Cybercrime is a global problem that’s been dominating the news cycle. It poses a threat to individual security and an even bigger threat to large international companies, banks, and governments. Today’s organized cybercrimes far out shadow lone hackers of the past; now large organized crime rings function like start-ups and often employ highly-trained developers who are constantly innovating online attacks. With so much data to exploit out there, Cybersecurity has become essential.

It can be rightfully said that today’s generation lives on the internet, and we general users are almost ignorant as to how those random bits of 1’s and 0’s reach securely to our computer. For a hacker, it’s a golden age. With so many access points, public IP’s and constant traffic and tons of data to exploit, black hat hackers, are having one hell of a time exploiting vulnerabilities and creating malicious software for the same. Above that, cyber-attacks are evolving by the day. Hackers are becoming smarter and more creative with their malware and how they bypass virus scans and firewalls still baffles many people.
