The pace of online breaches happening around is same as the digital proliferation today. Let’s consider the time few years back, the impact of a breach wasn’t much, however, since we are too digital now, the impact of any such breach is hard hitting. The corporate leaders are full aware of the increasing threat, but not reacting, the way they should. It becomes more alarming to know that the little tools, the cyberpunks were using have advanced much to be called as weapons. Can you hear it coming?
To more dismay, all corporate companies have been hit big or small, someway. Still yet, the precautionary measures for cyber defense are not in place much. If they do not see it, they do not know it, is a deadly mindset, whatever said and done!
Talking of internet of things, the vulnerability of things too has increased. From banks, shopping, forex and recreation every thing is increasing leaps and bounds on the web. Take care of where you give your personal information. Like many others there is this, this site will delete your private information from websites to ensure safety.
They say, with technology advancement everywhere, the security layers are also getting strong. Does this mean that the hackers and spammers are not determined enough? Unfortunately, this isn’t so! Their advancement has not limited either. We just spoke about their little tools becoming weapons, so have their ways become smarter.
Keen organizations should look to individual training and awareness. The biggies think that their people are adequately aware of the situation, but they are sadly mistaken. The awareness is superficial. Employees should be aware of the netiquettes. Lot of people don’t know what they should know and hence are susceptible to manipulations and phishing. These organizations should join hands and adopt good and active defense principles.
The threat is hovering, every tick of the clock. So, we better be full up and about it, lest it’s late.
