If this happens you are accountable for the damage caused.

However, post-breach analysis reveals that cybercriminal leverage on the vulnerabilities found in your web applications to pivot into your internal networks. Web applications represent a rather increasing method attackers leverage when attempting to gain a foothold in an organization’s network.
