“It is important to remember that in a typical security system, a port opened through your firewall allows equal access to anyone in the world. Given the statistics on the volume of attacks that a computer network is likely to face, is that a wise or necessary gamble? Instead, a reasonable person might ask, how much business do we conduct in a certain nation? How many clients do we have in another? How likely is it that we should want to market our business in another? Additionally, one might reasonably decide to balance the results of those responses with the volume of cyber-attacks originating in any of those countries and provide access to your network according to the dictates of business interests, not on an arbitrary all-or-nothing basis. “
