OREM, Utah, Feb. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- With increasingly sophisticated tactics and no shortage of cyber tools, hackers continue to compromise organizations.
"Businesses–especially those with remote locations and large networks in retail, hospitality, and healthcare–make irresistible targets to threat actors for several reasons: there is more exposure to cyber risks and less awareness of complex and evolving threats," says SecurityMetrics SOC Operations Director, Matt Heffelfinger.
Organizations with remote locations that are part of an extended network face additional security risks. Remote locations traditionally lack security visibility and have therefore become easy targets among threat actors.
Heffelfinger continues, "An effective IT team would need a mix of specific skills, threat intelligence capabilities, and incident response resources to adequately prevent or respond to a cybersecurity incident. IT teams have a big advantage if they can view their data security through a wider lens than endpoint protection, a risk audit or vulnerability scan alone."
