In less than 300 words, summarize the most important features and benefits of this product or service
Cyber security needs a holistic approach instead of a siloed approach consisting of a patchwork of solutions. Effective regulation of digital world, setting up accountability frameworks and creating widespread social awareness are going to play a critical role. While security firms are stepping up efforts on creating better technical solutions and there are growing number of calls for effective regulation, very little is being done on creating social awareness. Awareness needs to include the presentation of cyber security landscape and challenges faced in a manner that the society in general can comprehend. Reaching out to non-technical cyber security professionals and community leaders is necessary in order to build broad based social support for an end-to-end systems approach to security.
