Cybersecurity threats are on the rise. As a leader, you need to be prepared to keep your organization safe. Companies are investing an unprecedented amount of money to keep their data and assets safe, yet cyberattacks are on the rise--and the problem is worsening. No amount of technology, resources, or policies will reverse this trend. Only sound governance, originating with the board, can turn the tide. Protection against cyberattacks can't be treated as a problem solely belonging to an IT or cybersecurity department. It needs to cast a wide and impenetrable net that covers everything an organization does--from its business operations, models, and strategies to its products and intellectual property. And boards are in the best position to oversee the needed changes to strategy and hold their companies accountable. Not surprisingly, many boards aren't prepared to assume this responsibility. In A Leader's Guide to Cybersecurity, Thomas Parenty and Jack Domet, who have spent over three decades in the field, present a timely, clear-eyed, and actionable framework that will empower senior executives and board members to become stewards of their companies' cybersecurity activities. This includes: Understanding cyber risks and how best to control them Planning and preparing for a crisis--and leading in its aftermath Making cybersecurity a companywide initiative and responsibility Drawing attention to the nontechnical dynamics that influence the effectiveness of cybersecurity measures Aligning the board, executive leadership, and cybersecurity teams on priorities Filled with tools, best practices, and strategies, A Leader's Guide to Cybersecurity will help boards navigate this seemingly daunting but extremely necessary transition.

Since 2017 ,the global cyber arena has been occasionally hit by unprecedented cyber-crimes, with many data breaches, ransomware attacks, and even sophisticated state-sponsored cyber-attacks. The pace of cybersecurity growth is likely to continue in the upcoming years as industries invest heavily in security solutions to meet the ever-expanding range of threats and requirements. Nearly 68 per cent of business leaders agree global cybersecurity threats are on the rise. Cybercrimes are now an everyday concern for businesses. Cybersecurity statistics indicate a significant rise in data breaches and hacking, most of which involve workplace devices. Many organizations have poor security practices, making them vulnerable to cyber threats. And this is exacerbated by the presence of a global pandemic. Look at some cybersecurity industry statistics, so you’ll know the state of today’s cybersecurity and why you need to gear up your efforts to protect your systems: The global cybersecurity market is expected to be worth $352.25 billion, with an annual growth rate of 14.5%, by 2026 (Mordor Intelligence, 2020). Losses from cybercrime damages are expected to reach $6 trillion by 2021 (Cybercrime Magazine, 2020). Cybercrimes cost the world nearly $600 billion each year, equivalent to 0.8% of the global GDP (Mordor Intelligence, 2020). Ransomware damage worldwide is expected to reach $21 billion by 2021 (Cybersecurity Ventures, 2021). The Cisco Cyber Security Reports show that 50 percent of large organizations with a workforce of more than 10,000 spend at least $1 million on security every year. The report also found that 43 percent spend between $250,000 and $999,999, while 7 percent spend less than $250,000. The volume of cybersecurity data involving cybercrimes worldwide will continue to grow exponentially. Cybercriminals will continue with their shadowy ways of coming up with novel and more sophisticated ways of attacking the vulnerabilities of digital systems, including typical business software applications. Everyone should proactively always protect his or her information. So, here we are with our Awesome course - Cyber Security Mastery Training Guide This guide will educate you about the system and data security in the COVID era, the different types of hacking, phishing attacks, malware, ransomware, and tips to prevent them.
