A proactive approach to cyber security
To mitigate the risks of advanced cyber threats, organisations should enhance their capabilities to proactively gather intelligence and monitor and remediate vulnerabilities
Many organisations are still using a reactive, defensive posture to address cyber security incidents. When a security incident is reported, the organisation investigates it and isolates and contains the threat. This is followed by re-mediation efforts and a root-cause analysis to prevent a re-occurrence of the incident. But such a reactive approach creates enormous opportunities for cyber criminals to both take advantage of known vulnerabilities and search for those that are yet unrealised.
