Mid-size companies are biggest cybersecurity risk

There is a problem we’re overlooking in business today – and cyber criminals know it. In fact, they’re banking on it all the way to black market. The problem is in our mid-tier companies. It’s difficult to spot at first, considering these private, tight-knit organizations are built on trust. The great irony is that this internal trust is the very thing that makes them vulnerable to exploitation. The core management teams at mid-tier companies trust each other so implicitly that they tend to dismiss the need for internal cybersecurity controls. They settle for traditional locks on the parameter so that operations can run without disruption on the inside.
