The networked world of today offers tremendous opportunities to help businesses and individuals connect with others across boundaries. The digital economy offers substantial benefits to everybody. However, these same opportunities also provide malicious actors with the means to disrupt systems. Furthermore, they cause damage to organisations as well as the life of individuals.
Information technology law and cybersecurity play a critical role in combating any malicious acts that are perpetrated.
The ease with which the Internet of Things (IoT) has enabled society to better their lives and make things more convenient has increased our dependence on such technologies. This dependence has also made us a little laidback and carefree at times. These same technologies have also equally given an opportunity to criminals. They commit crimes in cyberspace which has the potential to cause substantial harm.
All sections of society are vulnerable to attacks and those that do not prepare themselves adequately can suffer unfathomable consequences. The understanding of legislation and systems like information technology law and cybersecurity is therefore of paramount importance. These systems become important tools to enable our protection in cyberspace.
Companies can face massive liabilities if their employees do not understand the intricacies of the cyber world. Any inadvertent misuse of technology that individuals may regard as harmless fun can have dire consequences. Awareness of information technology law and cybersecurity is the first step to understanding how one can keep themselves secure while using technology. It is imperative that organisations and individuals all operate within the bounds of the law.
