The U.S. National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) has begun distributing informative materials ranging from brochures to videos to privately held companies around the country promoting increased awareness of rising cybersecurity threats from nation-state actors.
Commenting on the news is Javvad Malik, security advocate at AlienVault:
“Without understanding the threat landscape, it is difficult to come up with a suitable defence plan. Which is why it is great to see NCSC raising awareness of the threats which many companies face.
Combine this raised awareness with greater collaboration and threat data sharing, and companies can create a solid strategy on being able to defend, detect, and recover from cyber attacks.”
