AWARENESS

Today, we are more interconnected than ever before.

Many things in our lives depend on digital technology, which makes cybersecurity one of our country’s most important national security priorities. The U.S. government has spent $130 billion on cybersecurity over the past decade, and has over $19 billion budgeted for cybersecurity in 2018.

We shop from our homes, bank from our smart phones, and engage friends from around the world through social networks. Cybersecurity involves protecting that information by preventing, detecting, and responding to attacks.

Statistics to Consider

Online banking fraud increases 48% year-on-year.
68% of funds lost as a result of cyber attacks are declared unrecoverable.
98% of tested web apps are vulnerable to attack.
59% of employees steal proprietary corporate data when they quit or are fired.
600,000 Facebook accounts are compromised every single day.
More than 285,000 U.S. cybersecurity jobs remain unfilled. The cybersecurity labor shortage is driving corporations to seek outsourced security solutions.
