Why Cyber Security Should Be Your No. 1 Business Priority for 2017?

A significant number of CEOs along with their executives and managers have reported that their technology budget will see a considerable increase in 2017 – a recent survey report from Mondo read. According to one of the Business Insider’s reports, it is estimated that nearly $655 billion will be spent on cyber-security initiatives for protecting mobile devices, PCs, and IoTs between 2015 & 2020.

Cyber security is at the top of all the IT spending priorities as companies are more concerned about their network and data due to increasing threats and hackers on the market. President Trump also said (cnet.com) in one of his pre-election speeches that the only way to keep America safe is to make cyber-security a major priority.

Cyber criminals are evolving at a very aggressive pace as they intelligently utilize the opportunity of being anonymous and spontaneous. They are developing new, innovative modes of attack every day. They study an individual’s or an organization’s cyber behavior and intervene instantly wherever they find a loose string. Companies must start being prepared for potential cyber-attack as otherwise they might face heavy data losses, disruption of operations, or loss of customers’ trust.

Despite the efforts put in by the cyber security experts and government agencies, cyber-crime is likely to increase in the coming years. Technical innovation and use of smart phones invite more online dangers. Moreover, the development of Internet of Things has made machines more vulnerable attack points for hackers.

Malware protection must be a key concern rather than just having policies for securing emails, web browsing data, and personal devices.
