Data and security are two of the most crucial topics of discussion regarding modern networks. As the internet grows in scope and complexity, it provides greater benefits to the way people interact and do business, but it also presents a greater number of variables that must be maintained in order to keep things running smoothly. Tech experts are becoming an indispensable part of the workforce at large, as well as within individual organizations for this very reason. Here’s what you need to know in order to create the stable and secure infrastructure your business needs in order to thrive in the digital age.
The Coronavirus outbreak continues to hold the entire world hostage, and healthcare facilities are at the forefront of this struggle. The fact that hospitals and pharmaceutical labs are overwhelmed with work and research makes them more vulnerable to malware attacks than ever before. Saving lives is their top priority and everything else comes next. Malicious actors don’t seem to care about the importance of these commendable efforts, though. They are waging a cyberwar against medical organizations as if the COVID-19 emergency weren’t underway.
Public Wi-Fi seems to be a great blessing, but it is actually a security threat in disguise. Are you interested in knowing the reason?
Well, public Wi-Fi is not just an attraction for internet users, it is also a favourite spot of cybercriminals and predators. Hackers use various ways to steal users` data on public Wi-Fi. They track your online activities on the network and may send malware to your device while being on the same network.
Open source components enable you to quickly develop software. You don’t need to start from scratch. Rather you can find a project that already exists and build on it. Using open source components can save you a lot of dev time. However, to avoid introducing vulnerabilities into your quality codebase, you need to properly secure your open source components.
With all the extraordinary progressions that we have witnessed as an outcome of technological advancements in cybersecurity, there are still some gaps that daunt people and the work they are associated with. With the increasing number of thefts that we happen to encounter in a globally connected era, there is a much need of having a robust and authentic system to secure all the whereabouts.

Threat actors use vulnerabilities to launch their attacks. By exploiting vulnerabilities, attackers can gain access to systems, networks, and devices. Vulnerabilities enable attackers to steal and ransom sensitive and corporate information, as well as eavesdrop to confidential communication.
Vulnerabilities can be created as a result of software error, or as forced injections like SQL injection attacks and OS command injections. Other common vulnerability attacks are buffer and integer overflow, which involve the alteration of code by the attacker. Every day, more and more vulnerabilities are discovered. In 2019 alone, over 22,000 vulnerabilities were disclosed.
The COVID-19 pandemic means many physical stores must launch e-commerce operations to keep profits coming in during widespread shutdowns. Keep these five tips in mind if you plan to bring your brick-and-mortar business online soon.
If you are working from home and concerned about cybersecurity, then you are in the right place.
Freelancers and virtual assistants are working from home for decades and the concept of hiring distant employees is not new. But what is different in the current scenario of teleworking, is accessing the company’s database directly from a remote location.
From healthcare to the e-commerce industry, there is no more important focus than data security. A single introduction of destructive malware or the theft of a few records could be catastrophic as recent studies show that every single stolen file could cost a company $150. If you are a smaller organization, the total cost could be catastrophic.
