bridging-gap-breaches-150x112Every organization wants to know how to best protect their systems and data – but exactly where to focus efforts and resources can be daunting. Botnets, outdated software, certificate mismanagement, and faulty encryption practices can all increase the risk that an organization will experience a breach, but is there one single area on which businesses should concentrate?

On Thursday, November 3rd, panelists from BitSight, FireEye, and Advisen discussed security practices that can make the difference between “good” organizations and “bad” organizations when it comes to cybersecurity. They discussed a wealth of data showing how a thoughtful, thorough approach to security can help reduce risk across an organization’s networks.
