The current state of cybersecurity is a rapidly evolving threat landscape that presents new challenges for organizations of all sizes and types.

Cyberattacks are becoming more frequent, sophisticated, and damaging, with ransomware and other types of threats posing significant risks to businesses and individuals alike. No organization is immune to the challenges these risks pose, and all businesses must work to protect themselves.

What are the most significant cybersecurity threats affecting businesses today? How can organizations adapt to protect themselves? How can organizations leverage new technologies to protect themselves? What does the future of cybersecurity look like?

New Threats to Everyday Devices Breakout

As the devices and systems we use to conduct our businesses, maintain our health, and live our everyday lives continue to become more connected, the risk of cyber-attacks targeting these tools is on the rise.

From medical devices to power grids, IOT connected systems and devices are the new frontier for cybercriminals. Not only can this upset daily life—it also has serious implications for the business communities that rely on these everyday tools.

How can organizations protect their devices and systems from these kinds of threats? What do these threats look like compared to cybersecurity threats of the past? How does response planning need to change and adapt?

Upskilling for Security Breakout

As a variety of threats loom in today’s digital landscape, it has become increasingly crucial for organizations to upskill their employees to respond effectively to security threats.

By investing in employee training programs, organizations can improve their overall security posture, minimize risks, and protect their assets from cyber attacks. A well-trained workforce can also help to identify potential vulnerabilities and mitigate risks before they become major issues, which can save time and resources in the long run.

But where should organizations begin with these trainings? Can employees be expected to navigate this complex system? How CISOs and other security leaders emphasize the importance of upskilling to stakeholders?
