Cybersecurity threats are always looming in the corner, transforming every second. Staying on top of these threats is vital but getting ahead of them is paramount.  

The internet is swamped by various cybersecurity articles but let’s reel it back and discuss cybersecurity at its core and what it’s meant to stand for.  


Cybersecurity defined  

There are numerous advantages to living in this century. You can do almost everything from the comfort of your own home – file your taxes, buy your groceries, order food, make appointments and run a whole business without needing a brick-and-mortar shop. All the examples provided were absolute lifesavers during the peak of Covid-19 which also saw the spectacular growth of online services and products. If juggling our lives online was second nature to us, it’s now just our living reality.  

But all this convenience at our fingertips also has a detrimental downside. With almost all our data present online, bad actors can utilize this to do a lot of damage. Cybersecurity exercises have one main aim – to protect you in the virtual realm.  

Cybersecurity certifications are aimed at building cybersecurity skills for safeguarding your systems, networks, data, programs and people from security attacks. Most of these attacks are carried out with the intention of accessing, altering and or destroying sensitive information, coercing money from users and interrupting business as usual.  

By putting into effect solid cybersecurity measures is also increasingly challenging as attackers become more sophisticated and creative with their attacks, but that just emphasizes the importance of gaining the right skills and evolving with the patterns to ensure you and your team remain 10 steps ahead of these threats.  



There are two reasons according to CompTIA as to why Cybersecurity is imperative: 

1) Our identity in the real world and the virtual world is increasingly blurred. From submitting our taxes online, virtual banking, social media, we quite literally live online.  

2) The supply chains that keep us fed and clothed are all managed through information technology. 

According to Microsoft there was a 1,070 percent increase in ransomware attacks year-over-year between July 2020 and June 2021, staying on top of attack trends—such as ransomware and supply chain threats—is more important than ever.  

Risk Based Security reported that the first six months of 2019 had seen a whopping 4.1 billion data records via security breaches. It goes without saying that the impact caused by such large-scale breaches that involved big, multinational firms will require more than a mere change in password.  

This has also unearthed reality that malicious hackers are now targeting technology and providers that support your existence in the modern world. They have placed a bull’s eye on your personal data or to simply put – on you. With that said, if you are on the internet, security should be your priority.
