Cyber Security Training is more important now than it has ever been. Data breaches and hacking may
sound unlikely, but cyber-attacks occur daily. In many cases, businesses are unprepared, because
management does not understand the risk. Many companies believe they will not be a target of an
attack. The truth is that all governments and companies must prepare for a cyber-attack by having an
individual or team in place to protect from such an attack.
Threats to organizations include ransomware attacks and hacking, but human error also plays a role. Limiting the threat to your organization and creating a culture of security awareness are key.
