Why is cybersecurity so important?
The importance of digital security
Cybersecurity is important because it encompasses everything related to our personal data protection, information about personal identification, health information, intellectual property, government and industry data and information system against theft and damage from cybercriminals and other entities that try to enter in our private network.
The cybersecurity risk is increasing and its caused by global connectivity and cloud service usage, the place where personal information and classified data are stored. The defficient generalized configuration of cloud services along with increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals, has meant that the risk of succesful cyberattacks or a data breach to your business is increasing.
“Cybersecurity nowadays is more important than ever, due to world population’s mayority connected to the worldwide network and that makes them vulnerable if they don’t have the appropiate tools to protect themselves on the network. In the past few years there has been hacks that caused irreparable damage to the public and private sector. Unfortunately, today we have to be conscious about being a victim of information hijacking, identity theft, banking products cloning, phishing, etc…. Through this simple hacks or digital methodologies to extract information we can lose it all. To have a protected system, it is required the help from every member from said system, since all are protected, the system does not have any vulnerability, it’s like having the flu and stay home to avoid the propagation of it in your office (SYSTEM). Keeping your devices with the proper cybersecurity measures helps the system to not have a security vulnerability”, . Explains José Domingo Abogabir, CEO and General Director of Measured Security.
Cyber threats can come from any level of your organization. You must educate your staff about simple social engineering scams like phishing and more sophisticated cyberattacks like ransomware or another malware designed to steal intellectual property or personal data.
The General Data Protection Regulation or (GDPR) and other laws indicate that cybersecurity is not something that companies of any size can ignore. Security incidents affects regularly to companies of any size and often they appear on the cover causing irreversible damage to the reputation of companies involved.
The importance of cybersecurity is on the rise. Our society is fundamentally more technological-dependat than ever before and there’s no sign that this trend will decrease. Personal data that might provoke an identity fraud, now they are poste don our social network accounts. Classified information such as social security numbers, credit card info and bank account details are now stored in cloud storage services like Dropbox or Google Drive.
