Why Cybersecurity is About More Than Prevention-Focused Products (Forbes)


Cybercrime today is rampant, and businesses must be pragmatic about the threats they face. “It’s not a matter of if but when” is a common industry warning to companies about the dangers they face of being breached. The truth, however, is even more sobering. “When” has come and gone — there’s a good chance you’ve already been compromised, and you need to find the breach.

To do so requires shifting from a preventative mindset to one centered on threat detection and response and allocating your cybersecurity budget accordingly. Spending in this area is already a top priority for many organizations.
