Is Preventing a Cybersecurity Attack One of Your New Year’s Resolutions?

2023 could be considered a highly successful year from the perspective of both security professionals and cybercriminals. Security teams leveraged groundbreaking technologies to successfully fend off attacks that would have devastated their organizations in years past. At the same time, we saw the rise of new cyber threats that targeted organizations of all sizes and led to serious financial consequences for many.

As cybersecurity enters a new era of automated breach prevention, not just breach detection, security companies may begin to achieve even greater victories in the cyber arms race. But it’s ultimately up to the businesses at the center of the fight to ensure they’re armed for battle.

Enhance Security in a Multi-cloud World

Now’s the time to adjust your security strategy — don’t wait before your perimeter defenses are no longer effective against cyberattacks. Beyond prevention, you need swift breach detection and remediation to minimize the time criminals spend in your environment and the harm they can cause.

Breach Detection

Actively searching for threats is important for keeping your business safe. To find threats, you need a team that monitors and manages your environment 24x7x365, using advanced technology and analytics.

Minimizing Breach Window

The most precious resource for a threat is time. So your security strategy must include an approach to closing the breach window as quickly as possible — the longer you are in a vulnerable state, the more damage you are susceptible to.

Threat Remediation

Managed service providers within our portfolio not only notify you of a breach, but act on anomalous events immediately, on your behalf, based on pre-approved actions.

By turning to a Managed Service Provider with the resources and experience to detect and respond to security events on your behalf, you can help ensure your environment’s security while reducing your TCO.

The costs associated with security breaches are going up, jumping 29 percent since 2013 to more than $4 million per incident in 2016, according to Ponemon’s annual benchmarking report. In addition, when it comes to the impacts of breaches – such as cost per record lost – Ponemon says the gap is widening between organizations that are unprepared and those that have added policies and processes like incident response plans, encryption, and employee training.

To calculate the average cost of a data breach, Ponemon collects both the direct and indirect expenses as well as opportunity costs incurred by the organization as follows:

  • Direct cost –

    the direct expense outlay to accomplish a given activity, such as engaging forensic experts, outsourcing hotline support and providing free credit monitoring subscriptions and discounts for future products and services.

  • Indirect cost –

    the amount of time, effort, and other organizational resources spent in the aftermath of a breach, such as in-house investigations and communications. This category also includes the extrapolated value of customer loss resulting from turnover.

  • Opportunity cost –

    the cost of lost business opportunities resulting from negative reputation effects after the breach has been reported to victims and publicly revealed to the media.

A 2016 report from Deloitte Advisory says the costs of a cybersecurity breach could be higher than most data show as the costs can rack up for many years after the initial incident. The firm identified 14 cyberattack impact factors, including seven that are hiding beneath the surface and account for 95 percent of the financial impact.
