Changing the way you approach the threat of cyber crime
The prevailing approach to cybersecurity is not working. Although today’s businesses are spending billions of dollars on cybersecurity, online threats are nevertheless compromising organizations at an unprecedented rate.
Because the consensus approach to these threats is flawed: it assumes that cyber crime is a purely technical issue and thereby underestimates the significance of human behavior in the security equation. Even an organization with the most hardened of systems can fall victim to cyber threats if the training of its personnel is not commensurate with the sophistication of its equipment. Furthermore, many contemporary approaches to cyber risk fail to anticipate the rapidly evolving nature of the threat. Unlike in the case of physical security, where a well-protected building today is likely to remain so tomorrow, the cyber threat landscape is rapidly changing – an organization’s security status can rapidly shift from “well-protected” to “wide-open” in a matter of months. This is why Watsec has made employee security training and ongoing network assessments core components of its cyber risk management packages.
Based at the University of Waterloo’s David Johnston Research + Technology Park, Watsec is transforming the approach to traditional cyber risk management for companies world-wide. Our unique program delivers practical plans for protecting organizations of any size from a growing global menace.
