Take Action During National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Most organizations today are completely dependent on the Internet to function. And moving forward, this dependency will continue to develop as more connected products make their way into the enterprise.

With every new endpoint and account, though, comes more risk. Businesses today are more vulnerable than ever to cybercrime. Consider the following statistics:

  • Global ransomware costs could exceed $5 billion by the end of this year.
  • 41 percent of healthcare data breaches in 2017 have been linked to insider threats.
  • Cyberattacks against SMBs have increased by 55 percent in 2017.

In light of these troublesome statistics, every business needs to take the time to assess its cybersecurity strategy. And October is the ideal time to do it, as it’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Month — an annual campaign, sponsored by the National Cyber Security Division (NCSD) of the Department of Homeland Security in cooperation with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), designed to promote cybersecurity and best practices in America.

One of the best ways to recognize National Cybersecurity Awareness Month is to educate your employees about the dangers that are lurking online.

Apex Technology Services is now offering team cybersecurity awareness training programs for businesses of all sizes and vertical markets. This comprehensive course will instruct workers how to stay safe in the unpredictable online arena.

Courses cover threats like social engineering; viruses; worms; fraud and spoofing; phishing; understanding the difference between malware vs. spyware; brute-force password cracking; backdoors; keyloggers; botnets and more.
