10 steps to cyber security is a part Certified Ethical Hacking v10(CEH v10) training you learn the cyber security attacks and their impact.

As technology continues to evolve so also do the opportunities and challenges it provides. We are at a crossroads as we move from a society already entwined with the internet to the coming age of automation, Big Data, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Despite the threat of viruses and malware almost since the dawn of computing, awareness of the security and sanctity of data with computer systems didn’t gain traction until the explosive growth of the internet, whereby the exposure of so many machines on the web provided a veritable playground for hackers to test their skills – bringing down websites, stealing data, or committing fraud. It’s something we now call cybercrime.

Since then, and with internet penetration globally at an estimated 3.4 billion users (approximately 46% of the world’s populations), the opportunities for cybercrime have ballooned exponentially.

Combating this is a multi-disciplinary affair that spans hardware and software through to policy and people – all of it aimed at both preventing cybercrime occurring in the first place, and minimizing its impact when it does. This is the practice of cybersecurity.
