The Internet of Things Raises Risks Imagine if all of the multi-function printer units in your organization sent an electronic copy of every document that is scanned, copied, or printed to a remote attacker. It happens. Now imagine if someone could tap the microphones in all of your office’s conferencing equipment. It also happens – without your knowledge.
As I mentioned in my previous post, there is much confusion in the cybersecurity market around vulnerability scans and penetration tests. The words are not interchangeable. They are very different in the complexity and depth of vulnerabilities that they test, in the talent required to execute them, and in the report that will ultimately be delivered.
When safeguarding an organization against the threat of cybercrime, it’s important to regularly test how well your current security measures are performing. I recommend that organizations apply a regular schedule of the right tests to help them identify, prioritize and repair vulnerabilities that may threaten their security.
