Over the past few decades, technology has become more and more integral to people’s workplaces and private lives. People now rely on technology to connect with others and conduct work effectively. It’s evident from social networking, email correspondence, conducting financial transactions, and collaborating over work documents.
However, these lines of communication can have a disastrous effect not only on the business but also on an individual’s daily life when threatened or compromised. That’s why everyone needs advanced cyber defence programs in today’s connected world. A cyberattack can result in everything from the loss of valuable data like family photos, to extortion attempts, to identity theft. It’s also essential to use encrypted Internet connections for securing financial service companies, healthcare facilities, and even power plants, among other organizations, because everyone relies on these critical infrastructures. Indeed, cyber security is vital to a functioning society.
