The way cybercrime is portrayed in the media often leads us to believe that an attack is in the same vein as a stealth break-in at a bank; quick, calculated and inescapable once it's occurred. But the sad reality is, in all likelihood there will be no flashing red lights and alarms to let you know when it's happened...  the hackers have probably already been in there for months before anyone notices.

Rather than waiting to be breached, businesses need to get wise to the fact that it probably is going to happen. They just need to have the right technologies in place to stop it getting out of hand.

Much like how road signs are often not implemented until after a severe accident, is cybercrime just a symptom of a lack of measures being in place as a result of thinking it would never happen in that particular company?
