Researchers at the University of California are reporting that one percent of all websites have been hacked over the previous 18 months. Chris Olson, CEO at The Media Trust commented below.
Chris Olson, CEO at The Media Trust:
“The recent University of California San Diego study reports what most enterprise IT professionals already know: website security standards are weak. In today’s dynamic digital environment, not only do traditional security tools fail to keep up but also security standards and best practices are woefully out of date. As a result, general security practices are ineffective against emerging threats. The best defense is applying a vendor risk management philosophy to digital assets by identifying all partners executing code and mandating their compliance with company policies and requirements. This security-first approach will expose anomalous activity before it propagates.”
