Security is one of the first things to invest in when managing your networks and applications. Just like the evolution of technology, the nature of ransomware and online threats have also evolved, and it has become extremely important to employ the latest best practices of cybersecurity to secure our devices and networks. However, despite our efforts to maintain the integrity of our cybersecurity systems, cybercriminals are insistent on finding new ways to penetrate our networks for malicious purposes.
The cybersecurity landscape has seen remarkable changes in 2020 with the surge in remote work. Organizations have clambered to set up remote work environments, and implement two-step authentication to ensure network security. The rapid surge in digital footprint has also resulted in a sharp rise in cybersecurity threats. According to International Data Corporation, barring major breaches, average small to medium size businesses are now likely to face costs amounting to almost 1.3 million dollars per year for cyber security-related incidents.
What you don’t know about your software product or your company’s infrastructure should scare you.
Every minute that you turn a blind eye to an issue is a minute gained by cybercriminals intent on gaining access to your sensitive data and confidential information. And with more employees working from home, hackers have discovered more ways to infiltrate software and applications.
These days, we can’t go more than a month without hearing about a new high-profile cyber attack. Hackers are growing more malicious by the day, and it seems that almost no company—no matter how big—is safe from their tactics. Huge advancements have been made in ensuring the security of products in sensitive domains, like the healthcare, financial, and legal spaces, but cybersecurity companies need to be more vigilant than ever to fend off new, even more advanced attacks.
