Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect devices and reduce the risk of attacks, damage or unauthorized access to our personal data that we store on certain devices and online.
Cybersecurity is more important now than ever before because phones, tablets, computers, the internet, online banking, emails and social media are currently more important than anything else to how we go through our day-to-day lives. This means if anything was to be hacked into or someone clicks on a dodgy link giving an outside party access to main systems, most businesses wouldn’t be able to operate until the problem has been resolved which can take some time especially if you don’t have the proper IT support company or plan in place. As of 2020 the average cost of a data breach in the UK was £16.1k.
The amount of cybersecurity incidents around the world are rising more by the day and even though most people/companies have a better understanding about it than they did before certain cybersecurity myths still float around.
Said myths are:
- Cybercriminals are outsiders: Cybersecurity breaches are often the result of malicious insiders, who work only for themselves or with outside hackers.
- Risks are well-known: The risk surface is still expanding, with thousands of new vulnerabilities reported in new or older devices.
- My industry is safe: All industries have their share of cybersecurity risks. All Industries fall under the illusion that theirs is safe, however, all have their fare share of cybersecurity risks and hackers are able to access systems anywhere if they have the means to do it.
