With the proliferation of Internet-enabled devices, cyber culture is growing more rapidly than cyber security. Everything that depends on cyberspace is potentially at risk. Private data, intellectual property, cyber infrastructure and even military and national security can be compromised by deliberate attacks, inadvertent security lapses and the vulnerabilities of a relatively immature, unregulated global Internet.
The rise of criminal activity in cyberspace has become one of the fastest growing security threats to both organisations and citizens. Organisations today are not only at risk of being infiltrated from lone hackers; they are also facing threats from organised crime groups that have developed sophisticated hacking tools. With sophisticated malware, viruses and techniques becoming more mainstream, and attackers getting smarter, companies need to rethink the way they view cyber crime and the steps they take to protect their data.
