Bill Berutti president of the Performance & Availability product line and president of the Cloud Management / Data Center Automation product line for BMC Software, Inc is able to speak about how the cost of modern day data breaches are huge – not just in terms of data loss and damaged reputations, but also in terms of significant financial losses.

“In today’s digital, data-led economy, customers, employees and stakeholders can demand more from digital businesses, more than ever before. It is therefore imperative that businesses of all sizes, whether you are a high-profile brand such as Sony Pictures or an emerging SME, are taking every possible effort to secure customer data as a standard procedure – not as an afterthought in response to a data breach. In order to keep the hackers at bay, digital businesses should consider implementing practical steps to bolster perimeter security, such as :
- Respond as quickly as possible to a known vulnerability to close the ‘SecOps gap’- the time it takes for a company to reduce the time it is vulnerable to any given security issue
- Secure all internal systems- not just the most vulnerable
- Take steps to secure third party software- this can often be the gateway to a huge security incident within the company
Taking these steps from the get-go could maintain reputations, prevent significant financial losses, and ultimately help retain a loyal employee and customer base for the future.”[/su_note]
