In today’s reality, a business is only as good as its cybersecurity. Scott examines what is missed and overlooked in the value that security can bring to an organization by clarifying a couple of myths. With the many common myths out there, Scott emphasizes the importance of staying alert, ready and engaged to respond to the cybersecurity needs of your organization. Scott further discusses the three key elements that provide value towards your organization’s cybersecurity including:
