We live in a digital world where much of our lives, personal and professional, reside online. With the digital transformation of all business processes and transactions and technology changes, it becomes increasingly challenging for businesses of all types to keep their personal and customer information on the web secure. Digital security is important to keep hackers and cyber thieves from accessing sensitive information both for the government and for any enterprise.  Without a proactive security strategy and mechanism, businesses risk the spread and escalation of malware, and attacks on other websites, networks, and other IT infrastructures. Security and vigilance are vital in keeping information and data safe, and this responsibility isn't just on the individual; everyone is a potential target, including governments and private corporations.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, our dependence on all matters digital has increased dramatically. With the digital shift, remote working has become integral to our economies and the medical response, the rising dependence of citizens and businesses on everything digital is only going to continue.

Without security measures in place, there is a high risk for sensitive, private or confidential information or messages to be vulnerable to hacking and manipulation. Depending on the intent of the intrusion, this can range from innocuous, like market research, to devastating, like identity theft or other fraud. Governments and private companies with sensitive information are also at risk as their information is often valuable, and they also maintain private information on individuals such as customers or employees.



With every new device, user, and business that connects to the internet, however, the threat of cyber-attacks increases. If a government cannot provide secure and trusted digital connectivity, societies can’t prosper and economies won’t thrive. Cyber-attacks are a serious threat to the economy and national security. Government agencies around the world need to be able to defend against known threats, respond to new threats immediately, and quickly recover from cyber incidents, whether they are the result of an accident, natural disaster, or malicious attack.

Global Facts: Need for Digital Security

  • Globally, an estimated 127 new devices connect to the internet every second. Any disruption in digital connectivity is considered an obstacle in the path of progress. (Mckinsey)
  • Cybercrime will cost companies worldwide an estimated $10.5 trillion annually by 2025, up from $3 trillion in 2015.
  • According to Ponemon Institute’s State of Cybersecurity Report, insufficient security measures are 45% of why their processes are ineffective at mitigating attacks.
