Al Kinney, head of the U.S. public sector at Hewlett-Packard‘s enterprise security services business, has said he believes organizations must learn how to think like a cyber criminal in order to defeat one, Lisa Mooijman of ICT Magazine reported Monday.

He told ICT Magazine that government agencies and companies should adopt a structural cybersecurity platform and tools designed to monitor systems 24/7.

Kinney also offered tips for enterprises to address security vulnerabilities in their information technology networks.

“Start with your biggest weakness.”

“Solve that, then update your entire network and all applications. Then take a new approach with all the new things that you're making.”

He also thinks that organizations should not implement Internet of Things technology until they have safeguards in place to keep connected devices protected.

Kinney added that an IoT enterprise system must be built with applications that are designed to operate together and separately.
