Cybercriminals are hacking into enterprises and making money, not because they are a select group of masterminds but because networks are too vulnerable and data too valuable. In other words, cybercriminals can make easy money doing it. Traditional forms of security usually incorporate an attempt at blocking every attack, which is simply impossible.
However, what if we focus on making it harder for cybercriminals to get that easy money? What if our security strategies concentrate on those technologies and practices that make an organization less attractive as a target by undermining the economics that make cybercrime so profitable? It’s by disrupting the actual business of hacking that enterprises can reduce their risk and improve their security posture.
