What is Cybersecurity Hygiene, and How Do I Implement It?
Recording Date: September 2021
Cybersecurity hygiene is a set of basic practices that can be taken by all personnel to protect the health of hardware and software of computer-based systems. Just as traditional hygiene measures are needed to limit the spread of viruses and disease, cybersecurity hygiene is needed to limit the spread of computer viruses and cybersecurity attacks. Recent studies have shown that well over half of all automation systems have experienced a damaging cybersecurity incident in the last two years. To better protect automation systems against these types of incidents, cybersecurity hygiene is a critical first step. This webinar will provide a deeper look into the importance of cybersecurity hygiene as well as provide actionable steps for improving cybersecurity hygiene within your organization.
