Billions of people use the internet each day to work and play, logging into devices and generating and sharing massive amounts of data. Each login, share, and device provides a point of vulnerability that can be exploited by cybercriminals. This information can be anything from personal details, to medical records, financial data or intellectual property that when accessed illegally has serious consequences. The discipline of Cybersecurity is focused on protecting these systems and the sensitive information that they contain.

Cybersecurity involves many things from preventing malware from erasing your computer to helping your business avoid data breaches and loss of revenue. The field is constantly evolving with the rapid adoption of new technologies and their integration into everyday life. Unfortunately, not everyone understands or takes the time to make sure these technologies are secure and configured correctly. This leads to vulnerabilities that cybercriminals are quick to take advantage of.

A strong cybersecurity strategy includes a risk assessment that examines the potential impact of different threats on your organization. It also covers security policies and procedures that outline roles, responsibilities and the acceptable use of technology as well as response plans for a threat incident.

Security awareness training is a key component to the success of any security program. It helps employees to spot phishing attacks, learn about the types of malware that may target their system and the steps they should take to prevent infections. It also helps to build trust and loyalty with customers and investors who are more likely to invest in a company that has a robust cybersecurity system in place.
