Organizations often approach cybersecurity with a technology-first strategy, overlooking the basic security practices and hygiene that will serve them well.
This happens for a number of reasons, including that CISOs tend to come from a technology background and vendors are making promises their technology can’t fulfill or prove. Another misperception is that compliance is the path to security. Based on these realities, companies with finite resources and dollars may feel that a strong security posture is out of reach. This is not so.
Based on Secureworks client engagements in the first-half of 2016, it has become clear that organizations with a foundation based on basic security best practices and solid hygiene can be successful in winning against cyber threats.
