Dangerous assumptions that put enterprises at risk
The adage about what happens when people make assumptions is one that many in security would be wise to recall. Worse than making a donkey of themselves, security practitioners that make assumptions put the enterprise at risk.
Andrey Pozhogin, cybersecurity expert at Kaspersky Lab, said thinking they’re protected from DDoS attacks is one of the most dangerous assumptions businesses make.
A recent Kaspersky Lab survey found that 40 percent of organizations fail to put preventative measures in place because they think their Internet service provider will protect them.
In addition to those that assume their ISPs are protecting them, the survey found an additional one-in-three (30 percent) think their data center or infrastructure partners will protect them.
