Every day, thousands of people all over the world find themselves in the unwanted situation of a data or security network breach. This eventually led to the realization of the importance of cybersecurity by the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCSA) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2004. Since then, awareness campaigns and education programmes have been spread all over the globe by individuals, small businesses, and even large corporations like Google.
In fact, based on an article by The Independent, the issue of cybersecurity risks and threats have been touted the third highest cause of global disruption over the next five years by the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report 2018, making it just slightly behind the risks of natural disasters. Just as recently as September this year, Reuters reported cyber-crime related attacks had infiltrated Europe’s largest economy in Germany, causing their manufacturing industry to suffer a loss of almost 43 billion euros through stolen manufacturing techniques and sensitive data, plus digital sabotage . It was found that small and medium-sized companies were often the main targets of these attacks.
