Why do some organizations get compromised and others do not? Fifteen years ago, when an organization was compromised, it was pretty easy to understand why. The organization spent minimal energy and effort on security, did not protect their systems and it was pretty obvious why they were compromised. Today, organizations are spending significant resources on cyber security and still being compromised. Many executives and technical staff are getting very frustrated because on the surface it looks like they are doing the right things, but they are still compromised. This talk will focus on why organizations are compromised and what checks you can perform to determine your likelihood of being compromised. Trends and solutions will also be examined to understand what needs to be done to build an effective program.
