Security Risks and Survival Strategies

Cyber threat is not a myth, it is very much real. As cyber-crimes go on rampage, the concept of cyber-security has changed drastically. Companies and government agencies have to come together and put up a collaborative effort to deal with these challenges. Threats can come from any corner; vulnerabilities should be identified and removed instantly. The four main risk types are – 1. Known Known 2. Known Unknown 3. Unknown Known and 4. Unknown Unknown. The last category poses the biggest threat, the damage caused is severe. Awareness is the only tool to eliminate these threats. And make no mistake, time is running out very fast.

When can you feel secure?
