What is Cyber Exposure?
Cyber Exposure: The risk of a data breach or cyber attack
that could compromise an organization's confidential information or systems. Cyber exposure is an ever-increasing threat, as malicious actors exploit vulnerabilities in networks and applications to gain access to sensitive information.
Cyber exposure management
Cyber exposure management is the holistic approach to manage and measure the attack surface of an organization. Cyber exposure management includes participation from security analysts and IT operations to understand their attack surface and how to mitigate or minimize it.
Mitigating cyber exposure
Cyber exposure can be mitigated by implementing security measures, such as firewalls, encryption, and proper user training — all of which can reduce the cybersecurity attack surface
of an organization.
