“It’s hard to believe that Cybersecurity Awareness Month has been going on for 20 years. If you think back 20 years…Facebook wasn’t around, YouTube was still years away, the first iPhone was still four years away,” reminisces Norman Adkins, a cybersecurity specialist based in Jacksonville, Florida.

These and other innovations have introduced new attack vectors, new platforms for data to be stolen from, and brought new people into the ecosystem. “Cybersecurity was in its infancy two decades ago. 100 years from now, we’ll probably look back and say that in 2023, we were still in cybersecurity infancy. But compared to 2023, 2003 was essentially the Stone Age of cybersecurity,” Adkins says.
