Capsicum Group Announces New Cybersecurity and Privacy Training Service


Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/07/2015 -- Capsicum Group, one of the leading names in cybersecurity, is a Philadelphia-based consulting firm made up of technology experts and data specialists who find solutions for complex projects involving cybersecurity, data recovery and digital forensics. Their diverse clients are located around the globe and range from private retail companies that need to establish proactive anti-malware solutions to law firms and in-house counsel that require complex data recovery projects completed within tight deadlines. Capsicum Group has recently added to its already extensive list of services by establishing a new program that provides cybersecurity and privacy training to companies and government entities.

Data security breaches are an increasingly serious problem, from the Office of Personnel Management upset in May of this year, which compromised the security of private information belonging to over 20 million people, to a spate of concentrated cyberattacks on banks and corporations that have caused the loss of millions of dollars (according to the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a data breach is $6.5 million), not to mention reputational damage. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that businesses and governmental entities educate their personnel on cybersecurity best practices.

Capsicum's new training program will consist of half- or full- day sessions for entire organizations, including the C-Suite and/or their employees, who will be educated on a variety of cybersecurity concepts and best practices, including but not limited to:

- Security principles and concepts.
- Mobile device security hazards and issues.
- Secure data storage and management procedure.
- Data breach response protocol.

The program will also provide a security audit and vulnerability assessment of the workplace environment. By taking advantage of Capsicum Group's expert instruction, companies and government organizations can protect themselves against cyberattacks and keep clients and personnel safe from potentially costly breaches.
