In today’s world, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who isn’t familiar with cyber threats and the severity of damage they can cause. From Hollywood interpretations to very-real attacks in the news, terms like “ransomware” and “phishing attacks” have become canonized in our vocabulary. While most businesses understand the seriousness of cyber threats, understanding the appropriate threat response is a lot more complicated— especially with an increase in the sophistication and precision of cyber attacks in today’s landscape.
It's crucial to understand the components of a strong cyber threat response so you can successfully act on them when they arise. Successful cyber threat response involves detailed plans for detecting and mitigating threats, including processes, procedures, and policies implemented alongside easy-to-deploy tools to help minimize both probability and impact.
