CYBER24 season 2 logo

The U.S. takes military action against Iran and suddenly cybersecurity advocates don’t seem like they’re crying wolf. 

Experts and advocates have been saying for years that the time has come for the U.S. in both the private and public sectors to take their cybersecurity measures seriously and, suddenly, at the beginning of 2020, everyone seemed to begin to understand why. 

So, what does the potential of a cyberattack from Iran mean to your business? What about your state or local government? We dig in on that question on this episode of CYBER24, presented by VLCM. 

We also look back at 2019, which is now being called “the year of ransomware.”  A new report puts a hefty price tag on U.S. businesses that found themselves locked out of critical systems last year. We discuss why it’s a trend that will only accelerate this year.
