        ✔️ Clearly Defined Security The foundation of your security strategy must be rooted in your organization's security goals and objectives. ...

        ✔️ Communication with Executives and Key ...

        ✔️ Proactive Threat Management.

  • Why do I need to worry about information security?

    The threats are real – and it’s not some shady character with a gray hooded sweatshirt looking at scrolling lines of green code. From a volume standpoint, it’s largely automated and in a general broadcast to large swaths of the Internet (although the most significant threats are targeted).  Cisco Talos has hard statistics on the fact that roughly 85% of all email traversing the Internet is spam – either marketing or malware.  The spam filters do a good job at catching and stopping that 85% but some are bound to go unnoticed and pass through to your users.

  • What are the biggest cybersecurity threats right now?

    Without question, wire transfer fraud and ransomware headline the most critical threats facing organizations.

    Wire transfer fraud occurs when a manual bank transfer occurs to transfer funds between entities.  Attackers compromise an organization’s email system and start looking for finance and payment-related employees. Our Incident Response team sees attackers lurk in the email for months waiting for a payment to compromise. Then the two entities exchange emails with payment info, they will insert a second email making it seem like there was a transcription error and to please use the new account number (or take the exchanged credentials and attack the bank account directly).  They then divert the transferred money out of the fake destination before anyone notices.  There are other flavors of this type of attack, but this example demonstrates the need for authenticated verification of wire transfers that use multiple mechanisms to prevent this type of theft.

Why security awareness training to your C-level executive

Aspire-IT-Executive Image

As a C-level executive member you need to understand adequate about cyber security so you can have a confident conversation with your experts. These days cyber Security is everyone’s problem. With cybercrime damages expected $6 trillion by 2021, it is hardly surprising that cybersecurity has become a C-level executive and board-level hot topic now a days. The C-level executive members are responsible for implementing of a sound cyber security program, including the overall guidance and direction of setting a cultural value related to risk awareness, policy and strategy, defining risk profile and creating security initiatives and priorities for organization.

The Cybersecurity Threat in the C-Level

CEOs the greatest cybersecurity threat to the enterprise

You’ve been hacked, and it’s generating big headlines. What happens next, now that your board and the media are asking who’s going to pay? If history is our guide, it’s probably your CEO; in the event of a major breach, the buck usually stops with your top guy.

If you’re like many CEOs we meet, you assume cyber risks are best left to the experts and you have these experts in your IT and cybersecurity departments.

But the reality is that no amount of delegation will shield you from the personal consequences of a cyberattack. Following a breach, parties whose information is stolen, or whose lives are otherwise impacted, look for someone to blame. And they don’t look to your technical experts or security vendors. Upset politicians and incited media don’t blame a faulty firewall.

They look at you, the CEO. And they don’t care who you put in charge of cybersecurity.

Why is cybersecurity important to the C-level executive? 

Aspire-IT-Executive Image

Cybersecurity is no longer something that only impacts your IT department or Information Security team. When a security incident hits an organization, it can cost USD 3.92 million – this being the average cost of a cyber-attack in 2019. Data breaches can cause devastating financial losses and affect an organization’s reputation for years. Many of the costs incurred by a security incident are indefinable. Loss of brand loyalty, for example, is difficult to qualify in the long term and costly to reinstate, once lost.

Being a C-level executive member, you will be targeted always

Senior executives, C-level executive or stakeholders in organizations are regularly the target of cyber-attack by cyber-criminal, because of their access to valuable assets and also their influence within the organization.

Implementing cyber security awareness program, security policies will help to mitigate cyber risk. It is critical that C-level executive members and stakeholders must understand and follow their organization’s cyber security policies, so that when a cyber-criminal tries to manipulate them, staff can identify that something is unusual.

It takes time to educate the C-level executive of your company. You need to take action. You can’t wait for actions to be taken

Aspire-IT-Executive Image

Aspire Tech designed an effective training for C-level executive members and it very simple, short and conducted on an annual or semiannual basis. Once they are properly trained (and we mean every member of the C-level executive), they can then align the rest of the business.

  • Present easy-to-understand industry and business-specific cyber-security
    threats and risk management strategies

Security awareness training top down

The fix for modern cybersecurity issues is about people as much as it is about technology. Your C-level executive, board and stakeholder must become a catalyst for change by setting the tone for security at the top. As regulations tighten up on the C-level executive members around duty of care, now is the perfect time to involve security awareness training to your board. In fact, the tone for cybersecurity awareness must begin at the top.

How can you involve security awareness to your C-level executive members?

Aspire-IT-Executive Image

In a 2016 Ponemon Institute study, which looked at risk management, they found that 63% of executives felt they did not have accountability or responsibility for cyber security. The study also found that 50% of respondents felt that risk management was not aligned with business goals and that C-level executive were not engaged in the process. There needs to be a shift in perception to accommodate a shift in strategy to then mitigate cyber-risk.

Who should take this course?

The course is designed for c-level member in the organization. So, all you guys out there which include those whose designations start with “Chief” like CFO, CIO, CTO, CFO, CMO, COO, and CFO.

Security Awareness Training is more important now than it has ever been. Data breaches and hacking may sound unlikely, but cyber-attacks occur daily. In many cases, businesses are unprepared, because management does not understand the risk. Many companies believe they will not be the target of an attack. The truth is that all companies must prepare for a cyber-attack by having an individual or team in place to protect from such an attack.
