Ever wondered what other businesses are doing to protect their organizations from cyber threats? Well, no need to wonder any longer…we’ve done all the work for you! We recently conducted a survey of over 200 people within the field regarding the cyber security practices in their workplace, and discovered some interesting facts. Most companies indicate that defending against phishing and social engineering attacks is priority and express deep concern about web-facing applications. However, though these companies are concerned about security breaches, they say they know exactly what to do in the face of a cyber incident. Our survey features over 21 in-depth insights about cyber security practices within the workplace. Want more information?

Do you understand the impact of digital technology on business? Once stored entirely on paper, business information, business accounts and business activities are now pretty much all in digital form.

What results is a real-life digital crime scene, but unlike a “physical” crime scene, retracing digital steps can be extremely tricky. This where Computer Forensics Analysts are called in: they are responsible for decoding a digital crime scene, piecing together digital forensics information to solve a mystery.
