Networks of Florida’s strategic partner Metova CyberCENTS conducts Cyber Challenges for Florida Center for Cybersecurity

Cybercrime is a common part of business these days. Even if you haven’t encountered a hacking threat at your business in recent years, the fact is that cybercriminals are coming up with new methods of stealing and compromising sensitive business data every single day.

At best, modern cybersecurity measures are 99.9% effective; cybersecurity experts around the world agree that hacks and data breaches are an inevitable part of business. That’s why it’s so important to learn about the latest threats, network with industry professionals, and put modern cybersecurity methods to the test.

Our strategic partner in cybersecurity, Metova CyberCENTS, did just that at the third annual Cyber Security Conference, hosted by the Florida Center for Cybersecurity at the Tampa Bay Convention Center on October 25th.

In addition to educational sessions, keynote presentations and panel discussions, the Conference offered attendees the chance to test their cybersecurity skills in a series live challenges focused on offensive and defensive capabilities.

As an industry-leader in cybersecurity, Metova CyberCENTS provided the cyber range infrastructure, traffic and attacks with their Cyber Operations Enhanced Network and Training Simulators.

“This helps them recognize what real traffic looks like, what attacks look like,” said William Dunn, President of Metova CyberCENTS and CEO of Networks of Flordia to Fox 13 News. “You lose your computer today, it’s not just your Facebook account.”

Fittingly, October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Just as our trusted partner Metova CyberCENTS works hard to train and develop the modern cybersecurity community, Networks of Florida is proud to continually grow and improve as a provider of proven security solutions.
