks, organisations must do three things. First, recognise that the organisation cannot prevent a dedicated attack. Second, understand what the organisation’s information assets are, and where they are. This is because we cannot always anticipate how the attacker may get in, but it is imperative to know what they are likely coming for. Third, increase your focus on detection and incident response, because you must be able to deal with a breach when it happens.
