In the past few years, technology has taken a huge turn in terms of accessibility, usage, and efficiency. But what about reliability? How much do we trust technology with our personal data? If we do, how much of it is really protected?  A report in 2018 shows an increase in ransomware attacks by 350%, spoofing or business email compromise attacks rose to 250%, and spear-phishing attacks went up by 70% in companies worldwide. In 2020, where we are predicting 5G technology to take over the telecom industry, where do we stand on the cyber security front is the question to be asked. 

Given the heavy reliance of businesses on online databases and cloud storage, you’d think that the stigma around reporting cyber threats and cyber attacks would’ve become less with growing time. But that’s not exactly the case. Even today, several major cyber security cases go unreported because it either involves some of the big players of the industry or the victim companies are embarrassed to accept the fact that they didn’t put much effort into building a strong defense system. 

Another reason for not giving much-needed attention to cyber security is the lack of clarity on the subject matter. If you understand that whatever you do on the internet is a transaction, you’d be more conservative of the data you are providing free to companies and helping them grow.
