Cyber security
Nice informatve article. The main reason why the generl everyday using public does not care much about their cyber security is because they do not think that they'd also can become the victim of online hacks. Privacy to everyone is very important and it is important also to take that freedom and privacy seriously. Therefore it is essential to secure our connections with vpn services. I use PureVPN US servers to mask my IP from snoopers and hackers.

cyber resilience is possible with awareness, appreciation, and action
There are a few fundamental problems with expeting action from awareness.

 

Awareness is simply knowledge. I know that the moon has one sixth the gravity of the Earth, but I do not appreciate what that feels like because I have not experienced it.

Appeciation or understanding requires some experience. 

Action can not occur until we have an aprpeciation or understanidng, but to make matters worse, a large percentage of the cybersecurity industry isn;t able to articulate what actiosn should be taken. They are great at talking about the problem - whining about it even, but ask for a solution and they bolt leavinga  cloud of dust.

 

The solution here is to make awareness interactive and engaging.Let people know exaclty what a breach looks like rather than just talk about it. Let them look at the problem through their own lens. All of us have either family or funds (or both) that we want to protect from the wrath of cybercrime; so start with engaging and interactive dialog aroudn these.

 

Once understanding ahs been achieved, then practical solutiosn are key around not just threat prevention but all aspects of the cybercrie lifecycle:

(1) asset management: discovery and classification fo assets

(2) vulnerbaility management: discovery and remediation of vulnerbailities in those assets

(3) threat mangement: prediction and preveniton of threats that those vulnerbailties are exposed to

(4) incident management: detectiona dn response to attacks that were not able to be predicted and prevented when threats

(5) continuity management: confirmation and recovery of breaches that were not able to be detected and responded to when attacks

(6) crisis management: acceptance, avoidance, transfer, or mitigiation of impacts that have manifested because breaches were not confirmed and recovered from quickly enough

 

Awareess, appreciation and action can achieve cyber resilience.

Identity theft
Great and nice informative article on the importance of cyber security and how it can be maintained. However, one important thing is missing, and that is the deployment of vpn server to protect our IP. It is important to anonymize your IP with a genuine vpn server like PureVPN and that is reliable because it offers encrypted online connection so that's a big plus.

Everything You Need to Know About DNS Attacks
It's important to understand DNS, potential attacks against it, and the tools and techniques required to defend DNS infrastructure. This report answers all the questions you were afraid to ask. Domain Name Service (DNS) is a critical part of any organization's digital infrastructure, but it's also one of the least understood. DNS is designed to be invisible to business professionals, IT stakeholders, and many security professionals, but DNS's threat surface is large and widely targeted. Attackers are causing a great deal of damage with an array of attacks such as denial of service, DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijackin, DNS tunneling, and DNS dangling. They are using DNS infrastructure to take control of inbound and outbound communications and preventing users from accessing the applications they are looking for. To stop attacks on DNS, security teams need to shore up the organization's security hygiene around DNS infrastructure, implement controls such as DNSSEC, and monitor DNS traffic
