Cybersecurity is the process of securing networks, data and devices to prevent attacks. It’s a critical practice for any business, regardless of size or industry.

Security breaches can have a major impact on companies and their customers, leading to a loss of reputation, financial impact, and lost trust in the brand. A cybersecurity professional’s goal is to protect businesses against these threats and help them recover quickly from a breach.

The threat of cybercrimes is growing, and hackers are becoming increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and deceptive. With more data stored and transferred than ever before, attackers have the advantage of a plethora of attack tools, techniques, and technologies that they can use to infiltrate your systems.

Increasingly, cyber attacks are targeting critical infrastructure sectors that are vital to the functioning of society — like energy production and transmission, healthcare, water and wastewater, transportation, food and agriculture. It’s no wonder that many companies are stepping up their efforts to secure these critical assets.

End-user education is key to ensuring that people are aware of the risks they may pose to an organization’s system, sensitive information, and the company’s reputation. Teaching employees how to delete suspicious email attachments, not plug in unidentified USB drives, and other important security practices can help keep their network safe.

A comprehensive approach to security includes processes, alerts, monitoring, and a plan designed to help your team maintain critical functions and systems in the aftermath of an incident (massive power outages, fires, natural disasters). Training is a vital part of any cybersecurity strategy, empowering your team with the knowledge they need to prevent or respond to threats.
