And there is a never-ending supply of vendors knocking down your door competing for your time and attention. These two realities make it increasingly difficult to identify which security project to tackle next. When thinking about how to prioritize, it is advantageous to take a step back and think about your businesses goals, albeit in a slightly different way: try to envision what you would be looking for if you were an external attacker or malicious insider looking to steal sensitive data, commit Ransomware, or use your infrastructure for illicit cryptomining.
