Importance and awareness of cybersecurity is ever more important today. In essence, global society is now more reliant to technology than before and there’s no sign that this graph would slow down. Personal data may lead to identity theft, now that everyone has easy access to these pieces of information through social media.

Sensitive information similar to social security numbers, bank account information, credit card details are all saved using cloud storage services.
The fact is, regardless of your status in life, whether you are a private individual, a small business or multinational company, you depend on using computers every single day.
