In any self-defense course worth its salt, before any punch, block, kick or joint lock is taught, situational awareness is made a priority to the student. Being conscious of one’s surroundings goes a long way, and it’s pretty hard to lose a fight if you don’t get into one. Perhaps as important, a heads-up, aware person represents an extremely unattractive victim to predators. Alert, upright, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed? Yeah, they hate that.
So it is with cybersecurity: It’s more than a set of tools—it’s a mindset. And just like one needs to work out regularly to stay in fighting form, your network security needs ongoing testing and strengthening over time. Cyberthreats target everyone—it does not matter what business you are in. These threats are also getting more numerous, and they are changing in nature.
