Businesses are often criticized for not having strict policies for information security. However, this criticism is not inaccurate. Important information security practices are often overlooked despite all the major hacks discovered in recent years. It is unfortunate that preventive measures are often adopted only after a crippling incident.
It is not only the hacks that threaten businesses throughout the world. Self-propagating malware is perhaps an even greater threat. The release of Eternalblue and Doublepulsar exploits from the NSA hacking toolset led to the worldwide Wannacry malware attack that took down several businesses.
