No matter what the objective or task, organizations operate best with a well-tuned mix of people, process and technology, and this is especially true when implementing cyber security protection. Cyberattacks have become more targeted, more organized and more lethal. With the advent of mobile connectivity, cloud and IoT, these attacks have a much easier time finding gaps in cyber defenses and making their way inside the network.
