Cybersecurity is a term that means different things to different people. Today's increasingly digital and online world means that more information is being stored and shared in ways that make it easier for criminals to exploit weaknesses in the protections that exist currently. From email scams and phishing to social engineering and business email compromise, there are cybersecurity risks for our personal data as well as for the data we control as professionals in the workplace.
Nearly every day there is another story about a breach that exposes valuable information from a corporation, agency or group of people. Some of the biggest names in the world have been impacted, including Equifax, Target, Yahoo, Sony PlayStation, Uber, Home Depot, TJX Companies and more.
