Never before has the threat of cyber attacks been so widespread, so quick to develop and modify, and so staggering in its potential impact, which is why The Connectivity Center is investing in the next generation of cyber security products.

HUNTSVILLE, AL, March 18, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — In the vast and rapidly expanding world of cyber security solutions, an evolution is called for. In fact, the high stakes, the speed of development, and the urgency of the threats themselves present a combination that could be lethal to businesses. Never before has the threat of cyber attacks been so widespread, so quick to develop and modify, and so staggering in its potential impact.

Not only is our way of life at stake from the threat of catastrophic damage to the worldwide digital infrastructure, but so is the way forward. It’s not just the status quo that comes to an end if cyber security threats gain the upper hand, it is the whole tool chest on which we have come to depend for progress. So, not only does today require improved and enhanced cyber security solutions, but so does tomorrow. Similarly, those threats extend from the macro to the micro, from governments and national security to the enterprising small business down the street.

National security, and the social stability that comes from reliable government resources like defense and police protection, has been proven vulnerable by instances of spyware that stealthily made its way into data and information systems on which defense and intelligence agencies depend.

The fundamental services and utilities on which we depend every day for electricity, water, transportation, and communication are vulnerable to cyber security threats. In fact, it is said that malware might exist currently in electrical distribution systems that only awaits being activated by hostile competitors on the global stage. Malicious code was discovered in the power grid of Ukraine that was capable of controlling electricity substations, turning off power distribution and even damaging equipment remotely.

Businesses, of course, are subject to daily threats from viruses and malware. Ransomware attacks are reported frequently, and they may even be more widespread than we realize, because so many corporations depend on an image of security that would be shattered if a ransomware attack were to be made public. Small businesses, on which half the U.S. gross domestic product and the majority of jobs and job growth depend, face this vast cyber security threat without the benefit of a large IT staff. For cyber security solutions, small businesses, especially, must be vigilant and resourceful.
