In the wake of the WannaCry and the more sinister Adylkuzz cyber-attacks, those employed as Chief Information Officers and Chief Information Security Officers within their organizations will be at the front line of defending their organizations against cyber threats. Due to the highly regulated nature of both the Finance and Health industries, compliance requiring security monitoring is of the utmost importance in preventing and mitigating cyber threats. However, the cost of creating in-house continuous cyber monitoring is inhibiting for most organizations. What is required is a partner. A partner who can provide 24/7 monitoring with extensive correlation rules combined with the right technology and experienced staff. All of which if done in-house can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

With the recent announcement of Target reaching a settlement agreement with the State Attorneys Department in 47 States, many in industries that are reliant on information technology are reconsidering the importance of compliance. In total Target has agreed to pay $ 18,5 million to settle rather than waiting to hear what would happen if it went to court. Not only does Target have to pay the aforementioned agreed upon amount mentioned above; they must also implement a far more robust information security program. Even though Target is a large multi-national this fine cannot be deemed a drop in the ocean as it is not only the fine but the further cost of improving their information security systems. This settlement comes only months after Home Depot agreed on a settlement amount of $ 25 million for a data breach which affected numerous financial institutions.
