Over the course of the past few years, UncommonX has continued to
observe companies’ unwavering “It could never happen to me,”
mindset, despite an uptick in cyber threats and attacks. This
presents a great challenge in the cybersecurity world and the
business community at large. There still isn’t a strong urgency or
focus on digital protection. The reality is that “the problems of
the past are the problems of today.” Even though there’s a
heightened interest in the topic of cybersecurity, due to recent
attacks, organizations are not taking the necessary steps to learn
from the past and safeguard their future.
