Download ‘InsITe’s Practical Security Defense Guide’

Being in the technology industry for over 20 years now, it never ceases to amaze me how little is known and understood of technology security. Security is still largely seen as a hassle, or is seen as unnecessary or not applicable due to organizational size, industry/vertical, or because “all of our data is stored onsite”. This type of thinking is a mistake. The reality today is that security is more important than ever.

Global attackers are targeting all organizations, large and small, not just the largest organizations. And despite any intentions to store all data onsite, the reality is every organization’s employees are transmitting or storing organizational data externally on a regular basis, they simply may not know how or when. To top this off, it seems as of recent that attackers are recognizing that hitting many smaller targets is far more profitable than focusing on a single larger target. That means small businesses are in the crosshairs as much, if not more, than large enterprises.
