How Cyber Aware Is Your Company?

by | Sep 29, 2017

Explore Workplace Issues, Predictions for Tomorrow, Careers and Protecting Infrastructure

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), and during the next five weeks, Cybernance will explore issues around cybersecurity and how to create a cyber conscious culture in your organization. Never has the need for cybersecurity awareness been higher. In recent months, we’ve seen unparalleled high-profile cyber breaches that have wreaked havoc not only in companies, but also in entire nations. Nothing has been bigger than the Equifax breach, reaching nearly every household in the U.S.

The Equifax breach comes at a time when both private enterprises and government have been spurred to act  – and act now.  The recently signed cybersecurity executive order and New York’s Department of Finance regulations (DFS) show how both the private and public sectors need to elevate cybersecurity measures.  The status quo of cyber protection is simply no longer acceptable.  Every CEO, CISO and Agency Head in every organization will need to bring their A-game in best practices for cybersecurity.

Cybernance is making NCSAM a platform to talk about the serious issues in organizational security, and how three internal things in any organization – People, Policy, and Process – have a greater affect on your overall cybersecurity resilience than anything else you can do today. In October, we will introduce to you industry influencers and cyber thought leaders through published articles and related content on our website and through social media.
