Cyber security, as a subject, was never taken seriously until it was too late. Already, as part of the World Wide Web community, we are going through the year 2013. It was supposed to be a marvel; good news for online businesses and a happy ending for all; sadly it wasn’t and it isn’t. (more…)
Two years ago, in one of its case studies, CISCO CEO hinted that cyber security threats are on the rise. Back then, the overall number of companies was ignoring online security parameters, which is why the U.S. government never sanctioned a lot of loans to benefit security services providers.
Whatever happened next, everyone is aware of it… Companies started losing not only revenue to cyber attacks, but they also lost a great deal of valued customers. The latter, in any case, is more damaging to businesses that depend on prospering through customer reputation. (more…)

When we talk about website security, you have already heard of the huge attack percentage. It is a notion that makes web masters believe that their websites are insecure because online attackers are at large. No, while it may be true that your million dollar internet company is a hotspot for competitors and unauthorized intruders, you are failing to secure some of the parameters because of sheer lack of knowledge.
As a matter of fact, website security is a very interesting topic; particularly for people who are on the radar these days, and to the ones who have a bit of web presence under their control. You hate the web at times; everyone does, and it happens when spam attacks, viruses, 0 day vulnerabilities and such attacks are affecting your chain of operation. (more…)
