WHY YOU NEED TO CARE: THINGS CHANGE:
With all the daily blasts of news about cyber attacks, it can be easy to fall victim to cyber fatigue—and lose sight of where your organization sits in the scheme of things. Could your company be a target? How might hackers attack you? What would be the motivation for a cyber attack on your organization? More importantly: Is your business prepared to withstand a cyber attack? Would you even know if you had been breached?
Check Point research shows that cyber attacks are not only not going away—they’re evolving and finding new ways to infect. While many companies might have security infrastructure in place, a Check Point survey of IT professionals shows that 97 percent are using outdated cybersecurity technologies.
At issue is that when organizations first began to focus on cybersecurity, it was all about securing the network perimeter. But as business extended to mobile and remote ways of working—and then to the cloud—security became an afterthought, if it was considered at all.
