CORRECTING and REPLACING Cloud Range Cyber CEO, Debbie Gordon, Unveils Cyber Security Best Practices to Consider in 2020

December 21, 2019 GMT

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 21, 2019--

Please replace the release dated December 20, 2019, with the following corrected version due to multiple revisions.

CLOUD RANGE CYBER CEO, DEBBIE GORDON, UNVEILS CYBER SECURITY BEST PRACTICES TO CONSIDER IN 2020

In 2018, there were 500 million personal records stolen as reported in Security Magazine. Most times, until a breach occurs, advanced cybersecurity measures aren’t considered or planned for, leaving countless files and personal information compromised. Often the nation’s largest companies are left unprotected in a world that is increasingly susceptible to data breaches, sensitive IP theft, and malicious cyber-attacks.

“Few companies have the opportunity to practice defending against cyber-attacks before they occur,” says Debbie Gordon, CEO of Cloud Range Cyber. “Hackers love to keep companies on their toes by remaining one step ahead of security teams. Cybersecurity simulation training should be at the top of the 2020 priority list for all Fortune 1000 companies and especially those handling sensitive customer information. But, that’s a difficult challenge, because according to Cybersecurity Ventures, it’s predicted that by 2021 companies will be left vulnerable with 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity positions.”

Cloud Range Cyber helps leading global organizations prepare to defend against inevitable cyber-attacks. Providing the most advanced simulation-based training available in the market today, cybersecurity teams are able to learn how to detect, respond to, and remediate an infinite number of types of cyber-attacks by using a robust, cloud-based simulation environment. Simulation-based training changes how companies see cyber preparedness by shifting the mindset away from constant technology expenses to developing the people on the last line of defense.

Consider the following security best practices to combat the rising incidents of cybersecurity breaches in 2020 before they happen:

“It’s time to better facilitate stronger and consistent communication among the security operations center (SOC), staff, and executive leaders,” adds Gordon. “The only thing that stands between a threat and an actual breach is the ability to be prepared by giving the people on your cybersecurity team the ability to practice detecting and responding to attacks before the real thing happens. Ensuring your team is prepped for worst case scenarios should not fall through the cracks in 2020, especially as we move toward another decade of unprecedented technological growth.”

Cloud Range Cyber provides a secure, customizable, cloud-based cybersecurity training and simulation platform that proactively prepares SOC teams to defend against cyber-attacks. With Cloud Range Cyber, cyber security teams and incident responders can practice detection, response, and remediation of cyber-attacks in a protected and customized dynamic environment, helping companies reduce cybersecurity risk and overcome the cyber skills gap.
