Cybersecurity 


Cyber threats constantly evolve with increasing intensity and complexity. The ability to achieve mission objectives and deliver business functions is increasingly reliant on information systems and the Internet, resulting in increased cyber risks that could cause severe disruption to a company's business functions or operational supply chain, impact reputation or compromise sensitive customer data and intellectual property. 

Organizations will face a host of cyber threats, some with severe impacts that will require security measures that go beyond compliance. Unlike other disaster threats, cyber threats impacts each and every organization with a computer. The days of ignoring the threat have come to an end, each organization must take steps to protect the entire system. 

Safeguard Iowa Partnership is leading an effort to increase awareness about cybersecurity across the community.
