CyberSecurity Expert Declares Russian Password Theft Call to Action

Attending CyberSec 2014 Training Session Is More Important Than Ever

COLUMBIA, MD--(Marketwired - August 07, 2014) - Firoozeh Azarbaidjani-Do, co-founder and president of Phoenix TS, the internationally acclaimed and award-winning computer training solution provider, today announced that the recently reported theft of passwords and internet credentials by a Russian crime ring is a call to action among the nation's cybersecurity professionals. "Anyone who has personal data on the web, from personal communications, or from the online purchase of goods or services, is at risk," she said. Some of Azarbaidjani-Do's suggestions for immediate action include adding multi-factor authentication, which is provided by Gmail, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and other websites and, critically, being careful of where consumers plug their information into online.

She continued, "Organizations need to be committed to protecting their web systems from such attacks through close monitoring, penetration testing and thorough investigation if an attack does occur. It's the organization's responsibility to protect their users to the best of their ability and as such employees need to be well versed in today's latest standards of and methods for protection in order to deliver on this promise. Security will always be a concern. That's why we need more knowledgeable and diligent security professionals to increase our odds and continue to play catch up in the cyber war against black hat hackers. It's an excellent example of why attending our Cybersec 2014 training session is more critical than ever." 

CyberSec 2014, the four day training session for IT professionals, held October 14-17 during CyberSecurity month at the firm's headquarters in Columbia, Maryland, will be the leading source of training in standards and protection. The training sessions will provide participants with the latest critical information they need to prevent dangerous security breaches such as this latest episode. The sessions will cover hands-on skills necessary for cyber managers, investigators, defenders and offensive hackers.

Concluded Azarbaidjani-Do, "Without understanding the risks and taking the proper steps you could be at risk for dangerous security breaches that could wreak havoc on everything from companies and customers to power grids and financial systems. For organizations especially, the impact of these attacks is felt long after the incident is reported and often times the financial loss of consumer trust is never fully regained. Don't miss our Cybersec 2014 training session where you can learn how to keep you and your organization safe."
