Cybersecurity: it’s a priority for everybody these days. Whether you’re checking your work email on your own device, or your organization is thinking about moving services to the cloud, security is on everyone’s mind. And rightfully so. In 2013, 46,605 breaches of federal computer networks occurred. And between 2006 and 2012, cyberthreats increased by 782%. (No, that’s not a typo.) There’s a lot going on in the world of cybersecurity and in this training session, we’re looking to cover a good portion of it. Sign up to hear five, 10-minute lightning cyber sessions from government experts.
