Too Long; Didn't Read

At its core, today’s world relies on digital technologies. Public infrastructure, transport, communication, business, government, finance, and healthcare depend on the synergy and stable functioning of IT environments at all levels. A single disruption in a link of IT processes may cause the entire system to fail, resulting in service unavailability. The downtime of banks and public institutions, for instance, leads to significant inconveniences for citizens. A major system disruption as a result of a cyberattack on an IT environment of a particular organization means the probability of critical data loss or theft. In turn, loss or leakage of data causes public image deterioration, unwanted reputational and financial consequences, and even legal fines for organizations due to noncompliance. What is a cyber attack? Who is a cybercriminal and a cyberterrorist? Where does a cyberwar start? What is cyber security and how to design it? In this post, we will explain what are cyberattacks, the main types of cyber threats, examples of cyberwar, and IT cyber security approaches.
