The internet is full of hackers, and these hackers grow in numbers, strength, and power each and every day. It was recently discovered that a group of hackers had managed to steal in total, around $1 billion from banks through their computers. This is thought to be one of the biggest banking breaches in history, and the robbers didn't even have to physically go to the bank. These hackers got their way into the banks' computer systems and observed the banks' operations. They either set up fake bank accounts to steal money with, or they programmed ATMs to dispense money at specific times. According to Kaspersky Labs, the hackers have attacked 100 banks in 30 countries, all fairly easily. Banks are one of the more prone industries to hacking, but they're not the only ones that need to keep a watchful eye when it comes to hacking incidents.
Cyber security breaches are becoming increasingly sophisticated and targeted as the years go on, and your company is vulnerable even if they are not a major retailer involved in cutting-edge technology or high-risk information processing. Cyber security issues in 2015 run the gamut from mobile hacking to holding data for ransom. The level of sophistication that cyber criminals are using is increasing exponentially and no company is immune from cloud breaches, data theft, corporate espionage or social media targeting. Information continues to propagate and generate new threats, and determined criminals can target companies through high-tech malware, social networks and mobile devices. That's why security training and cyber certifications are becoming more essential regardless of your company's size or industry.
