Travel & Transport

The travel and transport sector is the biggest in the world, accounting for a trillion dollars of annual revenue. It is also one of the most vulnerable to cybersecurity threats. Cybersecurity measures in this industry are still at a nascent stage, especially considering that its enormous success is derived from digitalization and automation.
The travel and transport sector is comprised of airlines, hotels, rail companies, bus fleets and other related industries. A major cyber incident can lead to personal injury or death as well as financial loss for the industry's customers. This includes travellers who have purchased airline tickets, made hotel reservations or taken a train trip. Increased connectivity has increased the opportunities for hackers to attack vulnerable systems in the travel and transport sectors.

Telecommunications

The telecommunications sector is an attractive target for cyber attackers because of the critical nature of the systems that are used in the sector. The focus by hackers on the telecom sector is to gain access to networks, infrastructure, applications and services where they could potentially control network traffic or use it as a platform for launching further attacks.

Small Businesses

Small businesses are more vulnerable to cybersecurity attacks than large corporations because many small businesses lack the security measures, resources and budget to deal with such incidents.
In the last 12 months, we have seen an alarming rise in the number of cyber-attacks on small businesses. The consequences are grave as many small businesses don't have the financial resources to recover from these security incidents and may close down or even fall prey to embezzlement of funds.

Retail & E-commerce

E-commerce websites are prone to cyber attacks and data breaches. Compliance with PCI/DSS can be a daunting task for small and mid-sized businesses. We help you build robust security protocols, comprehensively audit your systems, train your employees to follow secure practices, and respond quickly in the event of a breach.

Restaurants & Hotels

Because they gather, store and process such sensitive information, the hospitality industry is a frequent target of data thieves. According to the European law that came in to force on 25 May 2018, operators are obliged to inform their customers about their personal data protection policies.
In the hospitality sector, it's critical to ensure the safety of your systems and data. As a business owner, you need to constantly stay up-to-date on the latest cybersecurity threats and trends so that you can minimize your risk and keep your organization protected. Awareness is where it all begins.
An average restaurant will have a lot of customer data on their systems, including names, addresses and other important information. This can be used to make fraudulent transactions of credit cards. The same applies to the system of hotels that have guest lists with the personal details of all customers.

Research Think Tank

Cyber threats to national research and data - Strategic national data or organisations that manage this data are also at risk from cyber security threats..
The data that is generated by the national research community, government agencies and businesses are valuable to the country. It is used for conducting research, policy development and service delivery. There is growing recognition of the importance of cyber security to protect this data from potential threats such as those posed by criminals, terrorists or foreign intelligence services.
Cybersecurity threats to national data and research activities are becoming more sophisticated. The increasing interconnectivity of data, devices, and applications is providing fertile ground for criminal activity.

Power/Energy/Utilities

As the world becomes more connected and complex, the threat of a cyber-attack, to disrupt our critical infrastructure has become one of the biggest concerns for modern nation states. Such an incident will have devastating consequences - affecting millions of people and creating significant economic damage. To combat these threats, governments need to focus on countering such attacks through a combination of several different strategies that include both offensive and defensive measures.

Personal/Home User

Cybersecurity is a huge issue in today's workplace. Employees are often working from home, and because they are not under direct supervision, they can be more vulnerable to cyberattacks. Moreover, many employees use their personal devices at work without getting adequate security training to lower the risk of being hacked.
Cybersecurity and remote working can be a difficult combination. If you work from home, your computer is often used to access corporate networks. This increases the risk of cyber-attacks because home PCs are often not adequately secured and monitored by IT teams.

Non-profit/Association

With the rising number of cyber-attacks, both charities and non-profit organisations are at risk. Cyber criminals may target these organisations more than others due to the high value of data they hold. It is essential that charities and non-profit organisations adopt effective measures to protect themselves from cyber threats.

Media/Entertainment

Cyberattacks in the media and entertainment industry are a direct threat to the survival of these companies. Cybercriminals can use malware, phishing emails, RATs, keyloggers and exploit kits to carry out cyber attacks on social media, search engines and news outlets.
These attacks are a growing trend across the world. This increase in cyberattacks has led to an increased awareness of information security and privacy among customers in this sector.
It has become a routine affair. The recent cyberattack on Sony Pictures Entertainment is the latest example of how vulnerable the entertainment industry has become.
Companies need to be prepared for these threats and have security measures ready. This can be done by having a team of cybersecurity experts who are always on call 24/7 to detect and respond to such incidents.
Cybercriminals have identified the media & entertainment industry as an easy route to extorting money. The volume of data stolen and leaked from these industries is alarming.

Elections

Following the presidential election of 2016, there are significant concerns from both government and private organizations on how to secure the electoral system. Cybersecurity is a major reason for concern, as state actors have become increasingly sophisticated in their attacks against elections infrastructure. The Center for Internet Security (CIS) has published a set of baseline security controls that all 50 states should consider when securing their systems.
The threat to the electoral system from state actors has been proven. It is essential that we resolve this issue by implementing a robust cybersecurity program that includes security controls around the electoral process, including: systems, networks, databases and applications as well as for voter registration and verification.
Cyber-attacks against the electoral system have been on the rise in recent years. The integrity of elections across the world has already been compromised by events such as hacking, altering of electronic voting machines and using social media to spread false information. With the democratic elections around the corner, there is a growing sense of urgency to ensure that cybersecurity controls are in place to protect our democracy.
Cyber threats are a serious matter that affects the integrity of elections. The electoral system can be hacked through various means such as access to voting machines, disruption of voter registration information, attacks on the media and social networking sites as well as cyber-attacks on political parties and candidates. Irrespective of the method, cyber-attacks have the potential to influence the voters and disrupt the election process. It is important to ensure that all possible steps are taken to mitigate these risks before they become a threat.
Cybersecurity is one of the most important challenges faced by states today. The threat is not just from traditional threats like terrorism and hacking, but also from political pressure on the electoral process itself from politicians to tamper with election outcomes.
