In today’s interconnected world, the relentless surge in cyberattacks is more than just a cause for concern; it’s a full-fledged crisis. The cyberattacks have witnessed an unprecedented rise, posing an existential threat to individuals, businesses, and even entire nations. In the past year alone, there has been a staggering 400% increase in daily cybercrime complaints, as reported by the FBI Cyber Division. To put it in perspective, that’s a jump from 1,000 to a whopping 4,000 complaints per day. This exponential growth underscores the gravity of the situation and highlights the urgency for robust cybersecurity measures.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we witnessed an unprecedented acceleration of digital transformation. The pandemic’s disruption led to a fundamental shift in the way we work, conduct business, and interact with the digital world. Remote work, cloud-based collaborations, and increased online transactions became the new norm. However, this rapid shift also opened new avenues for cybercriminals, who capitalized on the chaos. The numbers tell a sobering story: a global increase of 63% in cyberattacks in the first half of 2020, with over 36 billion records exposed. The Cyber Pandemic is upon us, and it’s evolving faster than ever before.
