Breach Force: Eskom Data Leak, How to Avoid A Payout, Doomsday "Bashe" Ransomware Attack + more

Amzeal News/10304342
NEW YORK - Feb. 10, 2019 - Amzeal -- A recent blurb on Forbes hit the mark -- yes, we (humans) are are the weakest link in corporate cybersecurity, but doesn't that miss the bigger point? The reason we are the "weak link" is that most companies don't have effective controls in place. In fact, the surest way to limit risk is to implement proper controls and automate compliance at every step. Put another way, better controls makes sense financially -- data breaches are ranging from $2 to $4 million in damages -- and reducing attack surfaces is an adept tactic that'll make everyone happy.
