OmniCyber Security is pleased to reveal that we will be appearing at the International Security Expo in London.
A recent report by a world leading cyber security organisation ISC² has revealed the world is currently 2.93 million cyber security professionals short of the number required to adequately manage and mitigate current cyber threats. With an ever-increasing reliance on technology, there is also an increasing need for a workforce of cyber security professionals to defend our technology against attacks.
Fortnite is one of the most popular video games of all time, shattering record after record. The free game drops 100 players on an island to battle it out in a Hunger games style battle royal. The game, despite being free, is still generating hundreds of millions of dollars per month. To put this into perspective, just nine months after its release, Fortnite reportedly reached revenues in excess of $1 billion.

An increasing trend - cyber security attacks and data breaches. In a recent report published by The Varonis Data Lab, it was found that more than 41% of companies had more than 1,000 sensitive files including credit card details, health records, PII among others left unprotected on their network. The leak of this sensitive information could cost a business millions. It would therefore be a wise decision for companies who currently have little to no cyber security in place to think about implementing some measures – before it’s too late.
Data breaches are only becoming more frequent, big businesses are coming to the realisation that cyber security is mission critical. An old technology has resurfaced – The Bug Bounty Program.
One of the main reasons cyber attacks are becoming more common is mainly due to companies storing sensitive information not having sufficient measures in place to protect the data from hackers.
Phishing; the fraudulent process by which malicious users attempt to gain sensitive information from genuine users. This is often done by disguising their identity as a trustworthy individual or organisation.

This is the first time the UK government has directly acknowledged the state-sponsored hacker group’s involvement in a cyber attack.
