Cyberattacks can cause several different types of losses to your business. Loss of access to vital customer information or critical financial data can be detrimental. Brand reputation can be impacted if customers lose faith.

Understandably, over the last year, cybersecurity has dropped in priority for many businesses. Yet, now is the time for a focus on cyber protection.

Security risks and breaches have always been a focus for small and medium-sized enterprises, but as we know from the Cyberthreats Report, the intensity is increasing exponentially. However, many small- and mid-sized business owners say they lack the time or resources to tackle cybersecurity issues effectively.

“Knowledge is power,” as the adage says. Knowing where your business is vulnerable to a cybercriminal’s endeavors is the first step to cyber protection and mitigating risk. In this infographic, we take a look at the top 5 SMB vulnerabilities."

GPU usage is gaining popularity these days, specifically in the field of Deep Learning. It is a known term among data scientists who struggle to get high-performing code. Looking at GPU development’s brief history, GPUs and CPUs form the GPGPU (General Purpose Graphics Processing Unit) when set up parallelly.

GPGPU can analyze graphic data or image data. GPGPUs were developed to get something that can process the graphic or image data better but later found it fit for computing the scientific data as the processing of image or graphics data involves the use of matrices.

“GPGPUs were started to be used for scientific computing problems around 2001 by implementing matrix multiplication. But implementing the first algorithm on GPU made researchers realize that GPU is faster. "

With its multitude of features, robustness, and cutting-edge technology, Magento claims its position among the leading eCommerce platforms worldwide. By 2020, 1.4% of the global eCommerce sites and 2,50,000 merchants used Magento.

Cloud computing has radically turned the way IT infrastructure used to work. Cloud not just enabled smart business solutions but also incorporated new infrastructure delivery models. Though it is a boon to the industry, there are various security measures that you should keep in mind. According to some statistical industry reports, the projection says that the cloud migration service will grow to 9.5 billion dollars by 2022. Apart from that, perks like scalability, faster deployment, and increased efficiency will bring more customers to opt for cloud services.

In conjunction with cloud growth, cybersecurity experts are showing concerns about data security and system security. Cloud needs a direct connection with the internet for working. That makes it prone to cyber-attack. Therefore, cybersecurity in the era of the cloud should be a priority. According to a recent survey, 86% of the technical decision-makers acknowledged that a deficiency of a qualified security workforce is responsible for making slower progress of the cloud services. This article highlights the biggest cloud security challenges that 2021 will face.

“Cyber threats and security challenges keep on emerging every day. Thus, businesses need to embrace security-first minds. This year, we are about to face some of the biggest security challenges that every business should plan to mitigate."
