Financial Consequences of Risk Acceptance Security Strategies

Question: How much risk should you accept?

Answer: None.

Threat actors are relentless in their development of new attacks. They continuously analyze how in-house security teams use security tools and how to evade detection. Threat actors have learned that security teams focus on critical alerts and are good at responding to them. They have also learned that security teams lack the scalability to respond to medium and low priority alerts. As a result, they are developing attacks that hide in the noise of these lower priority alerts, knowing they will be ignored.

With this volume and sophistication of new attacks, the cost of security tools, the shortage of security expertise and limited security budgets complicates risk management for today’s security leaders. Managing risk has become an exercise in trade-offs and risk acceptance.

That’s not good enough.
