    “Assume breach” is the popular computer defense strategy based on the idea that your company is either already breached or could easily be breached by a dedicated attacker. There is a lot of validity to this approach. Most companies and organizations are super easy to hack and compromise. However, it doesn’t have to be this way.

    Some senior management folks might find this strange, but you can significantly make your organization harder to breach. In fact, just a handful of defenses can do more to lower your cybersecurity risk than anything else. These include fighting social engineering and phishing better, patching the most likely to be attacked software far better, and requiring multi-factor authentication (MFA) for all logons. This won’t guarantee that you won’t be attacked, but it does reduce the risk. How much?
