Cybersecurity: Decoding a Safer Space in the Digital Era

Here’s the universal truth - The digital world has consumed us in more ways than we can ever imagine. Our finances, social lives, and professions are intertwined to the portals of cyberspace. The daily grind is never complete without access to various offers of the web. On a side note, cyberspace provides us with comfort in a nick of time. It’s like we're living the best of both worlds.


While we have adapted to this kind of phenomenon, a huge struggle lies as to how cyberspace can be a safe haven to people from all walks of life. Online fraud. Invasions of privacy. Cyberbullying. These are part and parcel of the threats experienced in the digital era. Who knows? Behind every web activity is someone lurking around, watching every move you make. Yes, it sounds creepy.

Now, where do we go from here? We have come to realize the issues and concerns governed in a digital work space. For most IT experts, the battlecry underscores securing a safer place without hampering the fullest potential of the technology. The IT landscape has gone a long journey and it’s never too late to foster the best practices talk about cybersecurity.

According to www.itgovernance.co.uk, cybersecurity is defined as “the application of technologies, processes and controls to protect systems, networks, programs, devices and data from cyber attacks.” Its main thrust is anchored on providing counter-measures against exploitations and reducing the risks of being cyber victims.

For the IT industry, cybersecurity is the star of the occasion, the meat of the program. Just imagine how these big wigs would thrive without cultivating security in its operations and networks. Billions will be lost, millions will suffer from malicious activities on digital systems.

World leaders, too, value the role of cybersecurity especially in formulating their policies geared toward national protection. The citizens’ vital information, for example, are prone to identity theft. If this issue has not yet been resolved, then it might lead to a worse case scenario. Take note, a country that invests in strengthening its cyber security measures has a good hold of keeping up its social, economic and political aspects.


As new threats arise in cyberspace, it is important that individuals and Information Technology (IT) professionals keep themselves abreast with the right knowledge and latest research on the threat landscape, industry trends and new technologies.
