A quick glance at today’s headlines shows that cyber security is a major issue — topping the list of U.S. national security concerns. Why? Because hackers don’t target a single industry; they focus on vulnerability — from governments and corporations to public utilities, mom-and-pop businesses and ordinary individuals. If you’re on the web, you’re at risk.
A study conducted by Ponemon found that U.S. companies took an average of 206 days to detect a data breach. That’s 106 days longer than the suggested maximum.
