Topic Abstract: In today’s ever advancing threat climate, cyber incidents and breaches are an all too common part of the business landscape. Although the highly publicized breaches often involve enterprise organizations, according to the 2019 Verizon DBIR, 43% of breaches involved small and midsized businesses. These small and midsized organizations are often less prepared to combat these security attacks but deal with many of the same threats as their larger counterparts.
Enterprise organizations have the budget, tooling , and resources to better combat these cyber incidents, whereas the small and midsized organizations must be more calculated in the attack surfaces they cover in order to show due diligence with limited resources. We will explore these concepts and provide actionable insights to help security-minded professionals become more resilient in the face of constantly evolving threats.
