5 Ways Organizations Will Reduce Cyber Risk in the Digital Age

Protecting trade secrets


1. Infrastructure protection

Potential infrastructure vulnerabilities are addressed by improving network strategy and implementation, cloud security, and instituting anti-DDoS Attack protection.

2. Vulnerability management

Potential security risks are identified through testing and the use of vulnerability management tools.

3. Application protection

Key applications are kept protected and up-to-date through routine testing and management, including enterprise application security, source code review, and source by design: secure SDLC protocols.

4. Identity and Access Management

Identity and access management solutions allow authorized users and customers to access an organization’s infrastructure and data and help enhance the security of online transactions while minimizing friction in the user experience.

5. Information Privacy and Protection

Valuable personal, user, and customer data are kept private by adopting industry-leading holistic and integrated data solutions. Unauthorized access to confidential corporate, user, and customer data is prevented to avoid expensive legal, financial, reputation, and regulatory issues.
