Why is Cybersecurity important? Cybersecurity protects all categories of data from theft and damage. An insider threat can be as simple as an employee opening a phishing email. Or leaving their computer unlocked in a public area. Even the use of unsecure public Wi-Fi or not keeping devices and software up-to-date can be risky.
Cyberspace is the new battlefield. We’re seeing attacks on civilians and organizations from nation states. Attacks are no longer just against governments or enterprise systems directly. We’re seeing attacks against private property—the mobile devices we carry around everyday, the laptop on our desks—and public infrastructure. It has morphed into sophisticated international organized crime and, worse, sophisticated nation state attacks.
According to an annual survey of 620 IT professional across North America and Western Europe from ESG, 51% respondents claim their organization had a problem of shortage of cybersecurity skills—up from 23% in 2014. The security landscape is getting more complicated and the stakes are rising, but many enterprises don’t have the resources they need to meet their security needs.
The number of connected devices in 2018 is predict to top 11 billion – not including computers and phones. As we connect virtually everything, anything can be disrupted. Everything from the cloud to the edge needs to be considered and protected.
