It might be a more exciting story to claim a nation-state pilfered your data, but the more likely scenario is that your enterprise failed at some of the most basic tenets of cybersecurity hygiene, leaving the door open to script kiddies and opportunitistic hackers to run rampant in your system.

Maybe we are operating on false assumptions. The following list (to be continued in next month’s column) is meant to promote a dialogue about what, in my view, are widely held cybersecurity myths.
One could argue that cybersecurity is the most intellectually demanding profession on the planet. The rate of change is so great that no challenge is ever solved and no problem ever resolved completely.
