Gone phishing: Hackers aren’t taking a break — and neither should you

The personal information of millions of Americans were exposed due to data breaches in 2019, and Google’s Threat Analysis Group (TAG) reported over 40,000 nation-state hacking attacks in the last year alone. In recent weeks U.S. government agencies and medical institutions leading the COVID-19 pandemic response experienced cyberattack spikes.

Clearly businesses and public institutions are in the crosshairs of opportunistic and professional hackers. What can you as your organization’s professional communicator do to help protect your organization?

Angela Haun and Brad Culp join The Business Communicators for an in-depth discussion on digital security and how communicators play a crucial role in the cyber world. This episode focuses on COVID-19 and medical espionage, the importance of staying vigilant while working remotely, how to create relatable content for your stakeholders and key tips on staying cyber secure.
