Misconfigured Networks Easy Pickings for Hackers - top government contractors - best government contracting eventMisconfigured networks are the easiest exploit for most attackers, according to a survey published earlier this week.

Tufin Technologies’ “Hacking Habits” surveyed attendees of last month’s DEFCON conference in Las Vegas, Nev. The report found that among those hackers who search for vulnerabilities, 73 percent come across a misconfigured network more than three quarters of the time ““ which, according to the majority the respondents, is the easiest IT resource to exploit.

Reuven Harrison, CTO and co-founder of Tufin Technologies, said he was surprised to find that 58 percent of respondents also viewed network misconfiguration as being caused by IT staffers who do not know what to look for when assessing the status of their network configurations. He said the survey is notable because more than half of respondents work in corporate IT.

“The really big question coming out of the survey,” Harrison said, “is how to manage the risk that organizations run dealing with the complexity that is part and parcel of any medium-to-large sized company’s security operations.”
