Some of the most basic risks involved in the opportunity for cyber attackers to penetrate and cause damage include the absence of employee education in the security risks that come with computer viruses which can be opened unintentionally or by following best security practices. This can cause serious problems and cripple daily operations. The failure to update software and ensure ongoing security patches is yet another cause for concern. Relying on a single security procedure and not layering security can cause damage across any part of the IT ecosystem. And not gaining visibility into the data provides little or no help in analyzing the system which can provide early detection as well as incident response capabilities.
