The internet has grown rapidly from when it used to be a means of communication by scholars and scientists to the creation of worldwide web. This medium has enabled information to be transmitted by billions of people worldwide. Most of the gadgets we use like phones, televisions and even cars are internet-enabled. Information security is very important for companies and people personally, since it would be a huge loss if data could not be protected properly.
William Saito feels that the most important role of security has not been realized. This is a disturbing issue, especially in the business world. Cybersecurity is not viewed as a priority which increases risk and internet insecurity. Hackers hence have easy access to personal data and information about companies. The seriousness that comes with building environmentally secure structures should also be implied when it comes to internet security.
The risks that come with internet insecurity include decreased productivity from the companies, blackmailing, loose of motivation from employees, lawsuits from the business partners and bad reputation. The public eventually will have mistrust in the quality of the service provided. This also causes deterioration of the internet. Internet security is a global issue which should have companies and the public collaborate against.
