What Is Cybersecurity?

Video Description

While the Internet has revolutionized commerce, its conveniences and uses come at the price of new perils. Without an online defense, any company and its customers can become victims of fraud, identity theft, data theft and property damage. Creating and implementing an effective online security plan is vital in keeping a business safe, but how can the non-technical business manager participate in such planning without the language and understanding required to do so? In this course, Emmanuel Henri explores the basics of cybersecurity from a layman's perspective. He discusses what cybersecurity is and why it's important; he details the conversations managers must have with their teams to set the proper security initiatives and hire the proper staff; he explores the cybersecurity resources managers can easily tap into; and finishes by demonstrating the ways cybersecurity measures are applied in real life.
