No one expected 2020 to turn out the way it did, and most of us hoped 2021 would see some marked improvements. Unfortunately, this hasn’t been the case so far. The first month of the year saw peak infection rates in many parts of the world.
Staying on top of current cybersecurity trends is an enormous challenge, especially for companies that don’t have in-house security teams. Small businesses that don’t have the budget for employing a cybersecurity experts team should not let their security systems suffer.
Most companies are missing key risks at more than one stage of the vendor risk lifecycle, yet few are expanding their TPRM programs to address these risks, according to Prevalent.
Addressing cybersecurity and it gaps in an ever-changing Workplace: 4 keys to staying safe in your new digital office space
Cybersecurity has always been tremendously important to organizations. But in the current environment, adequate security measures are harder than ever to implement. Many organizations now manage thousands of laptops, mobile devices, and apps. Moreover, these devices and platforms are being used by employees across a variety of settings, including in their homes, in offices, and even while traveling.
For IT professionals, the last few months have been brutal – never mind the last year of making sure everyone in the organization has the tools they need to be productive and secure for remote work.
Understanding what drives teen hackers is key to securing your business, says cyber expert Shelton Newsham
Company directors underestimate the risk of cyber attacks, largely because they don’t believe themselves to be a target. That’s according to Shelton Newsham, who spent 20 years in the West Yorkshire Police, including four as leader of the Cyber Prevent and Cyber Protect functions and the Organised Crime Unit of Yorkshire and Humber Police, before leaving at the end of last year to set up a consultancy Newsham Business Solutions Ltd.
The internet is an essential tool for organisations and individuals within almost every industry. This year has seen a huge acceleration in digital transformation, with many of us having to utilise technology more than ever before. Although this has been a positive in many ways, it means that many of us are now more vulnerable to data security breaches.
When it comes to cybercrime, perhaps no industry is as lucrative as the financial sector, where low-risk, high-reward malware attacks can fundamentally compromise personal data, funds and the customer trust banks work so hard to maintain. To thwart malicious actors from gaining access to their systems, banks’ cybersecurity teams need first to understand what they are up against.
Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting all forms of computer technology from malicious attacks. It includes the preservation of computers, servers, mobile devices, networks, applications, and data in the event of damage, destruction, and unauthorized access.
Data breaches and other cyber attacks are a real threat to all businesses, and organizations place high importance on their network security. This means that cybersecurity specialists – particularly those with higher qualifications like a cybersecurity masters – are in high demand across all industries.
The Council today adopted conclusions on the EU’s cybersecurity strategy for the digital decade. This strategy was presented by the Commission and the high representative for foreign affairs in December 2020. It outlines the framework for EU action to protect EU citizens and businesses from cyber threats, promote secure information systems and protect a global, open, free and secure cyberspace.
The year 2020 broke all records when it came to data lost in breaches and sheer numbers of cyber-attacks on companies, government, and individuals. In addition, the sophistication of threats increased from the application of emerging technologies such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, and 5G, and especially from greater tactical cooperation among hacker groups and state actors.

As prominent figures are banned from social media platforms for posting disinformation or inflammatory remarks, technology regulation has become a hot topic of debate.
“The system produces documents that are sufficiently similar to the original to be plausible, but sufficiently different to be incorrect,” said V.S. Subrahmanian, the Distinguished Professor in Cybersecurity, Technology, and Society, and director of the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society.
