Cybersecurity

In a society with an increasing reliance on technology, wireless networks and “smart” devices, the need for protection of computer systems and networks is vital. Various types of cyberattack have been developed over the course of time, with the main ones being phishing, malware, ransomware, and social engineering. Their functions vary from causing damage to devices, to tricking users into revealing confidential information.

Nowadays, businesses and governments store large amounts of data on their systems and transmit them through the computers on wireless networks. The vulnerability of devices and networks to cyberattacks, may cause damage to the reputation of businesses, as well as affect their competitive advantage. Governments may face grave challenges if disruptions on the health system or a power plant were to be caused due to a cyberattack. On a personal level, it may cause extensive damage when exploited, such as identity theft and loss of confidential and critical data such as security keys and bank account numbers.

Cybersecurity protects data, networks and programs, through multiple layers of defensive mechanisms such as anti-tamper software and firewalls, and key operations like detection, investigation and remediation. Cyberthreat researchers also work on detecting new threats and cyber attack strategies, in order to reveal new vulnerabilities of the current networks and provide new solutions while educating the users in order to make the Internet safer for everyone.

With local governments adopting different measures against cybercrime, and new legislation being increasingly drafted, it is of vital importance that your business is well protected, and in the case of an attack, provided with the proper measures to ensure the restoration of any lost data.
