The concept of why cyber security is important is a question many people have been asking since the advent of the internet back in the 1990s. Take the WannaCry attacks of May of 2017 for example, the attack affected about 150 countries infecting over 300,000 computers. These attacks are not uncommon, and they often cost the companies or individuals money and time as well as possibly ruining sensitive information that is stored on that device. Between 2013 and 2015 alone the cyber security industry lost over $500 billion resulting from hacks that temporarily took computers down and maimed company’s abilities to make money for a certain period of time. Cyberthreats are expected to globally cost economies up to $6 trillion a year by 2021 based on conservative estimates. Cyber attacks to medical equipment alone are estimated to hit $101 billion by 2018. All of these attacks prompted US President Donald Trump to sign an executive order in May 2017 that helps improve personal cyber security for US devices focusing primarily on infrastructure and federal information technology works.
One such company that can provide these kinds of services to help protect your computer is Rubica which exists to protect individuals’ “digital rights” to a secure and safe environment that is at less risk of being hacked or broken into as well as deterring the people who are committing cybercrimes. Rubica has programs that are powerful enough to protect world-class corporation computers and but also help protect individuals and families who have computers at home that they want to keep safe as well.
Rubica will protect your devices no matter where or how you use them. There is also a contact department where you can contact people live in person to help you with any security problems you are having with your computer or their software. Rubica is also funded by some of the top software giants in the industry including Lerer Hippeau Ventures, Upfront Ventures, Slow Ventures, and Expa Labs to name a few.
