Like all countries and territories that have laws and security systems to protect them against unlawful elements, so does cyberspace. The world being a truly global village means that anyone from any corner of the globe can have access to resources in any part of the globe. This offers tremendous opportunities and also poses incredible risks.
The internet being the gateway to every corner of the globe means there is bound to be a few strays that wander into someone’s domain from time to time. Cybersecurity is your protection against unwanted visitors.
The global cyber threat continues to evolve at a rapid pace, with a rising number of data breaches each year. A report by RiskBased Security revealed that a shocking 7.9 billion records have been exposed by data breaches in the first nine months of 2019 alone. This figure is more than double (112%) the number of records exposed in the same period in 2018.(Kaspersky)

In today’s connected world, everyone benefits from advanced cyber defense programs. At an individual level, a cybersecurity attack can result in everything from identity theft, to extortion attempts, to the loss of important data like family photos.

Securing these and other organizations is essential to keeping our society functioning.(CISCO)
