As an introduction to Cyber Security, this webinar is designed to discuss the factors that have made Cyber Security essential and important in today’s interconnected world. The need to secure, protect and defend cyberspace from cyber-attacks has never been this high. From the security of basic and essential services such as emails, to the protection of national critical infrastructures, such as power grids, this webinar will discuss some of the factors making Cyber Security increasingly challenging for example: 1) our lives are so much dependent on cyberspace than ever before, 2) cyberspace is becoming increasing complex, coupled with the pace of technological advancements and innovation, 3) while on the other hand cyber attacks are now much more resolute, sophisticated and the ‘people’ behind such attacks are becoming resourceful and formidable.
