NCP’s mission is to help businesses perform at the top of their game through strong and agile remote data communications access. With this in mind it is appropriate that NCP is sponsoring the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) Nürnberger Versicherungscup taking place in Nuremberg from 15-21 May 2016.
Ever since Edward Snowden revealed the extent of state-sponsored espionage over the Internet in 2013 businesses have been acutely aware of just how vulnerable data communications are to being intercepted. It is no coincidence that in the same period cybercriminals have also stepped up their attempts to spy on organisations. For example, the use of Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) malware and ransomware to try to capture valuable financial or customer data for financial gain has risen dramatically. While no defense method is ever 100% impregnable the risk of snooping and theft of sensitive data can be significantly reduced by encrypting it using VPNs.
