Newsletter provides insights into latest cybersecurity-related news, threats, and vulnerabilities
Pinkerton, the leading global provider of comprehensive risk management services, has launched a brand new monthly newsletter dedicated to providing the business community with pertinent news about global cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities. Pinkerton President Jack Zahran made the announcement. The subscription-based newsletter, titled “Pinkerton Cybersecurity Briefing,” is a digital monthly publication. While content will vary from month to month based on the emergence of new cyber threats, content will regularly focus on topics like malware and data breaches, mobile devices and apps, global cyber security threats and identity and intellectual property theft. The briefing dives into details surrounding each specific threat and gives a recommendation on how companies can protect themselves and their clients from attacks. “Cyber threats continue to rise and be a major cause for concern at a time when we are more connected digitally than ever before and leverage digital solutions—like the cloud—to store and protect critical information,” said Zahran. “Knowledge is power, and we want to arm our clients with the necessary tools and information to safely navigate the cybersecurity landscape. By distributing this cybersecurity briefing, we hope to provide warnings about common attacks and steps companies can take to recover quickly and come back stronger should their systems be infiltrated.” According to sources from the Utah Department of Safety Cyber-Crimes Division, cyber attacks are becoming increasingly more common, with business losses hitting $3 trillion and expected to climb to $6 trillion by 2021. The majority of the victims are small companies with fewer than 1,000 employees, which can magnify the effects of cybersecurity breaches. In 2016, companies spent $2.5 billion in cyber-insurance, recognizing the importance of investing in a reliable cybersecurity service. Companies around the world are taking steps to protect their valuable information from potential intrusions. To subscribe to the Cyber Security Briefing, click here.
