prepared

-- Plan today for future threats and unique attacks before they occur

-- Keep a low profile and stop cyber criminals from targeting your

enterprise

-- Track and report attackers to prevent future incidents

-- Tim Wilson, Editor-in-Chief, Dark Reading "The Internet is full of botnets, worms, and trojans, all bent on turning butterflies into panic," says Michael Perna, Marketing Specialist at Fortinet.

And, according to Chris Wysopal, CTO at Veracode, Inc., "[The Target breach] simply reinforces the notion that the security of your vendors is your responsibility. If they are not following security best practices... it is your company and your customers that ultimately suffer."

Chief security officers, information officers, software developers, and those in charge of IT systems and planning should be aware of the latest security threats against the enterprise. Everybody plays a role in cybersecurity, especially those leading the way for new hardware, software, and data strategies within their organization.
