In today’s digital landscape, cybersecurity has evolved from merely a priority to resembling an extreme sport.
NEWORDER, a distinguished ISO27001-certified cyber-secure lifestyle brand specialising in tactical managed cyber protection, is acutely aware of the increasing incidence of cyber breaches.
This rise is closely associated with several concerning trends within the industry.
These include a pervasive complacency among organisations, often rooted in the erroneous belief that “it won’t happen to us,” fuelled by a lack of awareness and the absence of a trusted cybersecurity partner.
Furthermore, organisations make the mistake of appointing individuals without the requisite expertise when they choose not to collaborate with a dependable partner.
Celebrating our partners in extreme sports
Before we delve into the urgent need for cybersecurity awareness, we want to celebrate the invaluable contributions of our strategic partners in extreme sports that have been instrumental in shaping the NEWORDER brand.
These invaluable partners include:
- Jungle Rush FMX – The No. 1 Freestyle Motocross team in Africa.
- Marksmen Aerobatic Team – A global formation displaying aerobatic sensation.
- Bellevue Equestrian Centre – Home of a premier professional equestrian arena in Pretoria.
- Blood Hound MMA – Known for its relentless pursuit of perfection.
Understanding the connection – cybersecurity and extreme sports
To appreciate the connection between cybersecurity and extreme sports, consider this: both demand a high level of preparedness, meticulous planning, and the ability to make split-second decisions under intense pressure.
In extreme sports, enthusiasts continually push their boundaries, learning to anticipate and adapt to ever-changing conditions.
Similarly, cybersecurity experts must constantly refine their skills and strategies to outmanoeuvre the ever-evolving digital threats that abound.
However, a concerning trend looms large – complacency.
The attitude of “it won’t happen to us” has been a contributing factor to the alarming increase in ransomware attacks and data breaches, as many organisations remain oblivious to the real threats lurking in the digital shadows.
The solution to this is teamwork and coordination. Athletes often rely on seamless collaboration in extreme sports to achieve their goals.
The same holds true in the realm of cybersecurity, where harmonious coordination between different components of an organisation’s security infrastructure is vital.
The adrenaline rush of cybersecurity
The adrenaline rush experienced in extreme sports mirrors the high-stakes, fast-paced world of cybersecurity.
Every decision carries significant weight in the digital landscape, and the threat landscape is in constant flux.
Both domains teach us that, with calculated risks, unwavering determination, and a well-executed strategy, we can navigate even the most unpredictable scenarios and emerge victorious.
NEWORDER’s ExtremeX event serves as a wake-up call – it’s time to dispel the myth of invincibility and embrace the reality that cyber threats can affect anyone.
The lack of knowledge and the absence of a trusted cybersecurity partner are the reasons for the increase in ransomware attacks and data breaches.
