The job of cybersecurity within the company is never complete. Even protecting all the most valuable assets with the security points, having layers that consist of multiple protective tools, and employing teams that consist of the most talented individuals in the field don’t make for perfect security.
Slip-ups happen during long hours at the desk and dealing with heavy workloads. Firewalls can go down in the middle of the night — exposing major weaknesses for threat actors to exploit.
An unsuspected employee might fall for the social engineering attack and allow access to online criminals (just like in the case of Twilio, Cisco, GoDaddy, and countless others). New hacking methods that catch security off guard can compromise the entire network.
