Ensure Your Cyber Security Is Up-To-Date

Former CEO of the National Cyber Security Centre, Ciaran Martin said “a major cyber attack on the United Kingdom is a matter of ‘when, not if’”.


The need for greater cyber security is inextricably linked to the growing trend of technological advancement across the globe. Cyber threats on a personal, enterprise, and, government level continue to increase.


So, what do increased threats toward organisations mean for you?



Some common types of cyber attacks include:

·      Denial-of-Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) Attacks: These attacks overwhelm systems with traffic, rendering them unable to respond to legitimate requests

·      Phishing Attacks: Phishing involves sending fraudulent emails disguised as legitimate sources to extract sensitive information from targets

·      Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) Attacks: In MitM attacks, an attacker intercepts communication between two parties, allowing them to steal or manipulate data unnoticed

·      Malware Attacks: Malware encompasses various malicious software like viruses, worms, and ransomware that infect systems to steal data or disrupt operations

·      SQL Injection: This attack targets databases through malicious SQL code injections to access or manipulate sensitive information

·      Cross-Site Scripting (XSS): XSS attacks exploit vulnerabilities in web applications to inject malicious scripts into websites visited by users

·      Whale-phishing Attacks: These are targeted phishing attacks aimed at senior executives and stakeholders within organizations

 

These cyber threats highlight the importance of cybersecurity measures such as strong encryption, network security tools, and user education to mitigate risks and protect against potential attacks.

 

By focusing on mitigating these risks, companies can enhance their cybersecurity posture, mitigate risks, protect sensitive data, maintain operational continuity, comply with regulations, build trust with customers, and stay ahead of cyber threats in today's digital landscape.
