As government agencies embrace new technologies and adapt to hybrid models of work, cybercriminals are transforming their capabilities, too. Workforces and computing resources are becoming more distributed, and the fast-evolving landscape of IT infrastructure presents bad actors with new opportunities to exploit security gaps and vulnerabilities—causing the organizational cost of data breaches to grow. Even an organization that develops a strong security posture faces more risks in this environment.
As cybercriminals devise new ways to breach protected systems and data, organizations are facing internal and external pressure to develop more strategic and proactive protections against cyberattacks. In fact, their data security and privacy measures must comply with more comprehensive rules and regulations.
