Information security has been undoubtedly one of the most prominent sections that all the companies in the current market are focusing on. that said, whenever we start discussing about the gate implication of not paying enough attention to build let secured network, the main factor that comes into play in any discussion in that respect, is the lack of involvement off the top-tier organisations of the global market, and the law enforcement authority. Whenever we take an example about the most recent cyber-crimes, the most prevailing fact that remains common throughout the crimes is the inability of certain professionals who were unable to identify a cyber-attack in the nick of time. But as we all know, the global market is going through some immensely impressive changes, and this has benefited the organisations to an exceptionally large extent. If we put our attention towards the information security consultants in the UK, and analyse the benefits that they provide to their clients in view of the current situation of the global market With respect to the approach towards the rising number of cyber-crimes, we can very well see the efficacy and their attention on the fact that the rightful involvement of law enforcement authorities will soon result in an exponential rise in the numbers of organisations who would want professional and top notch quality consultancy services in most of the important domains. To gain a better perspective about why an organisation that is not paying attention to hiring the best consultants for factions like crisis management consultancy, cyber security consultancy, risk management consultancy, business continuity, disaster recovery consultancy, and much more, should start paying attention to the same, let us first focus on the efforts that the law enforcement has taken in the past few weeks. This analogy will show us how these efforts have helped the service providers in reaching out to new clients. THE STEPS TAKEN BY LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES According to a recently published article that involved law enforcement authorities like the FBI and Europol in ceasing a virtual private network, stated that the website known as “bulletproof hosting service” was taken down by the law enforcement authorities, as a step taken under their joint effort, “Operation Nova”. Other domains that were taken down under this operation, included some of the most infamous VPNs like, Safe-Inet-Insorg-.org, and Safe-Inet.com. All of which were directed towards providing cyber-attackers, a platform where they can conduct various illicit operations like, ransomware attacks, and ecommerce skimming. The main reason why it is beneficial for an information security consultant is the fact that these VPNs were designed to maintain the anonymity of the cyber-attacks who uses it. That said, this effort has proven that the companies will now have an ease in implementing new information security measures that would involve them to taking measures like introducing measures like “bring your own device”. Therefore, companies will now have a sense of security while taking certain steps towards cyber-security. This can be correlated with the rise in the importance of the role of cyber-security consultancy in the corporate sphere; because it is with the help of these firms, that all the “consultancy service seeking organisations” get the resilience against cyber-crimes.

The year 2020 has been daunting so far, but the most dangerous aspect that prevails in the global market is the rising number of phishing attacks around all the industries. Many research studies have indicated that with Black Friday and Cyber Monday approaching, the impact and the number of phishing attacks is set to increase on a global scale. Security researchers from around the world have already begun to notice a significant spike in the number of phishing attacks which can be seen as a build up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday taking place on November 27th, and November 30th respectively. Some of the recently published reports have stated that there is an increase of over 13 times in the last six weeks as far as phishing emails are concerned. WHY DO YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS? You might be thinking that such information is irrelevant because everybody in the corporate world and among the general public understand the severity of malicious cyber attacks, and the impact of the same is pretty much evident if we take a look at the daunting statistics of 2020. But what you seem to overlook, is the fact that these numbers aren’t exactly painting a better picture because none of the easily accessible literary pieces of evidence would tell you that some of the most prevalent phishing campaigns have witnessed an increase in the intensity of the execution by 80% since early November this year. This obviously acts as a reminder for all the organisations to stay vigilant towards the sale season. And eventually tells all the players in the global market that both Black Friday and Cyber Monday will witness a significant growth in cyber crime. STATISTICS THAT SHOW IT’S A BUILD-UP FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON One of the most interesting facts that clearly showcase that the numbers are purely a build up for the holiday season is that the following four weeks from 8 October, has witnessed an increase in the number of fake offers that were in some way or other related to phishing attacks and campaigns. This number has doubled globally, rising to 243 in the beginning of this month, compared to 121 that were at the start of October. This obviously indicates that cyber security consultants around the world are facing difficulty in doing their job properly. This somehow places all the organisations at a jeopardizing state because if the professionals are not being able to provide them with the services that they hold expertise of, they are clearly leaving all their clients exposed to the network breaches that could ruin the entire existence of some of the most influential organisations around the world. Below are some of the other pointers that clear the misconception about these cyber-attacks being moderate and usual in nature: • If I was to say that in every 826 emails, one of them is a phishing attempt, related to “November shopping days” would it alarm you at any level? If not, the fact that it is far more daunting, if we were to compare it with 1 such attempt in 11000 emails, at the starting of October surely will. • Another haunting fact is that 9th and 10th November alone saw an exponential rise in the number of phishing attacks than the initial 7 days of the month October.
