For businesses and individuals alike, understanding how to protect your information and avoid online scams is vital.
According to CISA, 7 million data records are compromised daily and in 2019 more than $3.5 billion was lost globally to cybercrime. As we know, businesses are often the target of large cyberattacks because cybercriminals often impersonate big name brands with the intention to trick employees into releasing information or allowing access to important files by clicking the wrong link.
With over 5.2 billion internet users (or more than 65 percent of the world’s population), cybersecurity is extremely important. Cybercrime and data breaches do happen. But being educated and knowing how we can each do our part will help protect businesses and individuals.
The goal of the WSWA Cyber Security Resource Center is to provide all of our members with resources, articles, and other practical information on cybersecurity, threats and privacy.
