Some of today challenges

Cyber threats are always trying to take advantage of different social situations like nowadays COVID 19 situation People are often directly exposed to cyber threats due to increased online activity, and COVID 19 situation drastically increased the need of remote working and technology dependency CyberSecurity products help a lot but people cyber security culture should constantly be increased by awareness activities A particular subject for awareness and improve in people online hygiene could be the FAKE NEWS problem which in last years had a BIG social impact. People should be more critical thinking regarding quality and validity of the media content.
