Organizations must prioritize how cloud security affects the organization, break down recent cyber attacks, and implement controls that protect the organization from future threats. Some of these tools include the Top Threats initiative complements industry tools for a richer business context. IT leaders should also compare industry perception with actual threat data in the Verizon DBIR. Another strategy is to take real-world attacks and use alternative lateral techniques from the MITRE ATT&CK framework.
