Danesh (VP Engineering, Theom) describes the importance of continuous, proactive protection against emerging data breaches in this video.
Though there are a lot of security tools, breaches have not stopped. Data breaches are growing faster, making breach prevention a high priority for management and boards of companies. The cost of a data breach goes beyond the fines imposed. It can include legal costs, reputation damage, or opportunity cost. More recently, in health care companies, the cost of a data breach or a ransomware incident has led to the loss of human life. Rather than reacting to ransomware or data breaches, a better approach is proactive protection against breaches. A proactive protection approach can help build the right processes and practices to prevent data breaches.
Proactive protection - what does that mean?
Understanding the risk, the susceptibility, and the potential impact of a breach (if not remediated), can help enterprises prioritize protection and move to prevent breaches and reduce the attack surface proactively.
