Providing cyber immunity against digital risks and threats

Providing cyber immunity against digital risks and threats
-A +A

With advancements in technology, smart devices and the Internet of Things (IoT), the world today is more connected than ever. Our reliance on technology has made computers and smartphones indispensable parts of our lives. But the convenience they offer also comes with threats, which is why protecting our data from theft and damage is of the utmost importance.

Cybersecurity helps shield consumers from cyberattacks that breach sensitive data such as personally identifiable information and protected health information. It also serves to protect us from theft of personal information, wealth and finance and intellectual property data, as well as governmental and industry information systems.

According to a report by Check Point Research, there was a 50% year-on-year increase in cyberattacks in 2021. This was largely exacerbated by the global workforce shifting towards remote working, making them more susceptible to malicious activities and attacks. The report claims that on average, 30,000 websites are hacked every day.

With our increased dependence on technology, cyberattacks can be a debilitating experience, especially when it involves issues such as wealth, banking and finance. With the rise of digital banking and a cashless society, most financial transactions today are done online, which requires extensive protection from cyberattacks such as malware and ransomware.
