Why Are Cybersecurity Threats Increasing?
Cybersecurity threats are increasing at an extraordinary rate, and so are the concerns of experiencing a breach. 68% of business leaders feel that their cybersecurity risks are increasing. Software quickly becomes obsolete and not supported, and new patches are not provided to protect against newly found or created vulnerabilities. Cyber threats also continue to evolve and appear in many forms, including phishing emails, phone calls or texts, malicious devices (i.e., USB drives), and exploiting system vulnerabilities. Cybersecurity threats often mirror current events, which are also rapidly changing in today's world.
