Cybersecurity is a term we are all familiar with, however the typical information about cybersecurity is very confusing and therefore most people and companies don’t take practical steps to better understand and protect themselves from cyber attack. While there are many ways to discuss cybersecurity one easier way is to understand that it is now a risk to companies like many other risks including physical theft or damage or man-made or natural disasters. Businesses mitigate risks everyday to protect themselves and their hard won successes. Cybersecurity should be viewed as a similar risk and companies should take similar steps to protect themselves. This presentation will focus on a basic understanding of cybersecurity risks and practical ways to protect companies from these risks. I will define cybersecurity and associated risks, discuss practical methods to mitigate these risks, and give examples from case studies so the information can be understood in applied settings.
