In today's hyper-connected economy, organizations of every kind and size depend on networked computing systems to conduct business. This reliance on computing systems can leave organizations vulnerable to a wide variety of potential cyber attacks. Over time, hackers have honed sophisticated methods for gaining access to systems, applications, and data. These methods can include network attacks, code attacks, and social engineering, and can originate from within the organization itself, or from anywhere around the globe. Indeed, IT staff may not even be aware that their systems have been compromised.
