Cyber-attacks? Why do we need to worry about it? It is a developed countries’ phenomenon, a white-collar crime. Why should I be concerned about it? Why should I care about cyber security training or services?
This is usually the popular mindset that I’ve noticed and everytime I couldn’t help but fret even more thinking about how vulnerable our lives have become as we tread on ‘Smart‘ ways. Nation is on ‘cashless’ path and every service is tweaked by IT. From banks, traffic lights to power grids, dams, nuclear reactors, everything is embedded with brilliant softwares, intelligent algorithms, astute programs. IT is the bedrock of everything in our lives.
Awesome, sure it is!
But, is it secured?
Our private lives, all personal data, hard-earned money survive on passwords and the very potentiality of the respective security system against hacking. A bug here or a loophole there, all information stands naked before scrupulous eyes and we are the most vulnerable ever.
Scary, isn’t it?
Now I put the million dollar question, DO WE WANT a cyber defense system against hacking attempts?
Cyber security training, thus, is as important as caring for a tree that we once planted. The paradox here in India is that we boast of having superlative talent in IT, but we also have a serious crunch in securing the same. As per a 2013 report in The Hindu, ‘India has just 556 cyber security experts while the need is more than 4 lakhs.’
