Introducing Cyber Bytes

Learning modules to help you better understand the sources, targets and risks of cyberattacks

AFM has created a series of online learning modules to educate our brokers and clients about cyberattacks. The modules are 10 minutes or less and help you understand cyberattack sources, targets and risks so you can better protect your business. These three modules, available 24/7, explain what you need to know right now:

  • Cyber Byte: Threat Actors and Attack Vectors
    Learn about the various types of threat actors (e.g., hackers) and common attack methods.
  • Cyber Byte: Crown Jewels
    Discover the importance of protecting the business assets that are critical to your company's distinctiveness.
  • Cyber Byte: Inherent Risk
    Find out how inherent cyber risk factors differ from other, more familiar, inherent risk factors.

Cyber Bytes can be accessed through the course catalog in the AFM Training Center.
