The Importance of Training: Cybersecurity Awareness like a Human Firewall
Beginning with the obvious, cybersecurity training makes your business more secure. Making your team at large aware of the many threats that exist – from data breaches to ransomware – will keep them from making simple mistakes that could threaten the safety of your organization
- Protects the system against viruses, worms, spyware, and other unwanted programs.
- Protection against data from theft.
- Protects the computer from being hacked.
- Minimizes computer freezing and crashes.
- Gives privacy to users.
- Improved security of cyberspace.
- Increase in cyber defense.
The businesses are always at danger of threat from within the organization. An organization’s security can be easily crashed by an employee or human error, where careless or ignorant staffs are the second assuredly cause of a serious security breach
Promote the responsible sharing of cyber threat intelligence among its members and the industry at large.
In recent years, cyberthreat intelligence has become an important supporting pillar in a mature cybersecurity strategy. When applied well, threat intelligence can help security teams defend against an ever-more sophisticated threat landscape before, during and after attack.
Why Cyber Intelligence Sharing is Important
The ever-accelerating flood of software vulnerabilities and innovative attack techniques leaves increasingly few organizations capable of defending themselves and safeguarding sensitive data in their care. Information-sharing is a critical tool for network defenders because it allows them to avoid the missteps of their peers within the cybersecurity community and to deploy proven defensive measures.
Proactive information-sharing about attacks and defensive mitigations builds resilience across organizations participating within a given trust community, evolving herd immunity against attacks that others have seen within their own networks.
Award Excellence and Promote the adoption of sound measures to fight the 21st century cyber incursions.
With cybercrime damages projected to exceed a staggering $6 trillion by 2021, it’s no wonder banks, tech companies, hospitals, government agencies and just about every other sector are investing in cybersecurity infrastructure to protect their business practices and the millions of customers that trust them with their data.
Cybersecurity team across the globe play an essential role protecting our sensitive data, personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), personal information, intellectual property, data, and governmental and industry information systems from theft and damage attempted. Therefore, ITGCSI takes time to recognize those individuals and team for their excellence.
Because of the massive increase in hacks and hacking attempts, cybersecurity has become an unavoidable topic of discussion in the past several years. Events that occur in the cybersecurity industry can and often do have global consequences and the possibility of catastrophic results, as such, these men and women deserves some recognition of their ingenuity and effort to keep critical infrastructure safe.
