Although the number of highly-public data breaches feels smaller through the first three quarters of 2015 than it did last year, two indisputable facts remain:
- Large public and private organizations will continue to be high-value targets, based on the massive sets of customer and financial data they maintain.
- Malicious hackers and thieves will continue to focus their attacks on the individual employee to breach the company’s defenses.
Although hackers may view a company’s employees as the weakest link in the defensive perimeter, we have a different perspective at Avnet.
We believe an informed, aware employee can be a company’s greatest asset when it comes to identifying and avoiding malicious attacks.
So every summer, we create and distribute a report created by Avnet’s IT Security team called State of IT Security: What You Need to Know.
