Ransomware, malware, phishing, viruses, spam, hijacking, trojans and hacking – a non-exhaustive list of threats we are facing every day, without knowing it.
Someone might be ransacking your phone or bank account right now. Do you know how a cyber attack could harm your business, or private life?
Hacking may seem mysterious, but understanding what it is and what you can do to avoid it helps you to stay safe.
Hacking is a huge, growing business, cyber criminals can easily target almost everyone in the world. The goal is still the same: to get as much money as possible, as easily as possible, with as little risk as possible. Today, crime has radically changed with the Internet and online technology, cyber criminals have become highly organised and efficient. They are faster in taking up new innovations than we are. Stealing money from millions of people around the world in one particular moment may sound impossible but it is surprisingly easy for hackers, with innovations and automated tools. And moreover – WE ALLOW THEM TO DO THIS TO US.
The battle against the cybercriminals, who are trying to “infect” you and your business, is very similar to the fight of medical doctors against human diseases. It’s much more important in both cases, to prevent the infection before it spreads widely.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. Your cyber security must be strengthened today, not tomorrow.
