Cyber Umbrella Receives $2 Million Grant to Provide Cyber Security Penetration Tests to American Businesses 

[Ashburn, December 15, 2023] - Cyber Umbrella, a leading nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting cyber security, has been awarded a significant grant of $2 million. This grant will enable the organization to offer Cyber Security Penetration tests to American businesses, helping them protect against potential cyber threats and attacks.  

With the increasing reliance on technology and the rise of cybercriminals, the need for robust cyber security measures has become paramount. Cyber Umbrella aims to address this issue by providing free security tests to businesses across the country. Thanks to the generous grant, the organization will now be able to extend its services to an additional 2000 businesses, covering up to 5 computers per business. 

"We believe every business in America should be tested as soon as possible, given the rise in technology and the malicious activities of cybercriminals," said Michael Benson, the founder of the Cyber Umbrella movement. "The man in the middle attack is just one example of the many threats businesses face. These dangerous hackers are playing the long game, gathering information, and exploiting vulnerabilities. It's time for businesses to be proactive in securing their networks and protecting their customers." 

The recent release of the Netflix movie "Leave the World Behind" has shed light on the potential catastrophic consequences of a cyber-attack. The movie portrays a scenario where all devices in America go down in a single day due to a cyber-attack. This serves as a stark reminder of the importance of cyber security in our increasingly interconnected world. 

Telco United, a prominent Wyoming-based firm with a growing Cyber Security division, has also pledged a $2 million grant to Cyber Umbrella. Recognizing the urgent need for enhanced cyber security measures, Telco United Cyber aims to support organizations like Cyber Umbrella that are dedicated to educating businesses and defending against cyber threats. 

Nikhil Bon, President of Telco United, shared his personal experience, saying, "I managed the IT for 400 computers, believing we were totally secure until the entire network went down. FBI investigation revealed that we had been under surveillance for months. This incident fueled my obsession with staying on the cutting edge of Cyber Security and partnering with organizations that educate businesses on effective defense strategies. Many businesses have a false sense of security, and this poses a serious threat to society as a whole." 

Businesses interested in applying for the Cyber Security Penetration test grants can do so easily by visiting the Cyber Umbrella website at cyberumbrella.org. The application process is quick and straightforward, enabling businesses to take a proactive step towards safeguarding their systems and data. 

Cyber Umbrella is committed to playing the role of a modern-day Paul Revere, warning businesses about the impending cyber attack. Their message is clear: The cyber attack is coming, the cyber attack is coming and it's crucial for businesses to be prepared.
