With ever-advancing cyberattacks, hackers are gaining unauthorized access to networks and secure data at alarmingly high and unprecedented rates. Many organizations don’t even know their network security has been compromised until it’s much too late. Once stolen, their private data is impossible to protect.
Hackers typically begin by acquiring a set of login credentials — the easiest part of the attack — to gain initial access to the network. Once in, they will do surveillance, gathering more information on how to make their way further inside the network until they reach and gain access to the central databases and servers. Then comes the data breach.
