Cybersecurity has become a top-tier risk for U.S. and multinational organizations. It is only a matter of time before a determined hacker will penetrate your organization’s system and successfully exfiltrate some data. (Indeed, this has most likely already happened, even if you are told it has not.) As Cisco CEO John Chambers recently predicted, the volume of cyberattacks, and ultimately, the number of successful penetrations, is likely to increase exponentially.
Attackers innovate rapidly at little expense, harnessing sophisticated cyberweapons, sharing techniques and “renting access” to corporate networks to less sophisticated cybercriminals. Hackers typically operate beyond the reach of developed world law enforcement and are almost never apprehended.
