Importance of Cyber Security
With so much of our daily lives conducted online these days, it’s astounding that the issue of cyber security is not more discussed. Only occasionally does the issue come up in national consciousness, usually during a celebrity photo leak or a breach of political security.
However, common cyber crime is much more prevalent than these occasional headlines suggest. Every day, cyber criminals victimize people who shop, bank and send or receive money online.
And the sad truth is that few of these criminals can be described as experts or masterminds. The lack of awareness about cyber security makes most people an easy target for anyone trying to hack into their personal data.

High-Tech Crime Requires Sophisticated Professionals
In the United States in 2013, 3,000 companies reported instances of security breach by cyber attack. This statistic didn’t just include small businesses running on homemade websites, but giant retailers such as Target and Home Depot were also among the companies victimized. Customer data and credit card information was stolen, money was lifted from paycheck accounts, trade secrets and other intellectual property were copied and leaked, and in some cases, the criminals hacked into internal systems and held them for ransom.
