Cybersecurity Program Manager
Is your business secure? Learn how you can prevent your small business from being the next victim of a cyber attack.
In 2015, over half a billion private records were stolen or lost due to cyber-attacks. The incidence of spear-phishing attacks increased by 55 percent, and ransomware attacks increased by 35 percent. Of the targeted Spear Phishing attacks detected by security firm Symantec, 43 percent of these attacks targeted small businesses.
According to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), companies have reported over $800 million in losses due to cyber incidents. Since small businesses make up 99.7% of all employer firms in the U.S., this is a staggering number. How can you protect your company from such cybersecurity incidents?
DeVine Consulting’s cybersecurity program manager will cover topics that may help you secure your company’s IT assets and reduce your business’s risk of experiencing a threatening cybersecurity incident. Specific topics include:
• The modern cybersecurity landscape: recognizing threats and vulnerabilities
• How to recognize types of information that should be secured
• Best practices for guarding against cybersecurity threats
• How to respond if your small business is targeted in an attack
