Reiko Feaver, a partner in Culhane Meadows’ Atlanta office, was recently interviewed by Network Computing for an article on how enterprises may be unknowingly leaving their networks vulnerable to invasion.
Here are some excerpts from Reiko’s interview:
Strong network security is essential, yet creating and maintaining bulletproof network protection remains an elusive goal for many enterprises.
Ensuring that every potential gap is securely sealed continues to be a challenge for organizations of all types and sizes. Even more distressing is the fact that many enterprises fail to take some basic actions that would keep their networks safe from infiltration and attack.
Failing to stay a step ahead of emerging threats
Knowledge and planning play an important role in helping enterprises stay a step ahead of network attackers. “Identify the most likely threats, including the personnel and data most likely to be targeted,” suggested Reiko Feaver, a partner in the Atlanta office of business law firm Culhane Meadows, whose practice includes privacy and data security matters. It’s essential to stay current with threat protection measures and keep the organization’s software current with patches and updates, she advised.
Feaver also recommended using a threat intelligence service to pinpoint threats and to avoid or minimize the time persistent threats remain in the network infrastructure. “Adverse consequences of a breach multiply the longer a threat sits undetected in an organization’s IT structure,” she explained.
