3 Quick Cyberattacks Putting Business at Risk


Cyberattacks are not uncommon in the world today. There are many ways that these attacks can happen and they can be devastating to a company’s digital infrastructure. The three cyberattacks that we will be discussing are hackers, malware, and phishing scams.

Cybersecurity experts have been warning about the dangers of cyberattacks for many years now, but companies are still not taking action. The main argument is that the industry is too complicated and there are many steps in the process to take. In a recent  IBM’s 2020 Data security report says that it took businesses up to nine months (precisely 280 days) to detect and contain a breach in 2020. Nearly 50% of respondents stated that the biggest problem in their company is lack of visibility into what’s happening on the network.

1. Hackers: Use various methods to access sensitive information from a company’s data storage. They might use vulnerabilities or security gaps in the system to get into the network and steal information.

2. Malware: Is malicious software that is installed on a device without consent from the owner of the device. This software is designed to damage data or disrupt the system’s operation for purposes of sabotage or theft of personal information such as credit card numbers and bank account passwords.

3. Phishing cams: Are fraudulent emails or internet sites that try to trick recipients into disclosing private information such as passwords and account numbers. Hackers work several different ways to gain access to the information they need. One way hackers can break into a network is through vulnerabilities in the system, which can be created by poor design, errors, or lack of security
