Cybersecurity: Not Just For Tech People Anymore!


Cybersecurity is no longer a luxury for agencies and organizations. The statistics are daunting:

  • Last year, a hacker attack occurred every 39 seconds.
  • Over 64% of companies have experienced web-based attacks.
  • The average cost of a data breach for small businesses alone is nearly $4 million.

And it’s getting worse. Since COVID-19, the FBI reported a 300% increase in reported cybercrimes.

Organizations and agencies need to act – and act now. Understanding the enemy and knowing what can be done to avoid the loss of valuable data, funds and reputation goes a long way to repelling cybercrime.

With this in mind, Tonex can help. We offer over five dozen cybersecurity courses to assist your organization, agency or business in assimilating a cybersecurity plan that works.

What is cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks and programs from digital attacks.

Who needs to worry about data security?

Data security should be top of mind for all companies because not only is there the significant financial cost of dealing with a data breach, but there is also collateral damage like the loss of customer trust. More than half of small businesses that experience a cyber-attack never recover.

Why do I need to worry about data security?

Cybersecurity protects all categories of data from theft and damage. This includes sensitive data, personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), personal information, intellectual property and governmental and industry information systems.

What is data compliance?

Data compliance is the practice of ensuring that sensitive data is organized and managed in such a way as to enable organizations to meet enterprise business rules along with legal and governmental regulations. Additionally, by law, companies that work with individuals’ personal information are responsible for protecting that personal data.

What is a data breach?

Data breaches are security incidents where information is accessed, stolen, and used by a cybercriminal without authorization.

Are there best cybersecurity practices for an organization?

Strong cybersecurity policies and procedures can save millions of dollars for organizations. It does require an initial investment to set up a stable network and protect against intrusions. Read our cybersecurity training topics.

Which industries are most vulnerable to cyber-attacks?

Financial services have 352,771 exposed sensitive files on average while healthcare, pharma and biotech have 113,491 files on average — the highest when comparing industries.

Is it really possible to stay safe online?

Yes. Learn basic internet safety rules and what not to do online. Also consider using a secure VPN connection.

Do organizations need to worry about remote workers and cyber-attacks?

Yes. During the COVID-19 pandemic, hackers have found a new way to invade corporate computer systems through the devices of employees who are working at home.

Are there certain emails that should raise red flags?

The top malicious email attachment types are .doc and .dot which make up 37%, the next highest is .exe at 19.5%. About 94% of malware is delivered by email.

How has the advent of 5G changed cybersecurity?

As a result of 5G increasing the bandwidth of connected devices, IoT devices have become more vulnerable to cyber-attacks.

What are some recommended cybersecurity courses for business organizations?

Since 1993, Tonex has been offering cybersecurity training, courses and seminars worldwide to individuals, organizations and agencies. Tonex instructors are experts in their field with real-world experience.
