Balancing Your Organization’s Online Presence with Increasing Security Threats
Jeff Baker, Co-Founder & Technology Principal, PMP, ACP
While some companies have already established a mature online position, others may be earlier in their journey. The appeal of connecting with a global audience quickly, cost effectively, and with very little geographic restriction may be quite attractive.
Added to that is the opportunity to tell a company’s story, describe an organization’s successes, demonstrate expertise, market one’s products, and even highlight employees as part of recruitment and/or retention programs. These and many other drivers make compelling reasons why many organizations consider an online presence a vital component to an organization’s success and growth.
We will highlight technology areas where organizations are likely to be the most vulnerable, play out scenarios where a threat actor could harvest intelligence to launch an attack, and raise though provoking questions for your organization to consider as it moves towards a greater online presence.
