Cybersecurity is one of the most important issues facing society. The risk of cyber attack becomes ever more of a concern as our technology develops, particularly when we consider the increased interconnectivity of devices with the growth of the IoT. There are many reasons that individuals or underground groups may issue a cyberattack, and perhaps equally as many ways in which they could do so. That’s why the cybersecurity industry is so important and quite so large as it is.
As an evolving and diversifying industry, being up-to-date with everything going on in the world of cybersecurity can feel like a full-time job. The trick, however, is knowing where to look. As always, we’re here to help… this time with a bunch of websites and cybersecurity blogs for you to bookmark. You’re welcome.
