Technology is everywhere we look: in students' hands, in college classrooms, in
modern vehicles - and also right in front of you. While technology provides a
host of benefits, criminals increasingly use technological devices and the
Internet to commit cybercrime. Unfortunately for society at large, more
cybercrime is happening than ever before. The costs of criminals' digital
efforts are increasing, as well.
Statistics indicate that the number of reported cybercrimes skyrocketed 400%
from 2013 to 2015, in only two short years. At the end of 2015, the global cost
of digital attacks on and through technological devices ranged between an
alarming $400 and $500 billion. While nobody is a psychic, as the rate these
digital crimes have increased steadily overpass years, it's reasonable to assume
worldwide costs will rise to dollar values in the trillions.
Cybersecurity Ventures, a digital crime research agency, suspects that by 2021,
global costs of digital crime will cost approximately $6 trillion that year.
Cybersecurity attacks are booming more dangerous than ever before. For example,
most people remember Hillary Clinton's private email servers being hacked into
and its content leaked, which very well may have cost Hillary the 2016
presidential race. If Hillary Clinton had employed top-notch security standards,
prying eyes couldn't have hoped to splice through her stringent layers of
personal cyber security.
will only get worse in coming years. PriceWaterhouseCooper's Global State of
Information Security Survey conducted earlier this year found that more than
half of respondents have been forced to up their security budgets in protecting
against cybercrime. Thanks to criminals, the costs of many products and services
will only increase, although not by dramatic margins.
cyber attack begins, individuals and organizations alike have no way to recoup
their losses. As such, the most effective method of dealing with cyber crime is
prevention. Rubica is a personal cyber security application that works on
personal computers, tablets, and smartphones.
Fortunately for users, constant monitoring one's personal cyber security
situation isn't necessary. Rubica runs in the background of devices that have it
installed, and is monitored around the clock to help prevent cyber attacks
before they start. The application employs human-assisted machine learning
in detecting cyber attacks.
regularly monitors the websites users visit and how they regularly browse the
Internet. When the application picks up on behavior outside of normal activity,
Rubica helps shut down devices and block out potential intruders, informing
registered owners of strange activity. Upon owner authorization, access is
granted, with devices turned back to operating status. Another benefit this
top-notch security app provides in maintaining users' personal cyber security is
the ability to call security experts all hours of the day,
Roderick Jones created Rubica just last year, in 2016. As such, this personal
cyber security application is programmed to deal with criminals' latest and
greatest methods of destroying data, harvesting it from devices, or remotely
the most favorable aspects of Rubica is it being constantly connected to
Internet connections through a virtual private network, or VPN for short. No
matter what public wifi users log on to, the data they transmit through the
Internet is guaranteed to be safely preserved, preventing prying eyes from
finding out information they're not supposed to.
