OP-ED: The Payments Industry’s Role In Cybersecurity
The Covid-19 pandemic has fast-tracked America’s dependence on technology, with more people digitally connected than ever before. As a result, reports of cyberattacks have skyrocketed in both frequency and scope.
Daily online breaches in the U.S. have up to quadrupled since the start of the pandemic, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, leaving no industry unscathed. One step that organizations can take to combat these growing attacks is to support National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, which takes place each October. Championed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, this is a collaboration between government and industry to make sure every American has the resources needed to stay safe and secure online.
