As we progress into the twenty-first century, it is easy to realise that technology has infiltrated every aspect of our life. It has revolutionised the way we work, transformed the way we live and enhanced the way we play.
While the benefits to this technological revolution are immeasurable, there are also a number of potential dangers. It’s easy to start questioning the reliability and robustness of such systems – are they secure against any unauthorised access? If the systems are infiltrated, how easy is it for hackers to create havoc in our personal or professional lives? Is your social networking account safe? What happens if someone gets access to your online banking? Are your online transactions taking place in a safe environment?
In such a landscape where information security takes the limelight, MITA is organising an Information Security Expo.
The aim of this EXPO was to raise awareness about information security topics that affect us all; including Internet safety and cyber bullying, cyber attacks and identity theft, secure e-commerce transactions, spam and phishing.
The MITA Information Security Expo was held on Saturday 11th October at SmartCity Malta, spread over three areas.
