And in some cases, that’s a good thing.
This is not a case of paranoia, (it’s not a case of being stuck in 90’s music either) this is the 21st century and it’s scary out there.
Network security for corporations is growing to be the number one issue that often times companies can’t manage because it remains a low priority. THAT statement makes no sense.
As of 2015 $24- $120 BILLON corporate dollars have been lost on viruses (including ransom, heart bleed, black energy and many more) and thats only whats been reported. You too can be part of the billions should you continue to make network security something “you will get to”.
You say you have invested thousands of dollars on your firewall? Ok that’s a start, but will your firewall know enough to shut down a port at 3 am when 8gb of your customers data (including names addresses and social security numbers) is flying out of your network? Firewalls are smart, but not THAT smart.
80% of your company’s threat are the folks that work there. Have you ever seen someone charge their cell phone in their workstation? This was after they plugged it in to the kiosk at Wal-Mart to print of their pictures. This is after they posted a picture of their lunch on Facebook. EWWWW, there isn’t enough sanitizer in the world to remove all of those germs.
And if the wasted billions of dollars, the Wal-Mart thing and Facebook thing aren’t enough to scare you, then this should scare you; less than 1% of hacks and crimes are reported. No company wants you to think they are unsafe. If you knew there was even a remote possiblity they were unsecure, you would not do business with them.

The best way to keep your data safe, is by having it actively monitored. Yes it sounds a little 1990s, but there is still something to be said about humans actually doing some work. Remember that 8gb of data that is flying out of your network with your customers information? Someone watching your network would shut it down, that $10,000 firewall and AI, might let it go since those appliances can be compromised by a high schooler with a months hacking experience
