Cybersecurity Overview

Explaining the challenges of Cybersecurity with  simpler methods

From our Cyberjokes blogposts 3 jokes in bold:

Hey! It compiles! Ship it!     (i.e. software is built fast to make money)   security is not in most programmers minds, deadlines are.

The computer is mightier than the pen, the sword, and usually, the programmer. (we need the computer in 2016 and the Internet)

In order to understand recursion you must first understand recursion. Understanding Cybersecurity is difficult, as the sophisticated hackers take advantage of people that don’t understand.

Explanation of recursion:

Recursion has something to do with infinity. I know recursion has something to do with infinity. I think I know recursion has something to do with infinity. He is sure I think I know recursion has something to do with infinity.¹

The above 3 jokes set up the reality of Cybersecurity. There is no such thing as 100% secure, since humans create software and we need to use the Internet in 2016 and beyond. BUT to understand Cybersecurity you must have a lot of IT knowledge and that knowledge is too difficult to convey.

And the cartoons show that the weak link will always be humans in front of computers.

 

We only internalize what we understand – but hackers hack you no matter _your_ understanding.

 

I want to ask a rhetorical question: “If 22% of business does not backup their data, do you think 25% of people do not patch is accurate?”

If you do not patch and do not backup data then you will go out of business with ransomware attack. Period!

 

 

What should you do to fix this?

Tell companies you do business with:

Get the shield (Oversitesentry approved) so they can stay in business even after a Cyber Attacks.

Look for this shield when going into a business.

 

And to the small and medium business:

Tell your consumer that you have done the minimum Cyberdefense (and thus you will be around even after an attack)
