It is no secret that Cyber Security is one of the top concerns of the Western World right now. Major attacks have hit the US Federal Government and, closer to home, the likes of Talk Talk and HSBC have suffered significant reputational damage and financial loss.
Whilst giving cyber protection advice on a daily basis, people often ask me what my predictions are when it comes to cyber security for businesses. Well we are now over halfway through the year of what is being referred to more and more as the “year of the hack” and it’s looking bleak. This cyber threat is growing massively – and not just digitally.
There’s a war going on against cyber security. The really scary thing is that we are losing the battle against hackers and others alike, and most people are turning a blind eye to the most basic of online security.
What I have learnt over the last few months is that there is most certainly job security in computer security. Recently, I have spent a lot of my time looking into business security and checking for any vulnerability concerning IT threats.
