We now live in a world that is more connected than ever. Whether or not you realize it, the Internet and technology touch almost all aspects of our daily lives. That said, October has been declared as Cybersecurity Awareness Month!

As we move into 2016, breaches leveraging privileged access exploits will solidify as the “Attack of Choice.” What makes these individuals and groups so attractive to hackers is their ability to tap into your organization’s highly valuable systems without triggering any alarms, which explains why it takes an average of 243 days to detect breaches. The result is more time for the hackers to get what they need and cause more damage.  

Interested in learning more about the art of the hack?

Timed with this month’s theme, Bomgar is hosting a webcast at 1 pm ET on October 15 that will feature a live hack to show how vendors can unwittingly leave network doors open for cybercriminals. The webcast will help attendees understand how to prevent the types of third-party access breaches that have made headlines during the past two years. It will also highlight how to prevent these by managing, controlling and auditing all vendor access, and will offer top tips on how to protect company and customer data, infrastructure and assets. Register today!

Don’t get caught with your guard down! It’s the perfect time to take stock of your organization’s IT security posture.
