According to the report by Data Security Council of India, the cybersecurity market in India is expected to grow from USD 1.97 billion in 2019 to USD 3.05 billion by 2022, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.6%—almost one and a half times the global rate. While many factors are contributing to this high growth rate, three factors are significantly driving the Cybersecurity demand market in India—digital growth, increase in cyberattacks and stringent regulatory mandates.
So while we’re instructed to stay at home and work remotely , let’s use this time to upskill ourselves each day on newer aspects . We bring you the top TED talks on Cybersecurity you must watch during this quarantine time.
Hackers: The Internet’s Immune System
With 899,680 current views, this TED talk features Cybersecurity Expert Keren Elazari. Here she talks about how hackers in the cyber world have compelled the experts to improve and evolve.
While she says that some hackers are bad guys, many others are working to fight government corruption and advocate for our rights. By exposing vulnerabilities, they push the Internet to become stronger and healthier, wielding their power to create a better world.
Everyday Cybercrime — And What You Can Do About It
This TED talk has 335,195 views and features James Lyne, the Global Head of Security Research at Sophos, one of the worlds largest security firms. He discusses how a malware can corrupt someone’s data to hack into their bank account. He mentions that these viruses are coming through simple things one does each day without thinking twice. James also reminds viewers that it is not only the NSA that is watching them, but ever-more-sophisticated cybercriminals, who exploit both weak codes as well as their gullibility.
Where Is Cybercrime Coming From?
In this TED Talk, Caleb Barlow who is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Cynergistek talks about the origination of Cybercrime. Cybercrime netted a whopping $450 billion in profits last year, with 2 billion records lost or stolen worldwide. Security expert Caleb Barlow calls out the insufficiency of our current strategies to protect our data. His solution? We need to respond to cybercrime with the same collective effort as we apply to a health care crisis, sharing timely information on who is infected and how the disease is spreading. If we’re not sharing, he says, then we’re part of the problem.
Your Human Firewall – The Answer To The Cybersecurity Problem
Personal data is a precious commodity but sometimes we can share too much? Rob thinks we need to develop our human firewall in an age where some much of our lives is online. Rob May is chairman of IoD Surrey, an award-winning entrepreneur and Managing Director of ramsac limited.
Your Smartphone Is A Civil Rights Issue
The smartphone you use reflects more than just personal taste … it could determine how closely you can be tracked, too. In this TED talk, Privacy Expert Christopher Soghoian details a glaring difference between the encryption used on Apple and Android devices and urges us to pay attention to a growing digital security divide. “If the only people who can protect themselves from the gaze of the government are the rich and powerful, that’s a problem,” he says. “It’s not just a cybersecurity problem — it’s a civil rights problem.”
The 1s And 0s Behind Cyber Warfare
Chris Domas is a cybersecurity researcher, operating on what’s become a new front of war, “cyber.” In this engaging talk, he shows how researchers use pattern recognition and reverse engineering (and pull a few all-nighters) to understand a chunk of binary code whose purpose and contents they don’t know.
Governments Don’t Understand Cyber Warfare. We Need Hackers
The Internet has transformed the front lines of war, and it’s leaving governments behind. As security analyst Rodrigo Bijou shows, modern conflict is being waged online between non-state groups, activists and private corporations, and the digital landscape is proving to be fertile ground for the recruitment and radicalization of terrorists. Meanwhile, draconian surveillance programs are ripe for exploitation. Bijou urges governments to end mass surveillance programs and shut “backdoors” — and he makes a bold call for individuals to step up.
