UNDERSTAND YOUR EXPOSURE
CYBER-CRIME: One of the world’s greatest and newest threats
The internet has created a platform for cyber-criminals to launch attacks from anywhere in the world with attackers continually changing their methods and potential targets.
The primary channel is via email, but also through social media sharing platforms and the IoT (Internet Of Things) which allows for connecting multiple devices and platforms digitally.
The attackers range from hackers, hostile operators, company employees and organised crime syndicates. Many companies have been unable to recover from a severe cyber attack.
TYPES OF ATTACKS
The motives can be to either destroy or to exploit a company or individual.
• CNA (Computer Network Attack) – to disrupt, degrade or destroy a system or information
• CNE (Computer Network Exploitation) – to acquire, steal or exploit information
In addition to the above, ransomware and malware is designed to entice a user to open or access the software and to specifically glean information from you via Phishing and other methods.
