How to combat cybersecurity threats – from SecureTech Oulu

Global cybersecurity network - basic outline

The importance of cybersecurity has become more vital in the digital age across all industries. It protects sensitive information, prevents data breaches, and ensures business continuity. It also helps safeguard reputation, comply with legislation, promote innovation and competitiveness, and build trust among stakeholders. Therefore, considering cybersecurity is essential in all sectors.

In Oulu, we aim to be at the forefront of cybersecurity development, both in terms of producing new solutions and implementing them, as well as deploying reliable services. The SecureTech Oulu event on 30th May 2023 offers a unique opportunity to receive up-to-date information on the latest cybersecurity threats and best practices for combating them. The expert speeches and workshops on the day will provide valuable knowledge and practical advice to enhance companies’ cybersecurity. By participating, you can network with professionals in the field and engage with others interested in cybersecurity, sharing experiences and insights regarding security challenges.

Cybersecurity is a crucial aspect in the modern digital world across all industries. It refers to measures and practices that protect information and systems from external threats, such as hackers or data breaches. The significance of cybersecurity extends to organisations, businesses, public institutions, and individuals alike.

One important reason to pay attention to cybersecurity is that data is now largely stored and transmitted in digital form. This makes it more susceptible to theft. Neglecting cybersecurity can lead to the leakage of sensitive information, misuse of customer data, or disruptions to business operations.

Another crucial reason for cybersecurity is the significant increase in cybercrime. Hackers and other attackers continuously develop new methods to gain access to sensitive information. This highlights the need to maintain strong cybersecurity practices and solutions, such as data encryption, multi-factor authentication, and firewalls, which can help prevent or detect attacks.

The importance of cybersecurity also extends to business continuity. If an organisation falls victim to a data breach or leak, it can cause severe financial damage and reputational harm. Customers lose trust in the organisation, which can negatively impact business success. Having cybersecurity measures in place helps protect the organisation’s reputation and ensures it can continue its operations reliably and securely.

Legal and regulatory requirements are also motivating factors for emphasising cybersecurity in all industries. Many sectors have their own standards and regulations that organisations must meet. Such requirements are put in place to protect consumer and citizen privacy and ensure that data is handled appropriately and securely.

Improving cybersecurity also promotes innovation and competitiveness. When an organisation demonstrates its commitment to cybersecurity and can protect its valuable information, it builds trust among customers, partners, and investors. This can open up new business opportunities and provide a competitive advantage in the market. In the current era of artificial intelligence, this holds immeasurable significance.
