If security breaches are inevitable, what are businesses to do?
“It’s not if, but when your company will be breached.” This is an oft-repeated line in the cyber security industry, and it puts business executives in a catch 22 position. They care about security and know how important it is, but the message they are hearing is: “the hackers will always win”. Bosses are left wondering whether they are spending money on a problem they can’t solve.
If security breaches are inevitable, then it’s not about if or when hackers will get through your defences. Rather, it’s about qualifying whether the cyber risk you’re exposed to is acceptable, and if it’s not, figuring out what to do about it.
