• Q&A

BACKGROUND
Lloyd's of London estimates that cyber-attacks will cost businesses as much as $400 billion a year.  The WannaCry ransomware attack and the NotPetya cyber-attack accentuated how hackers leveraged tools stolen from intelligence agencies and created mayhem around the world. Both attacks were relatively unsophisticated; but, they still caused considerable damage.  So what happens when the attackers mature to more sophisticated DDos, Stuxnet and mobile attacks (which open a back door to internal networks and apps)?

It is virtually impossible to prevent a focused intruder from gaining access to your company networks and even harder to know when it happens. Nothing goes missing and everything is exactly as you left it; yet, businesses continue to allocate as much as 85% of their effort and budget on prevention or a perimeter defense.
