These days, any business or individual wishing to make an impact must have a strong online presence. Aspiring artists, shrewd politicians, huge corporations, and start-ups alike

strive to increase revenue, streamline business processes, and raise visibility through outward-facing websites, engagement with social media, and many other online activities. A meaningful online presence requires you to think deeply about how to protect yourself from digital risk.

Online engagement with your audience brings unwanted attention from threat actors of all sorts: financially motivated cybercriminals, competitors trying to obtain your secrets, and hacktivists who want to undermine your efforts. Some of them will succeed in capturing proprietary information.
