Cyber Security risks for St. Maarten – Daily Herald

1 Mins read

The Daily Herald published an article on February 4, 2015, about the cybersecurity risk St. Maarten faces. Here’s a quick summary for you.

Cybersecurity will become more prominent as there is an increase in devices being connected to the internet. The country’s stance on cybersecurity is critical as hacking incidents become more frequent, for example, the hacking of Sony Pictures.

The security challenges in various industries should be highlighted, and risk analyses should be conducted to show vulnerabilities and to be better prepared for potential cyberattacks. Some governments are establishing specialised Cyber Security Agencies that would provide dedicated and centralised oversight of national cybersecurity functions.

Hacking risks can hit firms’ reputation and profitability. As cybercriminals evolve, so must the countermeasures, which puts the specialised group in action seeing they are committed to helping to address cybersecurity issues.

Bermuda, being a small country, may be seen as an unlikely target for cyber crime; however, it is best to be safe than sorry.
