Week 3 – Recognizing and Combating Cybercrime

Cybersecurity must be viewed as a ‘top-down’ concern; when the executive team takes the time to highlight its Cyber Risk Management Program internally, team members are far more likely to recognize the significance of cyber-hygiene.  Viewed holistically, the entire company is more secure. Layer 8 Security preaches the significance of each individual’s on-line behavior as a critical aspect of producing a resilient team.

As technology advances, the impact of cybercrime is becoming more costly and frequent.  Law enforcement, government, industry, and individual citizens all play a vital role in mitigating adverse impact to our schools, communities, and personal well-being. Incidents ensue through every day ‘phishing’ emails masked behind trusted sources, in infected websites that unknowingly capture personal information when entered, and as persuasive links that lock files until a ransom is paid.  Week 3 focuses on the signs of criminal intent through technology and what individuals can do to detect and prevent cybercrime.

Does your Company have a clear directive, coming from the top, that every member of the team must be cyber-vigilant?  Does your Company provide cyber-hygiene training?  There is no better time to drive the point home than now.  Ask Layer 8 Security to share our process with you.
