What is CyberSecurity?
Types of Cyber Attacks
Ransomware is exactly what it sounds like! It is designed to extort money from you by blocking access to files and data until you pay the ransom, usually in the form of online-only currency like bitcoin. And just because you’ve paid the ransom, it does not guarantee the scammer is going to unlock your files.
Malware is a tricky one, as it can usually go undetected by most firewalls and antivirus software. Its goal? Gain unauthorized access and wreak havoc to your computer systems!
Ever receive a money transfer via email or text that you weren’t expecting, asking you to enter your banking details? That is a form of Social Engineering, where they try to trick you into revealing sensitive information. The scary thing is Social Engineering can be combined with any of the threats listed above to make you more likely to click on links, download malware, or trust a malicious source.
Phishing is one of the most common types of cyber attacks. You will typically see it in the form of fraudulent emails that resemble emails from reputable sources. This makes it one of the harder cyber attacks to defend against, as the best protection is education and a solid technology plan. The goal of phishing attacks? To steal your sensitive data, like company credit card numbers, employee login information, etc.
Why is CyberSecurity Important?
Cyber criminals stole an estimated 12 billion records in 2018.
Reports are forecasting they will steal an estimated 33 billion records in 2023.
Statistics show that globally the majority of Cyber Threats are aimed at North American companies.
We do not want your valuable data to become a part of those statistics!
Cyber attacks are designed to:
