HONG KONG, October 27, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Globally renowned VPN service, PureVPN, places emphasis on the importance of encryption for internet-enabled devices. With more than 7 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices worldwide, and dozens of new devices connecting to the internet every second, the need for a secure online infrastructure has never been more important.
As more and more devices host user's Personal Identifiable Information (PII), a loophole can cause serious exploitation in a user's personal data. Since these devices are connected to each other, the magnitude of a hack can affect billions of internet users globally.
With gigabytes worth of data being shared each millisecond, valuable information gets routed via public and private WiFi networks, which are both equally unsafe without encryption.
NCSAM 2020 begins the conversation of bringing forth security measures that secure user's online activities. The event also highlights the need for having encryption algorithms in place with the adaption of high-speed internet services such as 5G and WiFi 6 - which are both going to revolutionize the way we use and access the internet.
The month-long movement reminds internet users to look back on their internet habits and empowers them to do their part by being cyber smart.
