The world is evolving and so is technology. Most of the technology is associated with digital advancements. It has made everything available online. The only security we were worried about once was limited to our house security, but now comes cybersecurity that is equally important and needs to be taken care of. It is very important because our personal details are compromised due to cybersecurity threats.
This has led to the utter need of proper cybersecurity. Compromising on it would lead us to lose confidential information about us. This has ruined the lives of individuals, nations, and organizations in the past and to avoid repeating it in future proper awareness should be spread all over about cyber crimes and cyber security.
Cybersecurity mainly secures our computer systems, data stored in it, it’s hardware, software, etc. Many hackers may try to get into your digital space to steal the data stored in it for various purposes. To seal your system with protection, the Biometric system has been brought in.
To stop the increasing rate of cybercrime, the privacy of individuals, organizations, and nations should be preserved well.
Biometric is a system that stores and secures an individual’s personal information in a fingerprint of DNA. They also work as identity proof in most places. Usually, fingerprints are used to access a system or mark attendance at your job, so that no one else can impersonate you.
Fingerprint scanners are widely available at hospitals and offices. We can get a clearer picture of the usage of biometric systems in normal life. It is one of the finest technologies that has evolved in the past few years and proved to be quite helpful in different fields. The system only allows those individuals to pass through whose fingerprints match to ones recorded in the system. This is one of the best ways to ensure security.
Although Biometric security is becoming the most preferred method to safeguard companies and personal information, we still cannot get over the threat of hackers breaking in the cybersecurity by fooling the biometric security systems.
This fact is not hidden that a fingerprint can be copied and framed on an artificial finger. It can be used to unlock payment systems or mobile devices, also it could give hackers access to our bank accounts.
Although cybersecurity companies are working hard to stay one step ahead of the hackers and criminals, somehow or the other they find a loophole and break the security.
The best way to solve this issue is to spread fear in criminals. They are not scared of doing these deeds because they know that they won’t be caught. The first thing is to be strict enough to abide by the cybersecurity laws and punish the criminals severely so they may think a thousand times before committing a cybercrime again.
Other than that, technology companies should have key questions in their security systems and answers should be kept confidential to store the information and to avoid spoofing.
