We understand cybersecurity incidents as any event that can harm a system’s confidentiality, integrity or availability. Cyberattacks are becoming more frequent and powerful, and what we observe is that companies are becoming primarily concerned with understanding how to react when said attacks occur. But this approach might not be the best. The breaches take place when a threat can exploit a system through its vulnerabilities or lack of safeguards. Thus, a combined effort of prevention, monitoring, detection and response can help us better protect our organizations.
