What is Cybersecurity
Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, programs and data from unauthorised access or attacks that are usually aimed at exploiting, changing or damaging sensitive information. Businesses across the globe implement cybersecurity to protect the company, as well as their employees and customers.
Why it’s necessary
With many companies engaging in online business and e-commerce activities via mobile and web applications the opportunity for cyber attacks has increased. This leaves businesses vulnerable to hackers. Protection of these platforms should be a priority for all businesses, big and small
Due to its flexibility, efficiency and low cost benefit, most of today’s enterprises are using at least one public or private cloud platform. While the cloud is considerably safe, cloud threats are on the rise and as such data protection is paramount in setting up defences against possible hackers.
Digital invoicing systems, credit cards, ATMs and online banking are all systems that leave both business and the public vulnerable to serious cyberattacks. It’s vital that business operating within the financial sector implement cybersecurity practices across their operations.
