Companies are desperate to find new solutions to keep their networks safe from cyberattacks, and there is a strategy that can be utilized: assume a data breach has occurred, with foreign cybercriminals or government snooping behind the breach. This allows companies to take a unique angle in trying to defend their networks, fixing problems that potentially make it easier for criminals to gain access.
"You must assume something is going on and you have to start looking for it," said Patty Hatter, McAfee CIO and senior VP of operations. "Be paranoid - it helps."
As cyberattacks continue to evolve, companies struggle to teach employees on accurately defending against phishing attacks. Trying to keep a network 100 percent secure is virtually impossible, so business leaders need to make sure data is properly backed up, security protocols are constantly upgraded, and security holes are fixed as soon as they are found.
