Cyber security is a growing concern for small business owners.
In 2012, around 40 percent of data breaches occurred at companies with fewer than 1,000 employees, according to Verizon’s 2013 Data Breach Investigations Report.
That’s one of the reasons why New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie recently established New Jersey’s Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Cell.
“In the digital age, we all must balance growing Internet dependencies with good cyber security practices while maintaining keen awareness of the latest threats,” writes Assemblyman Jon Bramnick in a recent newsletter. “Whether it’s protecting your own network or safeguarding your customer’s data, none of us can afford to ignore digital risks.”
The NJCCIC is the State’s one-stop shop for cybersecurity information sharing, threat analysis and incident reporting.
“The cybersecurity outfit will allow [the state] to bridge the information and intelligence divide between New Jersey’s public and private sectors,” says Chris Rodriguez, Director, NJ Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness.
