Things You Need to Know about Cyber Security
About two decades ago, the internet was a relatively new and promising technology that was used by a small number of people. Today, this technology is available all over the world and it is used by millions of people of all ages who simply cannot imagine their lives without using their computer, mobile device and the Internet. The internet has opened up many new opportunities for people, but with this expansion we can also witness certain risks.
Cyber security is a trending topic that affects all economies in the world as well as the personal safety of people at least when it comes to personal data. Of course, the introduction of certain tools like Virtual Private Network or VPN has significantly improved security in the cyber space, but as we can all see cyber threats and dangers are still present. Every month we read about new computer viruses and intrusion in the computer system of both individual and business users. These attacks can result in major security and economic damages and this is why special law enforcement forces are monitoring this danger. Although it is difficult, cyber security is not something impossible to achieve. Probably the first thing you should remember whenever you use the World Wide Web is to be careful when visiting new websites. Starting from 2011, October is designated as national cyber security awareness month in the United States, but many countries in the world also use this month to increase the awareness of cyber security among ordinary Internet users by organizing debates, providing instructional materials etc.
