It’s that time of the year again, renowned security experts are lined up to give you the tools to substantiate your cybersecurity budget claim for 2016. We too are inclined to help you to show that cyber is very important. Here we go:
The EU helps us to redefine the term data breaches. Hence more breaches will be recognized. And the cause of data breaches: misconfigured ICT components, lacking patch management procedures and the human factor. People fall victim to social engineering attacks. Yes, they still do. And, as Always, corporate management. Still too little and too late aware of security risks.
Since more and more components are mobile devices, we might need to take more care of our devices , especially since we use them for authentication purposes and mobile (nfc) payments. Mobile devices are more valuable than ever. Hackers will hack into your mobile. Do they?
Anuway the cause will be: misconfiguration and the eternal human factor. Theft. Loss. And people like jailbreaking and rooting devices for extra features. And less security…
Yes, they are so advanced, that now they hide in traditional attacks like phishing attacks. The cause? Mostly your own and other governments…
Ah, yes. The eternal ransomware. Heartless criminals know how to social engineer into your organization. Bad, bad. There are tools to prevent vulnerabilities. Or move to Linux, or CBM64.
DNS and so on
Criminals DDoS the internet infrastructure. Bad? Yes, but if your services are not accessible, they are not vulnerable, are they? So DDoS may well be the best protection against data breaches…
