Major Obstacles Prevent Greater Adoption of Cybersecurity Technology

“Threats from enterprising hackers, cybercriminals and other online ne’er-do-wells have never been more ubiquitous. Yet our ability to combat those intruders remains hampered for a variety of reasons,” Francis Dinha, OpenVPN CEO, said.

Although many businesses and consumers recognize the threats posed by hackers, they often fail to act on those concerns, says Francis Dinha, CEO of OpenVPN, which powers the VPN service Private Tunnel.

“Why are so many of us ill-equipped to manage rapidly changing internet threats?” Dinha asks in his latest column for the Forbes Technology Council.

He proposes three major hurdles to adoption of better protections:

1. A transition from protecting our devices to protecting our information in the cloud.

2. Frequent muddling of terminology used in marketing messages about internet security.

3. The persistent evolution of internet-based threats.

Rather than implicitly trusting a tech provider’s messaging, Dinha says, it’s best to do your homework whether for your family or your company.

“Go to the source for verification,” Dinha advises.

Francis Dinha is available to talk about this topic and others, such as the three transformative technological trends our country will experience in the near future, the spike in cyber crimes and what people can do to protect themselves.
