The world is getting more and more dependent on technology. With the increase in digital data creation, every governmental or non-governmental organization stores a great deal of data on computers and transmit it across other networks. The loss of data and any destruction or any threat to devices can cause devastating consequences to any business. Moreover, it can affect the reputation of an organization. Hence, cybersecurity has become the quintessential requirement to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of information. It involves risk management approaches, training, and best practices to protect data from attack or unauthorized access.
Why Cyber Security is required?
Data breach can destroy any business to a great extent since it can affect the company’s reputation. The loss of critical data or any confidential property can cost any company’s other competitor advantage. Due to non-compliance with data protection regulations, it can impact corporate revenues as well. Let us go through the major type of cyber threats:
Malware- Computer viruses, spyware, and keyloggers are malicious software.
Phishing attacks- obtaining sensitive information for example passwords, details about credit cards through disguised email, phone call.
Similar to phishing attacks, if someone obtains confidential information through manipulation is called social engineering.
Persistent attacks- An attack in which the network remains accessed by an unauthorized user for an extended period without being detected.
Since a cyber-attack can cause severe damage and cost organizations huge losses, effective management of cybersecurity must be implied from the top of the organization.
Identifying cybersecurity assessments to identify and evaluate risks is the most effective way to protect your organization. It can be possible when training is given to every member of the organization, only then it can ensure a robust cybersecurity culture. When everyone is well – educated about the network threats, then only the business organization can be kept from these cyber-attacks.
