Last month the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security confirmed that the nuclear, aviation, energy, and water sectors, as well as some critical manufacturing industries, have come under cyberattack since at least May of 2017.

When it comes to protecting these resources from cyberattacks and other such threats, there needs to be!
