- [Instructor] Cyber attackers are smarter and malicious code is more virulent than ever before and all indication suggests that the situation will get worse before it gets better. As a cyberist manager, I would expect you to be wondering how much longer will putting all my resources into preventative technologies keep us safe? Well, the annual global cost of cyber crime and data breaches is projected to reach six trillion dollars by the year 2021 and it was only 500 billion dollars back in 2015 so it looks increasingly like everyone's going to get hacked sooner or later.
Fortunately, there's a new way to organize yourself to deal with all this cyber risk and it's known as practicing reasonable cyber security. In this course, you'll learn what it means to practice reasonable cyber security. We'll do that by examining the Federal Trade Commission's position on reasonable cyber security and we'll also see how the NISC cyber security framework can help. Finally, we'll examine how Equifax either was or was not practicing reasonable cyber security before and during its 2017 mega data breach.
