25. © MERCER 2016 24 Y O U C A N D O T H I S : M I S T A K E S T O A V O I D Mistakes Reality It can’t happen to you. It’s IT’s problem. Yes, it can. Even though you may think your data is not all that important, it can be used maliciously. Take risk seriously. Cybersecurity includes people, policies, and procedures. It is as much a governance problem as a technical one.

26. © MERCER 2016 25 Y O U C A N D O T H I S : F I V E M I S T A K E S T O A V O I D Mistakes Reality Ignoring network architecture. Rely solely on anti-virus technology. You do need to understand and update your network. Do you know where your critical data is? Less than 40% of attacks today involve malware. “Perimeter security” alone is insufficient –

27. © MERCER 2016 26 Y O U C A N D O T H I S : M I S T A K E S T O A V O I D Mistakes Reality Failure to monitor the endpoints. Once through the perimeter– what damage can be done? This is the proactive part — constantly looking for aberrant behavior.

28. © MERCER 2016 27 C O N C L U S I O N Vendors • Help your customers: – Understand the importance of cybersecurity – Understand what you do and how it can help them – Educate them on their responsibilities for their own data safely Companies • Work with your Vendors: – Ask questions: know exactly what your vendor provides and what those implications are for you • Ascertain your own Risk Tolerance: – Plan your cybersecurity strategy accordingly
