“I AM THE CREEPER. CATCH ME IF YOU CAN.” This was the message that was displayed by the first computer virus. Created in 1971 by Bob Thomas, “The Creeper” was originally designed to test security and see if a self-replicating program was possible. Since then, computer programming has evolved, and with it so has cybercrime. Now, there are many more cyber threats than ever before. Instead of a harmless program like the creeper, there are things like phishing, malware, botnet attacks, data breaches, crypto jacking, etc. As these threats evolve and escalate, in direct proportion to technology, so must cybersecurity.
Cybersecurity is absolutely essential in today’s cyber climate. The growth and sophistication of cybercriminals, ransomware and hacker attacks has reached epic levels.
