Malwares Types of Cyberattacks

Malwares are malicious software such as spyware, ransomware, and viruses.

Malware can usually breach a network through vulnerabilities such as clicking on a suspicious email link or installing an unauthorized application on your office computer.

Once inside a network, malware can steal sensitive information or produce more harmful software within it which can affect our operations.

Social Engineering This is a type of cyberattack. This is the process of psychologically manipulating people into divulging personal information. This may also be a form of phishing wherein the attacker takes advantage of the person's natural curiosity or trust. An example of advanced social engineering is voice manipulation. In this case, cybercriminals take your voice from sources such as social media. By manipulating it, criminals can pretend as you to call your friends and relatives to gain your credit card or other sensitive information.

This will help pinpoint our organizations' weak points. 6. ## Install 24/7 network and endpoint monitoring for anomalous behavior.

Protect yourself from insider threats! Some Tips

Do an inventory of your critical assets. These can be physical or logical, such as systems, technology, facilities, or people.

What are these critical assets? customer data for vendors, proprietary software, schematics, and internal manufacturing processes.

Here are some guide questions: What critical assets do we possess? Which are our priorities? What is the current state of these assets?

Enforce policies. Everyone must arrive at a common and shared understanding of the importance of cybersecurity.

Continuation... Organizational policies must be clearly documented, implemented, and monitored. Most importantly, everyone should know the scope and limitations of their rights with regard to their access to company data.

Conduct cybersecurity workshops regularly. Stability in cybersecurity is not only through actions— it depends on attitudes, beliefs, values, and habits.
