About Cyber Crime
Most cyber threat â€śexpertsâ€ś, predict that this trend- the cyber threat landscape will grow worse.
Hundreds of millions of people go online every day for bank transactions, shopping, and share photos with their friends on social networks and send all kinds of sensitive data over the web.
The fact is securing cyberspace is hard because the architecture of the internet was designed to promote connectivity, not security.
Cyber-security, involves protecting data and people, and multiple threats, notably cybercrime and online industrial espionage, both of which are growing rapidly.
Cyber-sabotage, terrorists, and hackers may attack certain systems that control vital financial and personally identifiable information, which threaten the life of civil society.
What do we need to do to protect your organization from cybercriminal threats?
Smarter, better-organized hackers are making life tougher for the cyber-defenders, therefore, it is important to keep ourselves updated with the newest techniques and methodologies.
All organizations have to give priority to security because cyberspace is about to undergo another massive change.
With the embedded technology, where the internet connects all devices, starting from our homes to our computers, it is crucial to have a security to prevent data theft.
Unless these systems have adequate security protection, the internet of things could easily become the internet of new things to be hacked.
We need to ensure that organizations get the basics of cyber-security right.
Companies also need to get better at anticipating where attacks may be coming from and at adapting their defenses swiftly in response to new threats.
Last yearâ€™s security is not good enough for next year hackers.
As our security technology is getting more advanced, so are the attackers developing and deploying advanced â€śTool Kitsâ€ť, which are readily available on the underground internet.
It is a new version of â€śCat and Mouseâ€ť, unfortunately, far more is at stake today than ever before.
Make sure that your network and system is secured and let UFI, help keep the bad guys out of organizations.
