Cybersecurity incidents in the Caribbean continue to rise, showing that cyber defense is no longer an issue only for developed countries. According to various surveys, attacks rose internationally by 48 percent in recent years resulting in substantial remedial and reputational costs to the companies and governments concerned.
Cybersecurity focuses on protecting computer systems from unauthorized access or being otherwise damaged or made inaccessible. It has recently fallen under media scrutiny. This can be attributed to a rapid increase in attacks and a substantial impact on organizations. As attacks continue or worsen in frequency and sophistication and focus not just on disrupting critical infrastructure but also compromising vital information that could be used in the future. Defenders may soon find themselves short in terms of the support necessary to stave off threats.
