October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Does your company have an up-to-date and active cybersecurity strategy in place?
You read and hear about the high-profile cyber breaches – Colonial Pipeline, JBS Foods, T-Mobile, AT&T, LinkedIn, Kaseya, Oldsmar (FL) Water Treatment, Microsoft, SolarWinds, et al. However, there are thousands more breaches/events weekly you never hear about because they are not household names. Cybercrime is ever-evolving, and it’s a business emanating from gangs in the nation-states – they go to work every day in tall shiny buildings!
No sector, business segment, or organization size is immune.
Here are some important stats to keep in mind…
- Ransomware attacks alone are up 288% between Q1 and Q2 of 2021 according to NCC Group.
- The insurance industry now ranks cyber incidents as 3rd largest risk globally behind business interruption and the pandemic.
- The harshest of realities is that 60% of small and medium enterprises go out of business within 6 months of a cyber attack.
This Lunchtime Topic will cover…
- The current state of cybersecurity
- Underlying causes of a cyber breach
- How to improve your cybersecurity
