The Biggest Threat To Cyber Security Is Human Error
WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES, RIGHT? Well, hacker’s are counting on it. You may likely have some security measures in place, like anti-virus software but hackers are experts in tom foolery. Cyber attackers’ methods are constantly evolving and their main point of entry into private networks and systems is you. Hackers attack using sophisticated strategies, referred to as Social Engineering that are designed to trick and mislead people into sending money, handing over personal information, network passwords, and downloading malware.
Malicious software (malware for short) can lock you out of your computer, send out dangerous spam, spread fake websites with malware or deny access to entire portions of the internet. Hackers can even use the opportunity to disguise themselves under your identity and infect others in your network. Oftentimes you may not even be aware that your computer or network has been infected. Without a proper cyber security plan, this could mean disaster for your business and employees.
Is My Computer Infected With Malware?!
Phishing through email is the most common type of attack. Phishing can also occur over text messages, phone calls, or fake websites. Malware usually has a very specific purpose and the method in which the malware does it’s damage can be helpful in categorizing what kind of malware it is, however once a computer or network is infected the bulk of the damage is already done.
