With a record number of cyberattacks making national news, cybersecurity is top-of-mind for many business executives. Cyberattacks are becoming more complex, with new and improved malicious software evading detection systems and disabling or hindering business operations for organizations across the globe. An effective cybersecurity strategy begins with an understanding of the threat landscape, but it is only the first step. You must take proactive measures to ensure your organization is prepared for the inevitability of facing cyberthreats.
Here are five resources to help elevate your cybersecurity efforts.

2. Learn How to Prevent Data Loss in the Cloud
Migrating to the cloud can save you money and time—but those benefits disappear if your data isn’t secure, private and available when you want it to ensure operational continuance of your business. IT leaders must keep cloud data confidential and protect its integrity, ensuring no one can change it. One big mistake IT leaders make when they move to the cloud is assuming that cloud providers are securing their data, and subsequently, they believe they can relinquish their responsibility or accountability for it.
According to ConvergeOne Principal Cybersecurity Consultant Vito Nozza, that couldn't be further from the truth. In this thought leadership article, he shares six tips that will help IT leaders protect data within the cloud. Read the thought leadership article now.

4. Read ConvergeOne's 23 Cybersecurity Tips for 2023 White Paper
Organizations are more vulnerable than ever to cyberattacks. Many cyberattacks involve ransomware, a form of malicious software or malware, designed to deny access to a computer system or data until a ransom is paid and a decryption key (commonly called a decryptor) is given to the victim. Ransomware can spread in multiple ways, but most typically, through phishing emails or by unknowingly visiting an infected website. Ransomware can be catastrophic to your organization, preventing critical information and systems from being accessed. You must build a cyber-aware culture within your organization in order to protect your information and people from cyberattacks.
