Tuesday, February 13th is Safer Internet Day (also called SID). This year’s theme is “Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you.” We think it’s a fantastic message to spread to our clients and readership.
Basically, Safer Internet Day serves as a call to action for every person who engages with the Internet, for every stakeholder to play their part in making the Internet a better place for everyone. This is especially necessary for the youngest users out there, people who are the most susceptible to being taken advantage of.
It’s just as important for businesses as it is for individuals to protect themselves on the Internet, whether that be through reputable IT and security or practicing safe standards of operation at your place of business.
Cybercrimes Are on the Rise
Leading market analyst Juniper Research reports that the cost of cyber crime will rise to $2.1 trillion globally by 2019, in the form of data breaches. A lot of these data breaches come from existing IT and network infrastructure. But every time there is a new mobile device, a new door opens up for subterfuge.
The Internet of Things (IoT), which has to do with the interconnection of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, opens up more opportunities for cyber crimes, since these everyday objects are able to send and receive data.
