It is no longer a question of whether your network will be breached… It is a question of when.
You are then inclined to ask:
- How quickly can I find them before they start inflicting real damage?
- What are their intensions?
- How quickly can we contain the impact of a data breach?
The information-threat landscape is expanding. The newest generation of remotely controlled network attacks is challenging the effectiveness of traditional detection and prevention tools, making prevention-based approaches less effective.
Thus, it is just a matter of time before determined threat-actors penetrate your corporate network and systems. And while prevention-based security approaches remain relevant, they are no longer enough.
This paradigm shift dictates that organizations change their information risk management strategies from prevention-based to post-breach detection security approaches, if they are to maintain and safeguard their Information Security posture.
