Why Is It Important to Build Increasingly Diverse Security Teams?

Effective cybersecurity represents the greatest challenge of the online age. This applies all the way from protecting the data held by a third party supplier, to protecting critical infrastructure from crippling DDoS attacks.

Currently, security teams are struggling. The quantity and variety of cyber attacks directed (now purposefully) are overwhelming even the most stringent organisations. It is true, that the majority of successful breaches are the result of human error. However, aside from training, technology security solutions are required to protect endpoints and detect intrusions once in the network. Without them, vicious malware can run rampant for months, even years without being detected.

Improving cyber security best practice starts from the security team in an organisation. And, the more diverse a team, the better – in more ways than one.
