We live in a day and age where cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities abound. Organizations must work smarter, not harder, to prepare for andprevent cyber-attacks. Preventing an incident requires developing strong security capabilities with careful planning, analysis, and testing. During the prevention planning stage, it’s critical that businesses and individuals work together to protect their organization’s assets by applying security policies including Intrusion Prevention Services (IPS), Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), access control procedures, Two Factor Authentication (TFA), and continuous awareness training throughout the organization.
