With organizations under more pressure than ever to identify, prevent and mitigate cyber risk, new strategies are required to address increasing and diversifying threat vectors. Gaining true visibility into the state of cyber risk requires organizations to address the need to protect people—internal and external—against attacks at three different levels.
