The last few years have shown us that no one is safe from a security breach. There are hackers in all corners of the world waiting to stumble upon a security hole and penetrate your computer systems. Therefore, it is logical to ask the question: “when will a hacker strike?” The evolution of security allows you to protect yourself in order to reduce the security holes in your systems and even to see them coming. It is essential to have a security system at the cutting edge of technology regardless of the business field in which you are.
Security is an essential aspect to integrate in your daily life!
Did you know that 52% of attacks come from within? In addition, many breaches are the result of techniques as simple as sending a username and password back.
Depending on the business sector, a cyberattack can have different motivations. According to the latest statistics, the bulk of attacks are aimed at:
Demanding money and ransomware (the number one source of cyber security attacks)
Gaining access to unauthorized areas
Stealing personal or financial information (less than a quarter of cyber attacks)
Making networks unavailable for a period of time.
If your corporate IT security is not sufficiently effective, it is sometimes easy to penetrate your networks to access your data! Investing in a reliable security system allows you to effectively protect yourself against any type of attack, or to be able to react to it if necessary.
There are several ways to protect yourself from cybercrime.
First of all, it is important to equip your operating system with powerful protection software and to make regular updates of all your networks. Regularly backing up your information is also important to protect yourself from data loss. Get a checklist and consider protecting your mobile devices as well.
A cybersecurity expert will be the best resource to protect your computer systems and educate you on the subject.
