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?

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.
