How the Digital Transformation changes our lives

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown each one of us the benefit of information technology. It enables us to work remotely, live remotely, and foremost keep contacts over distance – with the youngest and the oldest, the closest, and even new people.
Our society increasingly relies on information and operation technology. Examples are water supply, energy, heat, and cooling supply, communication, healthcare, the production and processing of goods, transportation, national security, banking, research and education, or food production.
Common to all these domains is that they make heavy use of distributed networked computer systems. Such systems can be attacked in many ways. This is not only a problem for computer nerds anymore as computer systems are critical for each one of us. The effects of so-called cyber attacks range from power-outages to collapsing the healthcare or banking sectors.

New dangers in the digital world

The linkage of computers to so many of our daily life processes brings many advantages as it enables new, and more efficient services. At the same time, it brings risks. Digital Systems attract new kinds of attackers. The connectivity even allows remote attacks from the other side of the planet. Automated attacks gain importance.
Cybersecurity affects many areas of our lives. It uses diverse techniques. Preventing attacks against our infrastructures requires adequate security mechanisms to be put in place. Cybersecurity specialists work on making systems secure-by-design, on continuously monitoring them, and on defending them against attackers. But cybersecurity is not only for experts. We all need cybersecurity, and providing adequate cybersecurity requires support from each of us, as security starts with the people using a system.
Securing the cyber requires support by everyone. Many attacks start with someone clicking on a mail attachment that installs a malware that starts infiltrating the local network and all connected systems. Preventing attacks starts with getting some understanding of cybersecurity. This is where the Cyber CNI speaker series comes into place. Join us for the next talk!
