Industry leaders must look to modern innovators for their cybersecurity defense or risk embarrassing security breaches from remote workers!

Industry leaders cannot underappreciate the value of modern innovators for their cybersecurity defense, or risk embarrassing security breaches from remote workers!

 

Industry leaders must constantly secure their enterprises from multiple cyber threats. Remote workers are an easy target for cybercriminals, and they can offer an easy way into your system. Cybersecurity breaches seize media headlines, damaging the reputation of both enterprises and industry.

 

Cybercriminals are always updating their technology and changing their tactics to compromise your defense barriers. We saw this happen during the WannaCry ransomware attack in 2017, which moved laterally through enterprise systems and compromised multiple devices on each infected network. It cost the UK National Health Service (NHS) 92 million pounds and its reputation after the NHS was found to be using outdated operating systems that were vulnerable to attack. It is necessary for all industries to improve security around remote workers.
