Focusing on the digital transformation of the industry and the introduction of new and advanced technologies, this module provides brief insight on the ever-evolving landscape of the cybersecurity attacks which are on the rise.
Furthermore, digital transformation also creates new opportunities for cybercriminals to exploit vulnerabilities in the systems and networks. For example, IoT devices often lack adequate security measures, and can be easily hacked to gain access to sensitive data. Similarly, cloud computing introduces new risks related to data privacy and the security of cloud infrastructure.
In conclusion, digital transformation offers significant opportunities for businesses and organisations, but it also brings new cybersecurity challenges. By implementing a robust cybersecurity plan and staying informed about the latest threats and trends, organizations and individuals can protect themselves against cyber threats and ensure that they reap the benefits of digital transformation safely.
