Almost guaranteed to have no patching, no contingencies, poor backups (or limited) and potentially outsourced chunk of IT.

The fact their external points were unpatched and poorly configured is a massive red flag, basically they don't test their own stuff, so that means realistically they now need to pay over the odds for someone to do all that for them, to tell them what they don't know - that they don't manage their systems or understand the risks they are running.

Watch as Senior Management don't get sacked or resign over this.
