Ransomware and malvertising are catching security organizations flat-footed. Even groups with mature security operations are having trouble responding to the latest iteration of security threats. According to a recent report, barely one-third of global organizations feel prepared to handle these modern cyberattacks. Justin Dolly of Malwarebytes explains how security leaders can step up their game.
"All security organizations, regardless of the [enterprise] that they are bound to protect, are on a journey, and the journey is seldom a short one," Dolly says. "So depending on the timing of an attack, a security team's ability to respond in an intelligent and efficient way is really very much dependent on where they are on the journey. At the end of the day, it's not surprising to me that two-thirds feel they are not positioned well to deal with a modern attack."
