What is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the field of IT that is concerned with protecting an organization’s network and sensitive information from cyber-attacks and extortion attempts. Cybersecurity utilizes the latest technology to detect patterns and practices commonly used by hackers in order to prevent future attacks.

Cybersecurity also involves educating employees throughout an organization about password protocols and how to spot phishing emails and other types of attempts by hackers to access a company or individual’s network.


About Critical Insight

Critical Insight is the only cybersecurity-as-a-service provider that prepares, monitors and responds to cyber threats, going beyond SOC-as-a-service offerings typical of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) offerings.

With a focus on organizations that deliver critical services – hospitals, local governments, utilities, school systems, and more – we provide end-to-end support to those with limited security teams or budgets to handle threats proactively and as they occur.

Based in Bremerton and Seattle, Washington, Critical Insight is a venture-backed company founded by former CISOs in the public sector. We are committed to training new analysts and providing the most up-to-date cybersecurity protection.
