The conveniences of a more digitally connected world come with an increased amount of cyber risk. The news has been peppered recently with stories about ransomware attacks, supply chain hacks, and Coronavirus phishing scams, with an alarming rise of cyberattacks on public entities.
With cybercriminals becoming more sophisticated and the pandemic producing more access to company systems from home, public entities have to take greater control of their cybersecurity posture to help safeguard their systems and data, and mitigate cyberattacks.
Protecting your organization from cyberattacks involves more than anti-phishing software and threat detection tools, as important as they are. Agencies must also educate their workforce with ongoing training that provides meaningful information around cybersecurity and best practices for combating cyber threats. Your workforce is often your first line of defense against potentially devastating data breaches.
