Cybersecurity | Training, Strategies, and Solutions


Today, every organization survives and thrives with data — accessing, storing, working with, and benefiting from the information. From spreadsheets and payment processing to contact centers and video conferencing, when the network goes down things grind to a halt, or worse. Cyberattacks. Data breaches. These costly events can disrupt, hurt reputations, and take weeks, months, or even years to recover from. Every organization needs to assume they are the next target, and work to avoid, minimize impact and be prepared to respond.

Where the Challenges, and Vulnerabilities, Exist


90% of threats come from within an organization. Policies, procedures, and training help staff be aware and become your number one defense from threats. Organizations should have written procedures, physical security, and authorization control in place with regular reviews to ensure they stay top of mind.


When ideas cross over into regimented routines, you have a well-defined process — both as documents, management systems, and repeatable/testable policies. Examples can include how you interact with vendors/outside parties (ensuring they follow cyberhygiene practices), drills, audits, and response plans.


Turn potential weaknesses into strengths. Secure networks, systems, and information through the use of protocols, Antivirus solutions, firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and regular software updates/patches while also implementing functional testing, vulnerability scans, and penetration tests.
