Cybersecurity risks are so pervasive that every organization has a few skeletons in the closet. There is little remedy for the most severe examples—such as sweeping a data breach under the rug—since these stem from a culture of avoidance at the highest level.
There are, however, solutions for many other risks that stem from a lack of visibility and user awareness, two problems that can prevent organizations from realizing that they have skeletons in the closet.
Some common technology risks include unmanaged devices, unpatched vulnerabilities and misconfigurations that could be exploited in attacks. End-user risks, on the other hand, include poor password practices, social engineering attacks and insider threats.
