Cybersecurity for your business might seem straightforward but it's actually composed of many moving parts. This talk will show you the areas that every business needs to address and will provide you with security controls to cover them all.
It will start with important behind-the-scenes areas that must be addressed first (like passwords, device security, and training), will move on to common outward-facing risk areas (including email, website, and network security), and will finish with a brief look at more advanced areas to work on once the fundamentals are covered.
Threats: Phishing, ransomware, etc.
Passwords, password managers
Two-factor authentication (2FA/MFA)
Device security [hardening]
User awareness training
Network security for devices and routers
Cloud storage and other services security
Governance, policies, risk management, frameworks, etc.
