We believe the proliferation in electronic communications and thus the exponential growth in sharing of data has reached proportions hospitable for an epidemic. The extreme quantities of data and lackadaisical attitudes which accompany the security of today’s information have produced a bounty ripe for cyber-attack from around the globe.
The shocking volume in growth of cyber -attacks is what we at Asgard believe are a taste of things to come. In 2017 alone the number of cyber-attacks is up 20% over 2016, with more than 7 billion records exposed. Unsecured data and minimal security policies means there is easy money to be made by selling individuals data on the dark web. This treasure is fueling a raging fire that few are taking steps to avoid.
Asgard believes a future of efficacious electronic communications including 0-Trust architectures will only be achieved once business and individuals realize that there is a balance or harmony to be maintained between what is useful as public data and what information necessitates being held private.
The future is now! This is why Asgard has chosen to provide our clients with the tools and support to not only navigate the tumultuous digital landscape of the 21st century but to move ahead of competitors who are ignoring the warning signs.
