Common Types of Cybersecurity Attacks in 2019

Cybersecurity concerns are daily struggles for all industries. Recent studies and trends show a significant increase in breached data and hacked systems from sources that are very common in the workplace, such as loT and mobile devices. While most cyber-attacks are politically or criminally motivated, it only takes one cyber-attack to completely destroy your organization overnight. What does a cybersecurity attack look like? How can you protect your business from the most common types of cybersecurity attacks? Keep ready for answers to these questions and learn about the most common types of attacks and how to prevent, prepare, and respond.

Sophisticated Attack Techniques

From phishing and malware attacks to web and password attacks, cyber attacks hit individuals and businesses every day. Phishing is the act of sending deceitful communications that seem to come from a reliable source. Generally, phishing happens though email with the intention of swiping sensitive and personal information such as login information and credit card data. Spear phishing attacks are aimed at particular individuals or businesses, while whale phishing attacks target high-profile employees.

Another common type of cyber-attack is known as Malware. This is term used to describe viruses, worms, spyware, and malicious software that activates with the user clicks on an unknown, dangerous link. Once malware is inside your system it can block access to important parts of the network, convert information from hard drive, disrupt systems, and install more harmful software.

SQL injection is a web attack that occurs when an attacker embeds malicious codes into a server and causes the server to give information it normally would not. This data includes many items but some of the well-known items are user lists, customer details, and sensitive company data. Another web attack known as cross-site scripting (XSS) is where an attacker sends pernicious content scripts from a reliable and reputable website.

Have Appropriate Security Protections in Place 

How can you protect your business from the most common types of cybersecurity attacks? You take a systematic approach to security.
