Security Congress Abstract
The average enterprise security team has more solutions in its arsenal than ever before. Many statistics indicated that companies have more than 70 unique security applications and tools in place. While chief information security officers and their teams may be drowning in technology, the enterprise isn’t becoming more secure. The truth is that the vast majority of data breaches can be prevented with basic actions, such as vulnerability assessments, patching and proper configurations. An Online Trust Alliance study estimated that 93 percent of reported incidents could have been avoided with basic cyber hygiene best practices, a figure that remains largely unchanged in the past decade. My presentation will force participants to question if they are looking at cybersecurity the wrong way, and challenge their thinking.
