Cyber Security has become a requirement

Not only to protect commerce financially, but also legally...

you are a target

everyone is a victim

demand is growing

it can not be met

figures show

astonishing trends

Right now businesses are being pressured more and more to invest in additional security services in the attempt to keep up with evolving dangers. The consequences of not being prepared are/will be catastrophic for companies and their customers. In the process of deciding how to establish and operate a business, many business owners of varying power and influence hardly take into consideration the guaranteed attack on their information technology investments. If leadership does not lead by example, department managers will be uneasy about delegating to subordinates the required implementation of common sense computing safeguards.


the world and almost all technology is connected

With so many people on the planet having access to technology. With so many governments and markets being co-dependent on each other; the negative consequences of computer systems having control over civilization is endangering not only personal identities or payment transactions, but also national infrastructure safety and environmental integrity.

A Human Rights concern

cyber criminals and spies preying on the innocent

Illegal actions against individuals and companies are not only carried out by criminal cells, but also state-sponsored agencies and their non-governmental contracted propagators. Legitimate business operations are being affected by such revelations; this means profits will continue to be hampered if economic activity isn't left alone by the misuse of information technology systems.

The Cost of Malicious Cyber Activity to the U.S. Economy

Release: February 2018 | Executive Office of the President of the United States

This report examines the substantial economic costs that malicious cyber activity imposes on the U.S. economy. Cyber threats are ever-evolving and may come from sophisticated adversaries. Due to common vulnerabilities, instances of security breaches occur across firms and in patterns that are difficult to anticipate. Importantly, cyberattacks and cyber theft impose externalities that may lead to rational underinvestment in cybersecurity by the private sector relative to the socially optimal level of investment. Firms in critical infrastructure sectors may generate especially large negative spillover effects to the wider economy. Insufficient data may impair cybersecurity efforts. Successful protection against cyber threats requires cooperation across firms and between private and public sectors.
