What is a cyber attack?

Phishing

Phishing is an attack process using fraudulent emails as their main weapon.  Their goal is to mislead a recipient into giving away sensitive information, bank information being a prime target.  Phishing tactics continue to gain ingenuity as schemes become increasingly more complex and sophisticated causing potentially catastrophic losses.

Malware

Malware short for malicious software, is a term for any software that is designed specifically to cause harm.  With many points of entry malware can be used for a variety of purpose to either gather data, harm systems or even take control.

Ransomware

Ransomware is a malicious software that once downloaded onto a system will threaten the data with harm or destruction.  An attacker will then request a payment for the safety of the data. If you are unable to pay your data will most likely be lost.

MITM

MITM or Man in the Middle attack, is an attack that occurs when there is a vulnerability in a connection.  As an example, an unsecured WIFI sign, an attacker can position themselves in the middle of that connection, stealing all the information received and sent.  This can reveal any sensitive information going through the connection.

Today’s security threats are increasing both in number and severity. Small and medium sized businesses are now more vulnerable than ever, particularly with the many variants of viruses, worms, trojans, ransomware as well as socially-engineered phishing scams.  Leaving your network inadequately protected is an open invitation for compliance violations, data loss and significant business disruption. 

It’s important for businesses of all sizes to understand where their company’s security vulnerabilities exist – from technical network incursions to nefarious actors that prey on weaknesses within your own internal processes.  We work with numerous client’s who require financial and healthcare data security compliance including HIPPAA, PCI DSS, SOC2/SOX compliance.

Here are a couple of painful real-world examples that we’ve witnessed first-hand –

warning

Fast-growing and busy contractor suffered a sophisticated phishing attack which spoofed company and vendor email. Result: six-figure wire transfer to fake vendor bank account.
