Cyber threats are considered as malicious acts that seek to dismantle/damage data, steal data, or cause disruption and havoc to the advanced digitized life generally. All sorts of computer malware, data breaches, Ransomware, Denial of Service attacks, Distributed Denial of service attacks among others can be categorized as Cyber/Cyber security threats.
In line with the business community Cyber threats greatly describe the business’ posture in terms to how much risk the business faces and the measures it has taken to protect itself.
Cyber crimes have cost each and every African citizen that fall victim of the fraudulent attacks to over US$274 per year on average according to the statistics from the various cyber trends
As cyber crimes are advancing every other day, with the smart error and smart devices like phones, PDAs among others where personal data is put at risk and that has so much counted to the cyber crime growth and emergence of more threats that could be used against personal data, the limitation with this is that there is inadequate skill force to mitigate the rising speed of the cyber crime spread in our own continent and this has costed a lot of business ventures and people that have fallen victims of the cyber-lay strategy
Weaker, poorly secured and not actively monitored networks for organizations and government parastatals have acted as a favorite playground for cyber criminals. As a result of the of the abilities and skills to manipulate and utilize available loopholes in the systems, the attackers take advantage of the state of the vulnerabilities in the systems to launch scary and massive attacks to such organizations.
In the past years, cyber crimes have costed governments and businesses billions of money that are trapped through the cyber-attacks from the malicious intents of attackers and to this point Companies are trying to cope in part by relying more aggressively on artificial intelligence and machine learning, but this is still at a relatively nascent stage and can never do more than mitigate the problem. Big companies have their hands full, and it’s even worse for smaller enterprises. They’re attacked more sometimes as a conduit to their larger business partners because their defenses are weaker.
So what kind of cyber talent are companies and government entities looking for?
The threats created by the attackers have of late become savvy in discovering and exploiting vulnerabilities unintentionally and inadvertently designed into computing devices of all kinds. It shows clearly the far that the attacks made to the organizations have gone in maneuvering conventional cybersecurity countermeasures to detect and defeat them. It really does require constant vigilance and expertise to keep pace with the new and innovative threats that appear every day.
