Most Common Threats to Data Security:
- Insider Threats: Many threats come from current and former employees, or even partners and suppliers who have access to your network. Supermarkets are revolving doors for employees, some good and some not so good. Even good employees can inadvertently click on a link and in comes malware or a virus.
- Spear phishing: This is a lot more common than you may think and is a very effective means to fool people into downloading malware and Trojan viruses. These will cause harm to your device/PC and in many cases, place applications that collect sensitive information. Spear phishing is very sophisticated; 80 percent of malware attacks come from phishing. Beware, innocent looking but fraudulent emails can have a significant financial impact on your business.
- Ransomware: This is a particularly troublesome threat that encrypts your data files rendering them unusable until you pay handsomely to unlock them. Don’t think for a moment that just because you got them unlocked
you’re good to go… The bad guys may very well still have your data which they can review at their leisure.
- Newer Threats:
- IoT (Internet of things) – it’s here and growing fast.
- CaaS (Crime as a Service). These guys are very sophisticated and they know how to break into your network and then extract large quantities of your cash as you rush to use their services to get your network and data back.
