Cybersecurity: Protecting Information in the Age of the Internet of Things


Information is the currency of criminal enterprise. The varying value of personal, corporate, and government information drives the level of cybersecurity required around every piece of information and each type of information transaction. Many organizations are struggling to clean up their cyber hygiene, or to even understand the liability they have for the protection of the information they possess. This discussion will review current cybersecurity guidance and some freely available means of measuring, monitoring, and reporting upon organizational cybersecurity.
