MDP on "CYBER SECURITY and SOCIAL MEDIA SAFETY" (28 June, 2019)

CYBER SECURITY
Cyber security is a norm in today’s technology-driven business. Every organisation and every individual needs to have a holistic view of security which will help identify, detect, protect, monitor and respond to cyber-threats. Not understanding the changing landscape of cyber security or worse, being enveloped in a false sense of security can make or break organisations. Today we stand at risk to lose critical, valuable data and assets. Understanding potential threats, their context, identifying a company’s vital information and what needs to be secured is an integral component of cyber security.
One of the biggest myths is that cyber security is just an IT problem. Decisions about cyber security have implications throughout your organization—not only for technology-focused teams, but for every team. It only takes one bad actor or one mistake to put the entire organization in jeopardy. Therefore, all of us have a role to play in keeping our organization secure. As technologies advance in the blink of an eye, organisations need to be ever-vigilant and updated with the entire gamut of the cyber security domain. Understanding potential threats, their context, readiness to counter, manage them and create a sustainable cyber security environment is the order of the day.
SOCIAL MEDIA SAFETY
The rise of Social Media has introduced a new security paradigm, one that puts users – employees, customers and partners- squarely in the attacker’s crosshairs. Social media has become the new cyber battleground, presenting one of the largest, most dynamic risks to organisational and individual security in decades.
Organizations invest immense resources into social media, which is quickly becoming the primary communication method for both individuals and businesses. But intertwined in the snaps, pins and tweets are a multitude of information security and business risks, spanning targeted phishing, social engineering, account takeover, piracy, fraud and more. As social media continues to dominate business communications, there is an imminent need to understand and address the risks posed by social media, the largest unsecured IT network on earth. The nature of social networks enables users to easily upload and share photos, music videos, even thoughts and details about themselves. Social engagement thus flows with as little effort from the engaged users as a couple of keystrokes. But this very nature of social networks makes them the web hot spots for cyber crooks to concentrate their activity. They always go to big ponds, where there’s plenty of fish to catch. And Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest and LinkedIn have become the hot spots where they launch their scams, hoping to breach the internet security of as many users as they can. Well, the majority of cyber crooks want to make some easy money leveraging on people’s enthusiasm. But there are also cyber stalkers, cyber bullies and even child predators who can invade your online privacy, sometimes taking the privacy threat to the real world.
