Realising the Importance of Cyber Security After I Was Hacked

To begin with, cyber-attacks are on the rise, and they are causing damage to companies, the government, and even individuals. For example in May 2017, the WannaCry attacks, a ransom ware that self-inscribed on about 300,000 computers and other forms of digital software in over 150 countries and as a result this was one of the worst cyber assaults (YahooNews).

 

Cyber Security is important because there has been an increase in the number of cyber security attacks, the severity of attacks and also for the future outlook. The cost of the threat of cyber threats will have risen to $ 6 trillion by the end of 2021 from a recent report. After I was hacked I thought my life was over but Rubica saved me. As a person who has been hacked, I can relate to this, personal emails are deleted; these hackers are able to get bank information from you and commit fraud if not detected early and mess with your credit scores. They also lock you out of your many email accounts and social media accounts which result in panic, frustration and more emotional turmoil.
