October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. With the pandemic affecting in-person office hours and many employees transitioning to working remotely, companies are feeling overwhelmed with applications and infrastructure related to going digital. A recent Mimecast study shows there has been a 64% increase in cyberthreats in 2019 and 2020. Additionally, emails are a front door to a wide range of attacks, with many uneducated employees clicking on suspicious links and compromising confidential files or information. Jeremy Ventura of Mimecast and Chris Pierdominici of RapidScale share their insight and expertise on how to protect all-digital means of communication. 

Jeremy is a Senior Security Strategist at Mimecast, an email security platform provider. He listens to the needs of customers and helps them evaluate their security environment, and takes user feedback to the product team. Chris is the Senior Product Marketing Manager at RapidScale, a managed cloud service provider for Cox Business. He works as the bridge between the product team and greater marketplace in content creation. Both are well-versed in different aspects of cybersecurity and tech experience. 

Jeremy and Chris share the importance of educating company employees with security fundamentals. Cybercriminals are taking advantage of companies transitioning online and lacking security awareness. They recommend providing frequent and regular training to mitigate risk and looking into short/long-term security investments. Mimecast Cybergraph uses pattern recognition to identify email threats, and RapidScale provides extra IT support and expertise in cloud consulting.

Listen to Jeremy and Chris as they share their knowledge on cybersecurity, how to improve organizational efforts toward ransomware attacks, and how Mimecast and RapidScale are helping users protect themselves and their work.
