“The good news, if there is any, is that it’s still possible to mitigate risk by investing in the fundamentals of cybersecurity, beginning with a strong cultural approach. The essential elements of protection through segmentation, attack surface reduction, and system hardening make it more difficult for threat actors to operate and spread if they get a foothold.  Careful monitoring controls that include threat hunting and rapid alerting of suspicious behavior to an experienced team can help quickly identify and neutralize attackers that manage to bypass prevention controls. Regular security validations such as penetration testing can help identify vulnerabilities from omissions or misconfigurations before attackers can exploit them in the first place.”
