Non-Technical Guide to Cybersecurity

Non-Technical Guide to Cyber Risk

Hello Everyone. There is a new resource for the non-technical people who read my posts that is wonderfully simple.

I have no affiliation with this organization.

It appears as though they are gathering leads to get the resource but, it is worth it. If you don’t know anything about cyber-security or cyber-risk UpGuard has done a great job of breaking it down for you in their free e-book. Also, it’s FREE so the price is right.

I recommend that you check it out, I don’t know how they will contact you, but I am sure they will. What you do from there is up to you. However, they are definitely providing knowledge for the non-technical person that is first class.

Here is their blurb and a link to the page on their website where you can down load the non-technical guide.

You don’t need to be an IT security expert to grasp the fundamentals of cyber-risk. Learn foundational knowledge and language for understanding and managing cyber-risk in today’s digital landscape.

• The Language of Cyber Risk
• Common Cyber Threats
• New Risk Models for Digitized Firms


This is the price tag of technological innovation:

There are 300 data breaches every minute and almost 1 million new malware threats released every day. If this doesn’t sound alarm bells, you’ve been desensitized by all of the breaches splashed across the headlines. However, for security professionals and vigilant non-technical consumers, the surge in attacks is proof cyber-crime is out of control.

In response to failing security measures, organizations are turning to new risk models for managing cyber-threats. Mass digitization has brought enterprises into uncharted waters. When it comes to securing business assets against unknown threats, concepts like cyber-resilience are taking root. It’s strategies are resonating with forward-thinking enterprises. As well as instruments for measuring and mitigating cyber-risk like reputation scoring and cyber-insurance, respectively.

The purpose of this guide is to equip non-technical readers with the foundational knowledge and language for understanding cyber-risk. No specialized knowledge in network administration or IT security is presumed. Upon completion, readers should have enough knowledge to carry on a conversation regarding cyber-security and risk.

I hope this resource is helpful for your business. However, if you still have questions after this please feel free to send me a message via the Contact Me page and I will be glad to help you out in any way that I can.
