Why is Cyber Security crucial for any organization?
As technology becomes more sophisticated, the skills of criminals often exceed those of security professionals in an organization. The number of successful attacks is the proof. With the growing importance of cybersecurity, skilled and well-trained engineers are in high demand. Organizations need people with the skills to secure networks and protect systems, computers and data from attack, damage and/or unauthorized access.
Cybersecurity breaches are costly and can damage any business, both financially and reputationally. A recent survey found that 43% of organizations have experienced a data breach involving sensitive customer or business information in the past two years. According to these figures, every year two out of five organizations are affected by major security breaches that compromise vast amounts of confidential data.
It seems to be hardly a week without at least one data breach report making the news. Credit card information may have been stolen from the store. Health insurance companies may have lost records of their underwriters. The government is losing records of those with permission, while allegedly private emails are now being posted on activism websites. It seems that no organization, private or public, is immune to cyberattacks.
