Abstract

In the rapidly advancing landscape of the digital age, cyber security has become a critical concern for individuals, organizations, and nations alike. This abstract explores the evolutionary trajectory of cyber security threats, tracing their origins, development, and the corresponding adaptive measures employed to safeguard digital assets. The journey begins with an examination of historical milestones, such as the advent of the internet and the subsequent proliferation of interconnected devices. As technology advanced, so did the methods employed by malicious actors, leading to the emergence of diverse and sophisticated cyber threats. The abstract delves into the evolution of malware, ransom ware, and other forms of cyber attacks, highlighting their shifting tactics and the increasing frequency of large-scale breaches. Additionally, the abstract investigates the role of social engineering in cyber security threats, emphasizing the human factor as a vulnerable entry point for attackers. The psychological aspects of manipulation and deception play a crucial role in the success of phishing and other social engineering techniques, demanding innovative approaches in defense strategies.
