When we think of mass communications and emergency notification systems, we often think of weather-related events, power outages, fires, and other workplace emergencies. We don’t always jump to cyber security. Yet, cyber security is a big deal. It is estimated that cyber attacks cost businesses as much as $400 billion a year and is expected to reach $2 trillion by 2019. Read More
