Cyber-attacks are amplifying across the globe. Personal cyber security is important as not only have they becoming more frequent, but they are also impacting a wider band of digital terrain. A single worm, like WannaCry is capable of infecting countless systems in numerous ways, from email accounts to personal data to service disruptions and other critical disturbances. The impact and frequency has led to billions of dollars’ worth of damage, to include lost productivity. Damage to an organization's reputation is not even calculable.
Budgets are growing tight due to the continued cost of cyber security protections and investigations. While this regularly effects large organizations, small to mid-size businesses are also seeing an increase in cyber-attacks. Hackers are turning toward smaller targets because they are less likely to have secure infrastructure and even less likely to know they are under attack. A worm or virus can sit in a computer system for months and without an in-house IT team, small businesses are especially vulnerable.
Personal Cyber Security Thwarts Hackers
A target that is even smaller than a small business is you. Personal cyber security is becoming more relevant as hackers seek out any vulnerability. But if small businesses can't even afford an IT team, and if large organizations are finding their budgets shrinking due to cyber security costs, then how can an individual protect themselves?Personal Cyber SecurityCompanies like Rubica are offering personal cyber security options that protect individuals, and the businesses they own or work for, from cyber-attacks by providing easy-to-use and affordable cyber security options.
I rarely recommend any company's products or services, but Rubica has options and features that warrant a serious look by executives and Board members alike.
Far too often individuals do not adhere to security protocols because the protocols are too complicated or time-consuming. People take short-cuts to avoid tedious passwords or log-in requirements.
Doing so on your personal device is risky, but when your personal device is also synced to business applications results can be catastrophic. By providing employees with personal cyber security features, Rubica protects individuals and businesses.
Some of Rubica's defining features include its mobile ready app that can be downloaded on desktops, tablets and smart phones. There is no need to install hardware or receive staff training on its use. The app is backed by Rubica’s signature concierge service. The cyber ops team is on call at any time. But users rarely need to contact Rubica since the security app and service does its work without the user even knowing.
Personal Cyber Security Solution by Rubica
Rubica’s cyber ops team provides personal cyber security to any user who has downloaded the application. Once downloaded, the cyber ops team is able to monitor your data, identify threats and alert you when necessary. By paying attention to personal behavior patterns, the team is able to deduce when an imposter has entered a network.

Users are able to access the app and view activity graphs, review investigated events and ask Rubica staff questions about their data or any ongoing threats. Rubica’s personalization means that your personal cyber security choices just got more personal.
