It was a rainy day in 1969 when one computer first talked with another. Since that fateful day, computer networking has been a thing. A big thing. Networking catapulted humanity into a global realm of ever-accelerating communication and connectedness.
It's the network engineers who make this possible, keep it secure and make it better. But along with the indisputable benefits of networking come some indisputably scary risks. As originally envisaged, computer networks are inherently insecure, and they need a formidable set of resources and skills just to keep our data safe and the bad guys at bay. Networks expose us to cyber-attacks, rogue software, DDoS attacks, and that's just the hors d'oeuvres.
