Health is Wealth,
even in Cyber World...
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is enabling every business to work smarter, even the cyber world.
Cyber criminals are leveraging AI to design sophisticated attacks. But they need not always use these advanced techniques unless they plan a very targeted attack. Most of the times cyber attacks are launched using simple exploits as basic cyber hygiene is lacking everywhere.
Cyber hygiene needs to be monitored on a continuous basis as there are a lot of factors contribute to degradation of cyber hygiene e.g., changes within the IT environment, product upgrades, patch releases. Some of which are within the control of an organization and some are not.
Frequent cyber health checks will go a long way in discovering vulnerabilities in digital infrastructure before the cyber criminals discover and exploit these vulnerabilities, causing avoidable loss of money, data and reputation.
