Introducing security posture
A security strategy must start from an inward look at a company’s current security position and secure score. A secure score is like a credit-rating score, but it looks at your positioning on the attack vulnerability scale of 1 to 10.
A security posture refers to an organization’s current threat-protection and threat-response capabilities. This ensures that an organization has the ability for systems, data, and identities to be recoverable and operational should an attack be successful.
A security posture’s goal should be to reduce exposure to threats, shrinking attack surface areas and vectors while building resilience to attacks, as they cannot be eliminated.
