What is the difference between “if” and “when”?
IF is used to talk about something that MAY happen. WHEN is used to talk about something that WILL happen at any time. The reality today is that it’s not IF you will experience a data breach – it is WHEN you will experience a data breach.
I just attended a Security Conference and many of the break-out sessions this year were on the topic of cyber security and cyber breaches. The emphasis is on preparation before the event happens.
