It’s never a nice feeling to see all the holes inside your infrastructure strategy. It’s kind of like getting a bad report about cholesterol. Deep down we know it’s a problem, but we never like to hear it from the doctor’s mouth.

But think of the alternative. You and your team might feel a little bit frustrated in the short term in seeing all the areas that you could improve. But in doing so, you’ll be well on your way to remediating those issues so that the alternative (which is way, way worse) is much less likely to become reality. We’re way nicer people to identify the holes than black-hat hackers and/or ransomware.
