Cybersecurity Fundamentals

The last couple of years (2020 & 2021) were particularly hard years for many organizations as it relate to cybersecurity. So many attacks in so many forms ranging from internal ones focused on getting specific data / information to highly organized ones focused on disrupting operations all the way to state sponsored ones focus on creating disruption and Kaos across the field. We have seen a lot in every form and it is unsettling for sure.

Now more than ever, everyone needs to have a basic understanding of cybersecurity, and how we can help protect ourselves from theft and disruption.
