This week we focus on cybersecurity concepts such as segmentation, endpoint protection, and vulnerability management security.

Week 1, October 1-5 | Make Your Business a Haven for Online Safety 

The IT department is responsible for setting a strong security practice example for the broader organization. From individual security habits to organizational security strategy, IT professionals must lead by example with a top-of-mind approach to factoring cybersecurity concerns into business decisions. From cloud ramifications, to data protection strategies, to vendor selection: our continued education is critical to keeping our organizations safe.


Why is cybersecurity so important?


Cybersecurity is more critical today than ever before because as the number of connected, mobile devices has grown exponentially, so have the risks. As attacks are becoming more sophisticated and difficult to detect, organizations need holistic security solutions to mitigate risk and limit damage should an attack occur, especially in overlooked areas of cybersecurity risk such as IoT, cloud, and third-party vendors.
