Expansion of threats following the development of network technology.
Security measures becoming crucial for all network users.
Today, the Internet is a part of daily life for people of all ages. Inter-business communications, various administrative services, and individual financial transactions have become more and more dependent on e-mail, the web, and social media, while new uses for the web have begun to take hold.
At the same time, the expansion of such network use has created various security issues. One of the main causes is that users who are not as computer literate have increased and thus are more likely to be victims of misconduct using computers. As a result, they can be unwittingly involved in attacks on others. A second cause is that the systems that support these increasingly sophisticated networks are becoming more and more complex, making it difficult to construct and operate systems free of vulnerabilities or other security issues. Compounding this, knowledge regarding methods of attacking such vulnerable networks as well as tools that exploit vulnerabilities are being freely exchanged or bought and sold in public and private forums and markets. If broad, effective countermeasures are not adopted, society may suffer considerable consequences as a result of the continuing weakness of these vulnerable networks.
For everyone who uses networks to continue to seek greater efficiency and create new value, comprehensive security measures would need to be implemented to contain threats that keep growing on networks. The implementation of security measures will require cooperation both in and between organizations as well as countries.
