In this digital world with more and more sectors moving towards online transactions, cybercrime has become a huge threat. “Cybercrime” is a criminal activity that is executed using a computer, networked device or a network. Since, there is no field that functions without a computer now-a-days this has become the hotspot for thieves. While most cybercrimes are carried out in order to generate profit for the cybercriminals, some are also carried out against computers or devices directly to damage or disable them. This crime leads to a compromise of personal data of self and customers which can have devastating affects not only for an organization but also for those who are connected with it directly or indirectly. With time these attacks have become more and more sophisticated, attackers are using an ever-expanding variety of tactics like ourselves from this we need to adopt effective and holistic cyber security measures.
The responsibility of Cybersecurity falls on everyone. It is a mistake to believe that you are of no interest to cyber attackers. Everyone who is connected to the internet needs Cybersecurity. This is because most cyberattacks are automated and aim to exploit common vulnerabilities along with specific websites or organisations. We all must function carefully within the policy framework and take the necessary precautions using decent passwords and avoiding phishing schemes. Governments have a responsibility to protect their citizens, and in the modern world, that means taking steps to ensure that digital resources are protected from outside interference. Companies have the responsibility to keep their customers’ data safe. While cybersecurity is a complex and ever-evolving process, taking certain precautions can help minimize the risks.
Cyber Crime is a big business. The proliferation of connected devices and the Internet of Things(IoT) further amplifies the cyber security challenges. With an estimated 14.4 billion IoT devices in use in India by the end of 2023, the attack surface for cybercriminals expands significantly.
