Cyber Security Threats

We are all targets for cyber criminals. Don't think that even if you are a small business, the bad guys will overlook you - they wont. Unless you have effective cyber security defences you are likely to become a victim.

Electric Spider – The Cyber Security Specialists

Lets take a look at some of the more common threats every organisation small and large faces.

Ransomware

A real problem in recent years, this is still one of the most common. Malware delivered to your pc usually lock your data and displays payment demands.

Phishing

This threat involves tricking the user into clicking on dangerous links typically sent to you by email. A fake website then captures your personal data and details.

Password attacks

A hacker runs software that usually systematically tries to guess your password using dictionary words or brute force by more complex combinations.

Denial Of Service

The criminal floods your systems and/or website with unusually high volumes of data. The attack is launched through compromised devices It will bring down the affected website and systems.

Social Engineering

Stealing your digital profile and identity is horrendous; because your confidential data is open to criminal exploitation. Its a complex and hard attack to recover from often taking a lot of time.

Unpatched Software

You need to keep up to date with software from Microsoft, Oracle, Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash to name a few. Dont bring your organisation down by ignoring the threats this poses.

Cyber Attacks

 

These are a few of the more common threats and attacks that you might have read or heard about. But it is not the full picture and criminals continue to develop complex and clever methods to attack us.

They are developing new attack techniques and exploits every single day, even when you are asleep.

Remember there is no single “silver bullet” solution that can address every cyber threat. Its not just some software that will help. The best protection is both technical (hardware and software) and how we use our technology plus our own knowledge and awareness (human).
