Technology, social media and Internet purchases play key roles in how most of today’s companies conduct business and attract prospective customers. Such vehicles also act as cyber-attack gateways. Cyber-attacks are likely to occur, whether perpetrated by run-of - the-mill hackers, terrorists, insiders, or even nation states, and can cause moderate to severe losses to large and small enterprises. Organizations frequently have to determine what risks to prevent, accept, control or transfer as part of a risk management strategy.
