High-risk ports: The chink in your network armor

A risk-based approach to cybersecurity

Security is principally about managing risk. The more commonly exploited and dangerous ports you have exposed to the Internet, the greater your risk because the attacker will have more chances to try to execute a cyber attack. This observation brings me to the next part of my cybersecurity question related to network exposure: How many systems expose administrative access and high-risk ports to the Internet? This is part of my online book: Cybersecurity for Executives.
