Welcome to The Ultimate Guide To Cybersecurity! Our goal is to help you define cybersecurity and give you the tools to implement best practices and employee training that will help protect your organization from cyber threats like ransomware attacks, phishing scams, and malware.
Why Is Cybersecurity Important?
Working from home as a result of COVID-19 restrictions has caused a massive increase in cyber attacks since the end of 2019. As the restrictions continue to be lifted across the United Sates, many businesses are staying remote or adopting some form of hybrid set up. No matter what your company ends up doing, cybersecurity is more important than ever.
Over 17 million COVID-related malware attacks in 2020
Mobile phishing attempts have increased by 37% since 2019
Ransomware attacks have skyrocketed to a 300% increase over the last year

With some highly notable attacks recently like the SolarWinds data breach and the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack, the importance of strong cybersecurity tools and best practices has made it all the way to the top with The White House releasing an executive order on cybersecurity.
Regardless of your company’s size, structure, industry, or in-house/at-home situation, protecting your organization from cyber threats needs to be a top priority. Great cybersecurity is a combination of hardware, data backups, best practices, and employee training.
