Four Most Common Cyber Security Threats

There are many motives for cyber attacks. Cyber attackers may take a system offline and demand money to restore its functionality. Ransomware, an attack that requires payment to restore services, is now more complex and sophisticated than ever. That’s why cyber security professionals continually defend computer systems against various types of cyber threats. Cyber attacks hit businesses, big and small, as well as private systems daily. The scariest part is that the variety of attacks has increased very fast.

Tracking advancing and increasing cyber attacks is the answer to better cyber security. It’s important that cyber security professionals work to increase their knowledge of threats and cyber security information. They should have an extensive understanding of the following types of cyber security threats:

↗ Denial of Service

A denial of service (DoS) attack is a cyber-attack in which the perpetrator seeks to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users by temporarily or indefinitely disrupting services of a host connected to the internet.

↗ Malware

Malware or malicious software, is any program or file that is intentionally harmful to a computer, network, or server. Types of malware include computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, ransomware, and spyware.

↗ Phishing

Phishing is a method of trying to gather personal information using deceptive emails and websites. The goal is to trick the email recipient into believing that the message is something they want or need.

↗ Man in the Middle

A man-in-the-middle attack is a type of eavesdropping attack, where attackers interrupt an existing conversation or data transfer. After inserting themselves in the “middle” of the transfer, the attackers pretend to be both legitimate participants.

Cyber security practices continue to evolve as the internet and digitally dependent operations develop and change.
