Cyber Threat Report

Cybersecurity frameworks act as the backbone for organizations, providing a structured set of rules and procedures to shield against cyber threats. Their primary goal? Safeguarding an organization's digital assets with precision and efficiency.

Every 39 seconds, a cyberattack occurs with an estimated 30,000 websites globally attacked every day. Cybersecurity threats can quickly become a reality and if this happens, your organization needs to be prepared with an incident response plan, or IRP.

Third-Party Risk Management (TPRM),  is the process of identifying, assessing, and mitigating potential risks that can arise from the involvement of external parties in an organization's everyday operations and data handling.

Attack surface discovery refers to the process of identifying and mapping all potential entry points or vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit to gain unauthorized access to a system or network.

Cyber attacks are on the rise, with one happening roughly every 39 seconds. No organization is immune to these risks, however, some are more commonly targeted than others, such as law firms.
