Healthcare cyber attacks already account for trillions of dollars per year in damages to medical systems. Recent studies have concluded that some cybersecurity measures taken to remediate the problem may have potentially come at the cost of human lives.
The financial services industry is constantly under attack from cyber-criminals. From banks to brokerages, threat actors are always looking for ways to steal employee, customer, and business data. This puts both financial institutions’ credibility and integrity at risk.
As more and more local and state governments suffer from cyberattacks, it is becoming increasingly important to prioritize defenses and safeguards. Defenses and safeguards should be implemented before an attack occurs, as it could be too late afterwards. There is a risk of becoming another statistic if these steps are not taken.
