Companies have been beaten for the past two years as threat actors exploited any vulnerabilities they could find. This has opened up a huge cybersecurity gap that businesses are working to fill. Kaseya has been at the forefront of this fight against cybercriminals by helping businesses with the right strategies, solutions and ideas to keep their businesses safe.
A number of Connect IT events focus on cybersecurity topics as part of our efforts to help businesses strengthen their security. The White House task force, Stanford University and most of the FIU cybersecurity professors will offer cybersecurity training, workshops and certifications to give attendees a head start against the bad guys.
