We are living in the digital age where our lives are more dependent on the IT and connected systems. Businesses are also migrating to modern digital technologies (e-commerce, e-retails, e-banking, e-games, online entertainments, and so on) to provide value-added services to their customers and bring easiness to their lives. Today, digital technologies offer a lot of services but at the same time, carry a threat to privacy and security of data that has been generated while user’s interact with these technologies. With so much information available and lots of access points, it is the golden age for the attacker/criminals to attack the system for data breaches to be used for fun and profit. 

Recent surveys have estimated that security threats to businesses rise by 20% each year, which results in a loss to billion of dollars annually. Specifically, in the UK the cyber-attacks are increasing at a rapid speed. To have better defence against cybercriminals, the UK cybersecurity industry requires more than 3 million security experts by the year 2022.
