Proactive cybersecurity measures are more critical than ever

With accelerated digital transformation, the cybersecurity landscape is evolving at an unprecedented pace. The rise of ransomware, in particular, has become a significant concern for enterprises worldwide. It’s predicted that by 2031, a ransomware attack will occur every two seconds, causing global economic damage exceeding $265 billion annually, according to Cybersecurity Ventures. The ransomware market has become more “professional,” with services like ransomware-as-a-service and cybercriminal services-for-hire becoming increasingly prevalent, according to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). This has led to a rise in attacks on critical infrastructure globally, with attackers using methods such as phishing, stolen credentials and software vulnerabilities to gain access.

Additionally, another alarming trend is the targeting of software nearing its end-of-life (EOL) or becoming obsolete. These software versions pose a significant risk because they no longer receive security updates and patches, making them prime targets for cybercriminals.

This rapid growth of cybercrime, coupled with the increasing sophistication of attacks, has made it imperative for organizations to adopt proactive cybersecurity measures.
