On this episode of Cybersound, join Jason, Steve, and Matt to discuss the rise of the mobile scam and what you need to know to keep your data safe.

Dark Web 101

Listen for information and gain education on what you need to know about the Dark Web so you can stay protected.

Today on Cybersound, Jason, Steve, and Matt set out to demystify the Dark Web and the Deep Web. Is that possible? Did you know there was a difference?

Don’t miss this chat and stay prepared in 2022.
In this episode of CybersoundTM, Jason Pufahl, Steve Maresca, and Matt Fusaro discuss the stringent parameters on insurance policy renewals, particularly dealing with #cybersecurity.

The Main Frame Connecticut Public Act 21-119

A Year In Review Part 1

Managing service providers and general technology support staff evolved to a hybrid workplace in 2021. Many companies had to adapt to new working environments, which appears to be the new normal. Now, tech support has to manage these remote workstations. Sounds easy, but from encrypting cloud software to protecting the staff from ransomware, today’s IT manager has more to consider to optimize the business for efficiency and productivity.
Join Jason, Steve, and Matt as they look back on how organizations are adjusting to a hybrid workforce and the technical concerns that pose to today’s workforce.

Ransomware Attack: The First 48

If your organization has not been a victim of ransomware, be thankful but remain aware. When you least expect it, someone could click on the wrong link or download the wrong file, and your entire company will be held hostage to the highest bidder.
