As we’ve come to realize, the idea that security starts and ends with the purchase of a prepackaged firewall is simply misguided.”Art Wittmann
Cyber threats are a constant in today’s world and every business, organization, and institution is at risk of a cyber attack. From ransomware attacks designed to lock users out of their systems to rouge wireless devices and Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.
Common Types of Cyber Attacks:
- Network Security Attacks
- Wireless Security Attacks
- Malware Attacks
- Social Engineering Attacks
The workplace is rapidly changing and businesses have to keep up with the pace of new malware viruses and malicious actors. One of the most common security flaws for businesses and organizations is Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). BYOD is when employees use personal and work devices to perform job duties. While these devices and applications provide a great benefit to any business, they also represent a risk. All it takes is one employee to click on a malicious link to access your network. This is why security training and awareness for employees are vital to prevent a cyber attack.
60% of businesses fold within six months of a cyber attack according to a study from Inc.com. Consult with EVERNET today and speak with an IT expert to protect your business from cyber threats.
