IT Security has become a very large and active market in the information technology industry. As with any boom, rush, or demand, everything moves very fast and quite often unplanned, which can cost you a great deal of time, effort, and money.
Our experience working with customers, attending technical conferences, and holding knowledge-transfer discussions with clients worldwide confirms an attempt by most organizations to increase their security by installing point solutions in the form of appliances, software, and multi-stage anti-something. In the end, companies find that instead of being more secure, they have become more complex and unmanageable. Often this requires more staff, more training and more budget to fulfill needs any organization has to be secure.
While performing Security Assessments we are very often surprised how easy it can be to break into a company’s infrastructure, to steal confidential information, to modify data, or to bring a network to its knees – and without detection. One company spending millions of dollars annually for its Security Operation Center, manned with a staff of 30 and equipped with the latest technology, was unable to detect a noisy and broad scan in the network initiated with one of our assessment tools. Something is very wrong here!
Technical people tend to try to solve problems by throwing more technology at those problems. But who causes the problems? Hackers, cyber-terrorists, insiders and vandals. There is one commonality , our technology problems are caused by humans, and humans are more creative than technology to overcome security measures. Increasing the use of technology does not eliminate the human factor.
Therefore, to make your IT more secure, you need human sense to protect your assets. “Think like your enemy” is one of the philosophies we teach in our seminars, workshops and trainings. A simple phrase that holds a lot of positive impact for Security Managers and Specialists.
