You've been hacked, now what?
by Corey Nachreiner - Director of Security Strategy at WatchGuard - Thursday, 11 April 2013.
Install missing security and visibility controls – There are several layers of security that many network administrators overlook when devising strategies for protecting networks from today’s blended threats. A legacy firewall alone is not enough. Businesses also need IPS, anti-virus, application control, reputation services, and many other layers of defense. Take this opportunity to beef up security controls and add additional power to your network security armory.

The clean-up process from a breach can be daunting and requires additional cost, time and resources – some investigations, particularly forensic investigations with the proper authorities, can even take months to complete. If a business is unfortunately faced with having to deal with this type of exploit, these steps will ensure the system security is strong and up-to-date moving forward, reducing the probability of a future attack.
