What is cybersecurity and why is it so important?
Cybersecurity involves the protection of information systems from theft or damage to hardware, software, and to the information on them, as well as from disruption or misdirection of the services they provide. What most businesses often overlook is that cybersecurity also includes people, policy and practice. Access to/sharing threat information is another way to increase cybersecurity posture.
The National Cyber Exchange makes threat information sharing possible between their constituents.
What is the NCX?
