Under Attack: Hosting & Internet Service Providers
The digital universe depends on always-on IT networks and services, so ISPs and hosting providers have become favorite targets for cyberattacks.
In less than a decade, cybersecurity has become a critical systemic issue for the world economy. More than ever, modern life and international commerce depend upon a functioning and accessible Internet. According to Cisco, 66% of the global population will have access to it within two years, by which time there will be 5.3 billion total Internet users. Further, more than 70% of the global population will have mobile connectivity, and the number of devices connected to IP networks will be three times greater than the total number of people on Earth.
