The rise of the internet has led to a dark and dangerous world of cybercrime. While the internet was meant to make the world a better place, there are some who seek to use it for nefarious ends. Examples include phishing, fake news, identity fraud, hacking, and so on.
What Is Cybersecurity
Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access.
Cybersecurity covers a number of areas, including the following:
- Application security
- Information security
- Network security
- Disaster recovery / business continuity planning
- Operational security
- End-user education
Cyber attacks, data theft, and digital espionage are becoming all too common. Cyber exposure is not just a technology risk, it is a major business risk. Security risks evolve at a rapid rate. As businesses increasing become dependent on data and technology, their exposure to cyber-induced business interruption increases exponentially.
These risks include malware and distributed denial of service (DDoS). According to Forbes, the global cybersecurity market reached $75 billion for 2015 and is expected to hit $170 billion in 2020. This requires a more proactive and adaptive approach to dealing with this scourge.
The sophistication and proliferation of these methods and tools that enable individuals to harm your organization require a proactive approach to threat intelligence. Building cyber resilience requires aggressive new tools—and powerful new thinking.
