(Recorded Webinar) Mastering Organizational Cybersecurity: From Essentials to the NIST Framework

Duration: 60 minutes
Recorded on: 10/19/2023

With the world becoming more connected every single day, cybersecurity is becoming increasingly more important. Remote work, cloud-based software, interdependent systems, and the growth of artificial intelligence – all of these make our lives easier. Unfortunately, the risks (regulatory, financial, reputational, operational) associated with the rapidly evolving digital environments grow exponentially as well and cannot be ignored. How does an organization develop an actionable framework of organizational cybersecurity practices? Mitigating cyber risks within your organization calls for a grasp of fundamental cybersecurity principles.

In this training, the presenters will dive into the core principles of safeguarding your organizational digital landscape. Additionally, we will introduce the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, a set of guidelines for mitigating organizational cybersecurity risks, explain its structure and discuss why an organization may want to consider its adoption.
