Contrary to popular belief, cyberattacks are not (always) a massive attempt to take over or disable your infrastructure. While a wide DDOS attack can be used as a decoy, the real work is more subtle, more elaborate. Consider a James Bond film, for example. The bad guy would try to infiltrate your organization quietly, identify its weaknesses, and attempt to gain power gradually in order to fulfill his villainous plan.

This is especially true for fragmented organizations and enterprises relying heavily on external contractors and employees working remotely.
