These kinds of breaches are almost always tied back to human error, either not following documented instructions or failing to automate an important security step during deployment. The answer remains to continuously increase awareness of the risks associated with cyber security and the importance of being vigilant any time a human action is involved. Creating this culture of awareness is the first and most important step any organization can take in decreasing their cyber exposure.
