Types of cybercrime and how to defend your business against attackers

How to defend your business against the 4 most common types of cybercrime.

As Technology evolves, security increasingly becomes essential. Cyberattack cases continue rise, and every industry and organisation will encounter some type of attack at some point, whether it is for personal data through Phishing or other threats such as Malware, Botnet software or a Hacker.

There are many ways to encounter cyber-attacks and cyberterrorists. Some of the most common cyber security threats are:

  1. Ransomware
    A malware-based attack enters a network, encrypting files and information through public-key encryption.
  2. Phishing
    Phishers pose as a legitimate company or organisation, utilising fake emails to extract personal data such as card numbers and passwords. After casting a wide net by sending a large number of emails, they receive information from users who engage with links contained in the emails believing them to be legitimate.
  3. Hacking
    In an effort to obtain important data, information and breach privacy, hacking aims to acquire functions partially or completely within a system, network, or website.
  4. Botnet software
    This is a remote attack through spam or malware that seeks to disrupt the information technology infrastructure.
