CyberSecurity

Cybersecurity is a burning industry that thrives by selling and stealing personal data or money from everyone everything on the Internet is at risk because you can be blackmailed or have your bank accounts emptied while you sleep hackers are the ones to blame for cybersecurity theft but some companies develop software that helps to keep privacy private and if they don't take this problem seriously very bad things can happen whether we're talking about terrorism fraud or privacy nothing is safe anymore this entire industry handles a scary amount of money and it only started a few decades ago when computers and the internet were invented.

 


1. Companies can lose up to $2 trillion in a year due to cybercrime

Companies can lose up to two trillion dollars in a year due to cybercrime one of the scariest things is to wake up one day and have it all taken away from you because you logged on to a weird website or you used your credit card somewhere different it's even worse when you're a company and billions of dollars are at stake studies show that in 2019 cyber fraud would be up by two trillion dollars globally higher than it ever has been cybercrime products are very advanced and these days when people are so fed up with corrupt governance and the lack of resources anything can happen let's be real although it's not the honest way to make money a lot of people have thought about it.

 


2. Less than 2%of this industry is done by humans 

Less than 2% of this industry is done by humans there used to be a time when cybersecurity was a very demanding job done 100% by humans 24/7 nowadays though things have changed and with modern technology, this industry is one of the most advanced in the world over the years autumnization has become such a big thing that only 2% of cybersecurity is done by actual humans robots and other software have replaced humans in a matter of decades they still need humans to keep the machines and programs running and safe but that's about it.



3. Everything connected to the Internet is at risk

Everything connected to the Internet is at risk the pictures you post on Facebook or anywhere on the Internet can be used for all sorts of unwanted or evil purposes even worse is that any device connected to the Internet like your phone your TV security cameras or your doorbell is at risk any vulnerability or a breach in the system can be used against you millions of people have been victims of cybersecurity so whatever smart technology you use or fingerprint PIN codes try to secure everything with a trustworthy 2-step authentication strong passwords even insurance all those movies you see on TV are inspired by real-life situations.



4. Tech companies are offering free software to help secure future elections 

Tech companies are offering free software to help secure future elections in light of Cambridge analytic and Trump selection people are now doubting the system and the value of their vote a lot of things happen behind the scenes and cyber fraud is one of them for sure to prevent third parties from interfering with future elections some tech companies are offering free software to help secure them although some people are skeptical about companies giving cybersecurity for free let's not forget that this is the way they will advertise themselves as the software that helped elect a president indeed nothing is brief.

 


5. Amazon has a market capitalization of $770 billion 

Amazon has a market capitalization of $770 billion the most important and safe cybersecurity company is not necessarily the richest one although billions of dollars are poured into this industry it's surprising to see which one invests the most and that company is the giant Amazon the company of the richest man in the world Jeff Bezos is also the one that has the biggest market capitalization of this industry over seven hundred and seventy billion dollars they keep their data really secure and take cybersecurity very seriously we're curious what kind of security Jeff uses for his one hundred and $440 billion.



6. Edward Snowden uncovered one of the biggest global surveillance systems conducted by the NSA 2013

Edward Snowden uncovered one of the biggest global surveillance systems conducted by the NSA 2013 was a very interesting year for Edward Snowden and the U.S. as most people know by now Edward uncovered a series of secret operations that the US government through the NSA were conducting global surveillance it didn't end very well for him as he's still hiding somewhere in Russia where he's in an asylum but thanks to him we now know just how complex and holistic this system is nothing is private and the most precious thing someone can have these days is privacy and information governments and big companies are spying on you and using your data to manipulate your behavior that's why we reached out to a service that we personally use to protect our online activity VPNs are a simple to use service that hides what you do online from third parties at a click of a button this type of technology used to be incredibly expensive.



7. Yahoo was the victim of the biggest data breach in history

9. More than 60% of companies don't update their IT systems 

More than 60% of companies don't update their IT systems you know the saying you get what you pay for this, unfortunately, applies to many companies out this number comes from Microsoft the company that pretty much is responsible for 70% of the computer systems in the world when you're a professional you should be extra cautious with emails software and even hardware information is powerful and keeping everything safe and updated is utterly important since so many companies take it for granted it's no wonder they get blackmailed it's always better to prevent problems rather than to treat them.
