DEFINITIONS OF SOME OF THE MOST COMMON CYBER ATTACKS
Malware. Malware is often accidentally downloaded by users who mistake it for a real application that can help them with the task at hand. In fact, malware intends to either corrupt your data or take over your system. Malware is the all-inclusive name for a variety of different types of software that can harm your computer, server, or network, including computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and spyware.
Phishing. Phishing is a cybercrime that is usually sent via email. It runs off the hope that the recipient will believe it is a real email. It usually asks the user to input confidential information, like bank account or credit card information, so that it can be stolen, or it contains a link that goes to malware that then infects your computer. The name comes from the sport of angling as the idea is to hook or "fish" for passwords and other valuable data in the "sea" of an online environment.
Spear phishing. Spear phishing is a more advanced form of phishing. Here, the emails appear completely legitimate because they impersonate someone whom the recipient would know. This is a popular weapon against businesses and governments because the information of others is easily available online, such as the CEO of a company, and even their personal information can be found.
Ransomware. Like the name implies, ransomware is an attack that encrypts data on your system and hides it from you, until you pay a ransom, or it threatens to make the information public unless you pay up. In 2018, the entire city of Atlanta's municipal government was shut down due to a ransomware attack. These are often found in emails that recipients download, and once downloaded, the cyber criminals can take over the recipient's computer. Trimen Computer Systems in Johnson City can help keep all of these cyber attacks at bay. Call us today!
Is Your IT Infrastructure at Risk?
- Have you assigned appropriate access levels and authority to restrict data and applications to the right people?
- Can you create permission reports that tell you which devices and personnel have access to data and applications?
- Are the connections you use to access online services protected against unauthorized users, malwar, cyber attacks, and other risks?
- Are your data and applications password protected, and are your employees using sufficiently strong passwords?
- Do you use automated backup programs for data protection, rather than random and irregular manual backups?
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
- More devices means more potential vulnerabilities and cyber attacks
- Easily lost, stolen or compromised
- Difficulty separating work information from personal information
- Use of outside servers and systems
- Cyber attackers only need to find a single weakness
- Backdoors can exist in software and hardware
- Elevated level of privileges allows users to perform a variety of malicious actions
- Unmonitored access privileges can lead to misuse and potentially expose confidential data
