Data & Cybersecurity



Cybersecurity is the act of protecting a business’s software and operational technologies from cyberattacks and unauthorized intrusions. Investing in cybersecurity is one of the most important measures an organization can make regarding the safety and reputation of their business. Cyberattacks typically aim to commit online fraud, change, export, or destroy sensitive information, extort money from victims or compromise business assets.

The best way to prepare for the fight against cybersecurity threats is to be aware of the signs. When you know what kind of activity to look for, it becomes much easier to identify cybercriminals in action. Some common cyber-attacks include:

  • Computer Viruses: As one of the most well-known cybersecurity threats, computer viruses aim to alter the way the computer operates without notifying the user.
  • Spyware: Spyware is a program that monitors user activity and often installs programs without your consent to steal personal information.
  • Phishing: Phishing is the act of disguising oneself as a trustworthy source and then attempting to steal sensitive financial information through a fraudulent email or direct message.
  • Ransomware: Ransomware threats are becoming increasingly common. This attack encrypts, and occasionally exfiltrates, corporate data and threatens to publish or perpetually block access to the data unless a ransom is paid.
