The average cost of a data breach is $3.5 million, a cost many companies cannot afford to pay. Yet many companies remain unknowingly susceptible to hacking and other intruders.  How can IT leaders identify their weak spots and avoid costly breaches and the loss of customer loyalty that goes along with them?

How can your organization reduce risk by taking a proactive approach to data security? Here are four key steps to take:

  • Understand where - and why - you may be vulnerable 
  • Conduct a vulnerability assessment 
  • Address your vulnerabilities, measure your improvements and replicate your successes across the entire organization 
  • Implement a proactive strategy to protect your data
