Cybersecurity Training and How To Protect Your Company

Cybersecurity Training and How to Protect Your Company

On the heels of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month in October, our goal is – and has always been – to ensure that our clients have the resources necessary to stay safer and more secure online. But staying ahead of cybersecurity threats is no small feat – but that’s where cybersecurity training can serve to bridge the gap between ‘what if’ and ‘what now?’

What Is Cybersecurity?

According to the Department of Homeland Security, ‘Cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure are vulnerable to a wide range of risk stemming from both physical and cyber threats and hazards. Sophisticated cyber actors and nation-states exploit vulnerabilities to steal information and money and are developing capabilities to disrupt, destroy, or threaten the delivery of essential services.’

And according to a recent 2018 Gallup poll, 81 percent of Americans ranked cybersecurity as a ‘critical threat’ to U.S. ‘vital interests,’ second only to North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons ranking at 82 percent.
