In 2019 alone, cybersecurity attacks accounted for more than $2 trillion USD in losses. “Apart from substantial financial cost, there is irreparable damage to the reputation and customer trust.”
How do enterprises respond to such news of security breach? By throwing more money at it, buying more new security tools increasing the management complexity. But despite the investments in cyber security controls, the modern enterprise is still being breached. The real problem behind all those things is that it has been extremely difficult to effectively measure your security posture. And when you can’t measure security, it becomes harder to manage and improve it.
