Facts about cyber security
- Loss of trust
There is a lot at stake during any form of security breach in the system. It’s more than just loss of data when vital records such as financial information is stolen. This will result in a loss of trust between the company and the said organization it has been collaborating with.
While the data can be retrieved through the aid of cyber security, trust is a lot harder to gain.
- Loss of time
A Cyber security attack will also impact in the loss of time. Obviously, it will take a period of time to recover lost data and the company usually follows a standard set of protocols and procedures to eliminate inconsistencies. In a time sensitive world like ours, clients will easily looks towards other available companies.
- Negligence by employees
Ofcourse, hackers and malicious software play their role in stealing content but recklessness by employees is another reason. Perhaps, they could be given training or this could be built-in the setting up of the security system in order to prevent goof ups.
- Lack of utilization
Although there is cyber security knowledge readily available at hand, most companies do not gain from it because technicians do not bother catching up on new technological insights. They must be well aware of everything before applying for such a position.
- Skills falling short
Unfortunately, there is a general shortage of cyber security experts.
There are top notch organizations like the Canadian Society of Forensic Science and Elijah digital forensics that help a fair amount in forensic investigation.
Cyber security is very important in today’s world as it is directly proportional to how life operates for most of us 24/7. Nearly all careers resort to technology for various operations. We rely almost completely on them.
Even in orthodox settings like restaurants and schools, teachers use smart boards and waiters use a tablet to take your order. It’s become so redundant that any error today is related to our digital device. For example, there are e-mails that contain viruses that can infect your system and steal all your information.
Security concerns are not necessarily related to only work but also our personal lives like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. Even our social networking can be compromised with people creating false identities to pursue an illusory online romance or generating fake profiles to access confidential information.
