Do you ever get that “update software” message, roll your eyes, and click “later”? If you do, you’re not the only one. Thousands of people skip software updates because they don’t have the time and patience to sit through it.
We live in a world where digital technology connects everything around us. Businesses, institutions, individuals, and even governments use digital technology to communicate, transfer data, and conduct complex tasks and procedures. However, as much as the rapid technological advances have contributed to the improvements in the quality of life, they have also brought about numerous risks.
Coming out of 2018, we’ve learned a lot about the importance of proper cybersecurity structures and safety measures. The previous year has witnessed an increased number of cyberattacks and data breaches that left millions of people’s data compromised.
One of the most common mistakes businesses make when trying to improve online security is focusing only on safety measures and protection. Unfortunately, as much effort as we put into protecting our networks, systems, and devices, hackers are consistently developing more sophisticated methods that they’re using for malicious purposes.
Taking the right cybersecurity measures on a daily basis can help reduce the risk of becoming a victim of an online attack. Unfortunately, no matter how much effort you put into securing your data, there’s always at least a 10% risk of having your information stolen.
