Emergency workers have to be prepared to spring into action at any time—and these days, so do IT professionals. Just like fires, falls and crashes can be unpredictable, so can the next big data breach. The companies you hear about in the news likely thought they were safe from a crippling attack…until they weren’t. Are you confident you could withstand a hacker’s attempts to break into YOUR mainframe?
If you read the lead article in our April newsletter, you know that “as much as 80 percent of mission-critical applications and production data [resides] on mainframes.” That’s a lot of sensitive data to monitor and protect.
It’s a lot easier to prevent a breach than to pick up the pieces afterward. Smart organizations take steps to prevent disasters from happening in the first place. Being proactive and remaining vigilant are your best defensive weapons against a cyber attack.
As I like to say, you don’t know what you don’t know. With ever-more sophisticated hackers, reams of data to analyze, new federal regulations being created and the rise of the third platform of mobile computing, social media, cloud computing and Big Data, you may find you need to increase your security intelligence.
