Cyber crime has been steadily growing over the last few years, with a surge since 2017 and a 37.5% rise in the last year alone. As new and advancing technologies increase the number of ways and amount of time we spend online, the opportunities for cyber criminals to take advantage of these connections also grows. The challenge for cyber security experts is to keep up with the ever-evolving security landscape.
The opportunities for cyber criminals are now everywhere, from taking advantage of the rise in connectivity brought by widescale working from home to the vulnerabilities of rapidly developing technologies such as 5G and quantum computing. All of this means that organisations need to be more vigilant about their cyber security practices and make sure they are giving it the proper time and investment to ensure all bases are covered.
