The FBI and Your Cybersecurity: “Don’t Patch the Roof During a Hurricane”


When it comes to understanding cybersecurity, and mitigating the threat of an attack, both the government and the private sector hold key pieces to the puzzle. All too often, though, when a cyber attack occurs, the victim organization is blindsided and left to pick up the pieces.
