Such has been the impact of the digital revolution in the past two decades, that it is now difficult to imagine the world of commerce running without internet connectivity.
However, with the significant benefits of the connected world come a range of cyber threats, increasing steadily both in number and sophistication. Here are some of the most prominent threats, either anticipated or currently active:
-Various threats to mobile devices using SMS, e-mail and the mobile web as vehicles
-Botnets – an improvised malign “network” of compromised computers, whose resources are harnessed (unbeknownst to their users) for criminal purposes
-The risk of cloud computing, despite the advantages it brings, possibly presenting new means of attack
-The threats from “conventional” hacking, viruses and malware, which continue to cause untold problems, including significant loss of business and reputation
It is little wonder then that companies are always on the lookout for cyber security experts who are able to provide them with the right strategies, protocols, and practical steps for resisting such threats
