Cyber security in today’s environment has become the No. 1 priority of business and government organisations alike. Cyber attacks have increased dramatically in depth and complexity the past several years. Cyber criminals continue to make attempts to exploit vulnerabilities within networks either for personal gain or to advance a political cause. Efforts are being made to improve security software on a regular basis to prevent data breaches.
The focus of security in the cyber realm is to develop a strategy that encourage best practices to ensure that networks are protected and secure from all forms of cyber threats. While networks can be secure, they are not foolproof. Sometimes the greatest weakness in a system are its users if they lack the training. Statistically speaking, over 30% of phishing emails are opened, which results in the theft of end users’ private and sensitive information.
Antivirus and firewall solutions, as well as good security practices help to keep your network resources safe. It is incumbent on the individual organisations to coordinate with the staff or service that manages their IT services to ensure that users are intricately familiar with network policies while simultaneously enforcing them to maintain compliance.
Viruses, malware, and insider threats continue to be persistent problems due to their ability to exploit vulnerabilities within a network enterprise. Oftentimes resources are committed by organisations to devote time to correcting these problems in a timely manner, resulting in millions of dollars in damages, loss of business revenue of your company’s most valuable customer.
