Cyber Security Challenges
Every organisation within every sector is under attack. And the hackers and cyber criminals who launch these attacks are becoming more sophisticated, systematic and destructive.
Ransomware is big business. In fact it’s close to becoming a multi-billion euro per year business as cyber criminals harness automated tooling and criminal affiliate networks to spread their malware to an ever greater number of vulnerable organisations.
New security products can provide some protection. But as the number of security products you introduce increases, so too do the security challenges they create. These include support and maintenance, complex integration issues and poor co-operation between disparate components. All of this can make custom development appear tempting, but this invariably proves to be a costly, inefficient and ineffective route.
A successful security strategy is more than a product or service, it’s a process. And like the methods used to attack you, it will never stop evolving. Your security strategy is your plan for survival. So good can never be good enough. It has to be the best.
Challenges facing organisations when approaching security, include:
- No standardised security framework in place
- Fog of more
- Limited policies or procedures
- Unmet compliance and audit requirements
- Limited ability to manage incidents
- Disparate technologies that lack integration
- Out-of-date systems and software with unpatched vulnerabilities
- Limited resources and inability to locate qualified personnel
