Herjavec Group Insider #CyberAware

CyberAware Newsletter

President Obama designated October National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. In a climate of persistent and targeted threats, cybersecurity & the protection of information and data is a shared responsibility between the public and private sector, businesses, employees, families, and friends. The National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCSA) has stated that cybersecurity is critical if we are to achieve the potential of an empowered digital society which is capable of leveraging content, community, commerce, and connectivity.

At Herjavec Group, we believe that no organization is immune to the threat of cyber crime. Information security is what we do. We are laser focused on security and our expertise includes consulting & compliance, product delivery, managed services and incident response. We were recently ranked #23 on the Cybersecurity 500, a global ranking of information technology providers, integrators and managed services companies. Herjavec Group was the only security focused managed services company listed within the top 25.

In the spirit of #CyberAware month, Herjavec Group published original content all month long, with a focus on Businesses, PCI, Employee Training, and Malware. In case you missed it, a few highlights from cybersecurity awareness month are below. For more information or to contact a security specialist, please

SEC and Cybersecurity Policy Enforcement

In late September, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) charged an investment advisor for failing to have adequate policies and procedures in place to reinforce the protection of customer data. To date, the Commission’s examinations have been focused on registered broker-dealers but it is believed that the SEC’s development of six target areas for the focus of cybersecurity examinations will lead to a greater standardization across cybersecurity audits, assessments and examinations for businesses of all sizes.

Payment Card Industry (PCI) Awareness Week

We gathered pertinent statistics in order to shine a light on the importance of PCI compliance, governance and risk management, which is imperative for all organizations interacting with cardholder data.
