Technology advancement has been a double edge sword for those impacted. The quality of life has improved drastically while new challenges and complications have also surfaced on the opposite end of the spectrum. The typical household today is surrounded with numerous digital devices and some of them continue to stay with us even when we leave. People are aware of the cybersecurity challenges they’re facing and are looking for solutions to protect their digital lives, but they lack the knowledge and motivation to manage their own cybersecurity. Service providers can capitalize on this opportunity and increase revenues by providing simple, ready-to-use cybersecurity solutions that require minimal user input. In this webinar, we focus on how ISPs can better address their subscribers needs, and also make a profit, by packing cybersecurity into a much needed and accessible service. Cybersecurity is not an area where service providers should be pulling back on spending. An evolving cybersecurity portfolio is a long-term investment and the key to keep your subscribers protected, engaged and happy.
Key topics include:
Overview of today’s cyberthreats
How cybersecurity addresses latest threats
Cybersecurity as the top value-added service
Driving awareness with education and repetition
Leverage current events related to cybersecurity
