Can you think like a cybercriminal? If cyber security and data protection are important to you, thinking like a hacker is in your best interest. Most people don’t possess this ability, which is why you have to outsource experts who know what to look for, where you’re likely to be compromised and offer solutions to keep it from happening.
In the past two years, cyber security experts have noticed that the risks have become greater as more and more companies have embraced digitization and cloud-based solutions, which offer great advantages, but also come with a greater amount of risk, particularly in a multi-cloud environment.
There has been a shift away from thinking that it’s only a matter of when, not if, you’re going to get hacked. Therefore, strategies have emerged that are less reactive and more proactive. Your system is likely under a daily threat if not multiple threats. To stay ahead of cybercriminals, let’s look at some ways you approach data protection.
Where You Are Vulnerable
Cyber security experts are great at digging in and finding areas of your system that are vulnerable to attack. The network is thoroughly scanned, penetration tests are conducted and any exploitable area is quickly revealed.
This level of expertise isn’t often found on-staff, which is why taking the steps to find that expert third-party professional to assist you is going to be necessary.
Finding the right third-party professionals requires that you look for those who have experience in your particular industry. They should also have experience in similar systems, size of the company, and network complexity.
These are people who know about all the tools available that can assist them in zooming in on potentially vulnerable areas of your entire system.
