First responders, essential workers, and soldiers are all guardians of our social fabric and way of life. They deserve our admiration and recognition for serving and protecting our well-being.
What is rapidly changing are the threats to our digital life and digitally-controlled infrastructure. If it’s digital, it’s cyber-vulnerable! We’ve already seen the regretful loss of life in hospitals that couldn’t serve critical ER patients because they were ransomware-paralyzed. The costs of being caught off-guard are higher than ever.
We think that nowadays cyber and information security workers deserve more of our appreciation for their sacrifice of being there for our businesses and governments, engaged in a form of cyber warfare, working day and night to keep our business and street lights on.
