Biweekly Newsletter- Cybersecurity

Following up our last biweekly newsletter on entrepreneurship, we will be focusing this newsletter on cyber security. Cybersecurity is crucial to all firms, but is often overlooked by small to mid-size companies.

Below are multiple articles related to cybersecurity:

-Many people hear horror stories of extreme data breaches, yet few people are doing anything about it. In Christopher Mele’s article titled “Data Breaches Keep Happening. So Why Don’t You Do Something?” he discusses why many people have still not taken the initiative to prevent data breaches.

-Many small companies do not place a strong emphasis on cybersecurity and treat it merely as a small part of the IT department. Andrew Rinaldi discusses the steps small businesses should take to protect their company, in his article titled, “The Small Business Case for a Culture of Cyber Security.”

-Some states have added laws that require state agencies to complete a cybersecurity assessment every couple of years. Zack Quaintance’s article “Unrelenting Threats Inspire a New Model in Texas” explains Texas’s new cybersecurity bill.
