Even more the field of Cyber security. There is nothing greater than finding new ways and technology to protect individuals and corporate against Cyber Crime.

IN MY OWN CORNER OF THE VIRTUAL WORLD.
The security of your servers, workstations and network has always been important, it has however not always been a priority within most small to medium business.
For the most part, if a user had a password and anti-virus on their workstation, they felt secure.
It was true, that in the past most black hat hackers or malicious actors would target larger businesses and smaller businesses were relatively safe.
With the ever-evolving cyber security landscape changing and new and evolving threats such as ransomware, this has however changed, and the security of your network is now more important than ever.
Those malicious actors, or black hat hackers as they are known have come to understand that the larger businesses tend to have dedicated cyber security teams, and with multiple redundancies in place, better security. Whilst they are not impenetrable, the risk vs reward in hacking these companies is no longer the hackers favour.
With smaller and medium sized business in the past not really considering IT security, it is far easier for them to gain access to your environment and hold your data to ransom.
In addition, regulation and laws such as POPI which looks at the security of personal and user data makes considering your IT security not just essential but required by law.
