Myth 3:
If our network gets compromised, we can fix the problem later.
Fact:
It takes hackers 30 days to exploit a vulnerability, but it can take your company up to 186 days to fix it and up to $500,000 dollars to recover from just one single cybersecurity breach.
Myth 4:
The majority of cyberattacks are not preventable.
Fact:
As many as 85% of targeted attacks are preventable. The top 10 known vulnerabilities account for 85% of successful exploits.

Patches break things and don’t work as promised.
