CYBER SECURITY PRINCIPLES IN A NUTSHELL

 

The cost of Cybercrime in the U.S. was $6 Trillion in 2021 and is expected to grow by over 10% in the following years.  “There is an ongoing Cyber War “, said Brigadier General Raphael Warren in his address to Del Norte this past week. 

 

General Warren shared the fundamental concepts of cyber security and the risk it imposes, particularly our businesses.  He discussed threat versus vulnerability and the risk we all can face at one period of time of another.  He elaborated that because we are near a military installation we are probably more susceptible to being hacked. 

 

He advised that “data backup” is the key to safety and that we should all be using anti-virus software to detect and remove malware.  Phishing, spear-phishing and whaling are all ways we become vulnerable to hackers. 

 

When he was asked about other countries continuing to use cyber war to attack our systems he assured us that the United States is still the most technically advanced cyber security force in the world and that we will continue to be vigilant against those threats.
