Can You Gauge Your Organization’s Cyber Risk?

October 24, 2019

Defending against cyberthreats isn’t easy. No matter the size of your company.

For most organizations, it’s becoming an increasingly complex and costly endeavor.

Cybercriminals are continually upping their game by employing sophisticated attacks across an ever-expanding attack surface. To bring matters home, your organization will be particularly vulnerable if you leverage the cloud, adopt IOT technologies, and/or embrace BYOD or work-from-home policies.

With that in mind, do you have a firm handle on the risks you’re facing?

Are you aware of what computing assets currently live in your environment? If not, you could be leaving yourself wide open to a host of cyberattacks targeting unpatched applications and an abundance of vulnerabilities.

What’s more, vulnerability management solutions alone are not delivering businesses with the true visibility they need to effectively manage their risk profile. In order to do so, organizations need to work diligently on identifying and addressing system misconfigurations, work on recognizing account takeover possibilities from prior credential exposures, as well as taking on other specialty actions to reduce their attack surface.

What the Data Reveals About Cyber Risk:

-On average, it takes 7.72 average days for hackers to exploit a vulnerability

-It takes 120 days to patch a vulnerability.

-99% of Cyberattacks require end user action to be successful.

To maintain a strong cybersecurity posture in the present threat climate, organizations must successfully know the ins and outs of their operations and have an in-depth view into the entirety of their assets. They must also be able to continually measure key aspects of their risk environment — allowing them to set benchmarks and compare progress to goals that have been set and established.  

As you can tell, those are a lot of unique specialties at play. And that’s exactly what Arctic Wolf wants to help with.
