What Threats Are Most Commonly Overlooked, and How Can They Be Avoided?

Many companies patch well-known vulnerabilities but often skip comprehensive vulnerability scanning. Scanning ensures patches are properly installed and identifies lesser-known vulnerabilities cybercriminals can exploit.

Key Takeaways

  • Even after patching, there is a risk that vulnerabilities have already been exploited.
  • Cybercriminals continue to exploit unpatched vulnerabilities from years ago.
  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a simple, powerful, and practical solution to reducing cyber risk.
  • Utilizing free and low-cost cybersecurity education and awareness training resources can help organizations avoid significant disruptions, costs, and damage to their reputation.
