      Cyber Security Threats

      Understand the range of threats that organisations commonly encounter:

      Denial of Service Attack

      A DoS or DDoS attacks swamp an organisation’s network servers with such a large amount of traffic that the systems are brought offline.

      Malware

      Malware comes in various shapes and sizes, from spyware to viruses and worms. These can damage systems and steal confidential company data.

      Ransomware

      These types of attack are on the increase. When infected, a system is encrypted and locked and an attacker demands a fee to unlock the data.

      Phishing

      Phishing is one of the most common types of attack. Malicious Links are included in an email tricking users to disclose sensitive credit card details or login credentials.

      Spear-Phishing

      This is a much more targeted form of phishing which targets specific individuals and specific organisations with fraudulent attempts to access confidential information such as bank details or monetary transactions.

      Zero-Day Exploits

      When a vulnerability is announced, software and hardware vendors are quick to release a security patch. However, attackers can often create an exploit before the patch is released.

      Phishing and ransomware are two of the biggest cyber threats that organisations face, with some 5.4 million attempted attacks reported in 2021. They are also some of the most financially damaging forms of attacks for businesses and therefore require special protection measures.

      90%

      Of Data Breaches Caused By Human Error

      Improving User Security: Introducing ‘Thinking Space’

      The single most effective way of stopping a cyber attack is taking the time to stop and think. 90% of data breaches in the UK are down to human error. So, whether that’s clicking a link on an email or on a pop-up ad online, always stop and consider if it is genuine and from a legitimate source.

      Likewise, when browsing the web, stop and check if the website is secured by an SSL certificate before inputting data. These simple tips can dramatically reduce your organisation’s risk to cyber attacks.

      As well as testing the security of your IT infrastructure, Akita’s consultants can assess and improve your users’ awareness of cyber security threats. By utilising these services, organisations can significantly reduce the likelihood of becoming victims.
