Half of U.S. businesses don't have a cybersecurity risk plan in place, it is critical for companies to have the right tools in place to protect against cyber threats and resulting damages and expense.

Washington DC, USA (PRUnderground) January 11th, 2023

When you think about security for your business or company, what comes to mind? In today’s digital world there’s the added stress of making sure you are on guard against cyber threats. According to an article in Security Magazine 58% of U.S. companies reported a loss of revenue from ransomware attacks during the pandemic.

Most of the cloud solutions available are public. According to the 2019 RightScale State of the Cloud Report 91% of businesses said they used the public cloud, while 72% said they used a private cloud.

Tackling Cyber Security for your company is a big task when put alongside the other endless priorities of business leaders. Understanding the different types of threats and jargon is time consuming and confusing. That’s why Hacking The Cyber Threat LLC provides cyber security consulting for executives facing these challenges. The best part: the consulting is provided by a retired FBI Cyber Executive Pedro Cordero. Cordero works with executives and boards of directors for companies by listening to their cyber security concerns and helping them create a framework that works best for their organization.

With so much confidential company information stored online and in computer systems, it’s critical that leaders have the tools to defend against cyber threats. Cyber criminals are constantly looking for ways to hack email accounts, access financial information and other critical data, and steal company passwords. Hacking the Cyber Threat LLC also has a program designed to equip leaders and executives with the knowledge they need.

The program includes several elements including helping leaders understand how a cyber attack could impact the company overall, what malicious software is, and what kinds of tools and schemes cyber criminals use. The transition to more employees working remotely has also increased the risk of cyber threats. That’s why this program also emphasizes the importance of protecting mobile and wireless devices.

“One of the biggest threats to security today isn’t in the physical world, but the online world”,said Pedro Cordero, the founder and Principal of Hacking The Cyber Threat LLC. These cyber criminals aren’t just local, they’re also international and that’s why it’s critical for every executive to have their company in a position to protect themselves from ransom attacks, a breach of confidential information, phishing scams.”

Cyber attacks can cause a company emotional and financial headaches disrupting normal day to day operations. The loss of revenue is also a consequence. That is why it is so important to make sure your company is protected from these threats and bad cyber actors. Cordero would be happy to be interviewed about things executives and leaders can start doing today to make sure their company has the proper cyber security.


Hacking the Cyber Threat LLC was founded by Pedro Cordero. Cordero has worked as a cyber security executive in the FBI and Private sector. He has led FBI Cybersecurity Intrusion Investigations. He has several cybersecurity certifications including Cloud Penetration Testing, Network Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking, and Certified Information System Security Professional.
