Why should I consider cyber security services?
As technology has advanced, so has the increase in cyber attacks. There are many risks connected to cyberattacks, which is why it is in your best interest to be aware of the terms attributed to them. The most common include the following:
- Hacker, attacker, or intruder: These are terms that typically connect to individuals who are trying to exploit weaknesses in software and computer systems for their own gain. Even though their choices can be just inquisitive, they are still in breach of the systems that they are intruding. There are two outcomes that can come from this: sheer mischief (making a virus with no intentionally negative impact) to malicious activity (stealing or altering information), and malicious action (stealing or modifying information)
- Malicious code: Sometimes, this is known as malware and can include any code that can be used to attack your computer. Viruses and worms can be malicious code. Malicious code generally has the following characteristics:
- It could allow you to actually do something before it contaminates your computer – for instance, an email attachment or a link to a web page.
- Some types generate without user intervention and start by exploiting the vulnerability. Once the victim’s computer has been impacted, the malicious code will try to find and infect other computers. This code can also reproduce via email, websites, or network-based software.
- Some malicious code acts as one thing while in reality, they are doing something completely different. For example, a program that alleges it will speed up your computer may really be transmitting confidential information to a remote hacker.
You will want to keep each of these elements in mind when looking out for cyber attacks. However, the most important step you can take is to meet with a skilled cyber security expert with vast knowledge on how to protect your information and devices by prevention, detection, and response.
