A large attack surface, early adoption of new technologies and a wealth of high-value data creates a perfect storm situation for technology organizations. Cyber criminals have multiple means and motivations to launch attacks. What’s more, some technology companies, like managed service providers, cloud storage and service providers, and vendors of file-sharing solutions can serve as stepping stones into other enterprises and industries since they provide critical infrastructure to other organizations.
Key Technology Company Challenges
LARGE ATTACK SURFACE
Technology companies have a dual challenge of protecting their own infrastructure from cyberattacks as well as the products and services they provide to customers.Many rely on distributed operating models and cloud computing for business agility and competitive advantage. However, these models can create blind spots and security gaps that attackers use to their advantage. Compromises not only affect their immediate environment but can have dramatic ripple effects
EARLY TECHNOLOGY ADOPTERS
Many high-tech organizations are early adopters of new technologies and more willing to take business risks than their counterparts in other industries. Steeped in innovation, they and their employees are faster to adopt cutting-edge devices and applications as well as open technologies they may not be secure.
HIGH VALUE DATA
From intellectual property to employee and customer data, technology companies have a wealth of high-value information that is attractive to cyber criminals. Personally identifiable information (PII) including credit card information and employee records can be used for fraud or identity theft or resold to other threat actors.
