Paramount 1100 Words You Need

the most important thing or component, more important than anything else, salient, major, chief, significant, supreme, utmost, dominant, principal, top, overriding, vital

Security is of paramount importance

The term security is one of the key words that we use more often than we would like to. Unfortunately the bombings and attacks like the one experienced at Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport scare us all. I am sure this incident will make government officials step up their physical security projects. There is already a law waiting to be voted on to arm private security guards with weapons. However, I am betting that cybersecurity will be forgotten. Last year the entire Aegean electricity grid stopped working after a cyberattack and everything in the whole region came to halt. I cannot imagine what would happen if the same happened in and around Istanbul, where most of our factories and businesses are located.
