What is cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the part of information security related to protecting computers, networks, programs and data from unauthorized access. Because cybersecurity involves protecting both corporate and personal data, the areas of cybersecurity and data protection overlap. Privacy, integrity, and availability security goals are paramount to both elements of information security.

The importance of cybersecurity

Cybersecurity

As the boundaries of business continue to expand beyond the organization – with accelerated digitization, enhanced connectivity and migration to the cloud – it’s critical that security is built into your entire business environment. A holistic approach to security gives your company the ability and confidence to scale and greater flexibility when it comes to adapting to any future exposures. In the face of potential cyber risk, resiliency is key. Companies that build security into their business ecosystems by design, rather than adding it retroactively, give themselves the greatest opportunity to operate confidently in today’s changing threat landscape. Supply chain security is a growing business issue.

We know that four out of ten cyberattacks are now believed to be caused by the extended supply chain, not the enterprise itself. When it comes to the cloud, security by design is critical. Not only does it increase the resilience of the company, cloud security is also important to the business because it provides better results. As artificial intelligence (AI) becomes the new growth engine for organizations, attacks on AI continue to emerge. Cyber risks in data protection and integrity, as well as algorithm manipulation, are often detected. Comprehensive cybersecurity tailored to your specific business will allow you to scale in almost any situation and adapt to future exposures.

Types of cybersecurity

Critical Infrastructure Security

Refers to the protection of systems, networks, and assets whose continued operation is considered essential to the security of a given country, its economy, and the health and/or safety of its population. Examples include hospitals, electric grids, and traffic signals.

Application Security

A set of best practices, features, and/or capabilities added to an organization’s software to prevent and address threats from cyberattacks, data breaches, and other sources. Examples include anti-virus software, firewalls, and encryption programs that prevent unauthorized access.

Network Security

Works against unauthorized intrusion into internal networks. It protects internal infrastructure by denying access to it. Examples include additional logins, new passwords, and controlled Internet access.

Cloud Security

Protects cloud platforms, services and data from unauthorized access and disruption through access control, network security and secure cloud configurations. Examples of cloud security include encryption and disaster recovery.

Security

The Internet of Things The Internet of Things (IoT) – networks of connected devices, appliances and machines with embedded software and sensors that can send and receive data over the Internet – offers new opportunities and impressive growth potential, but also creates new vulnerabilities. IoT security requires innovative ways of thinking to protect the enterprise and its customers from intruders and data misuse.

Cybersecurity Threats

Because of the rapid acceleration of digital transformation, opportunistic phishing campaigns, disruptive information security operations and financial constraints creating unprecedented challenges for businesses around the world, security strategies and practices are being tested like never before. Cyber threat information plays a critical role in determining what organizations can do to overcome uncertainty, become stronger in the wake of crises, and build resilience to cybersecurity threats.

Malware

Malware describes a range of malware, including backdoors and remote access trojans (RATs), information stealers such as banking Trojans, spyware, ransomware, downloaders, viruses and worms. Cybercriminals use several infection vectors to activate malware and other dangerous software, such as hacking into networks, buying access to an account on a dark network and encouraging users to click a dangerous link or attachment in a social engineering phishing email. Once inside, the malware can:

  • Install additional malware or tools.
  • Covertly obtain information by transferring data from hard drives. and applications (spyware, banking Trojans, backdoors, RATs).
  • Move around the network to spread itself or other malware.
  • Block access to key components of the network.
  • Disrupt certain components, corrupting files and sometimes . Disable the system (ransomware).

Ransomware

Cybersecurity

Ransomware gains privileged access to computers through initial infection vectors or other malware and stops services and processes to perform encryption actions. When files are “locked” with an encryption key that only the attacker possesses, the affected user is asked to pay money-often in bitcoins-to regain access to the encrypted files. The ransomware itself poses no real risk. The risk is the impact on the business due to the sudden interruption or removal of a service or process, or the loss of reputation. Ransomware as a Service (RaaS) now allows less skilled attackers to use these threat tactics with a high reward for little effort or technical knowledge.

Spyware and banking Trojans are information-stealing malware designed to infiltrate a target computer, collect data and transmit it to third parties without consent. While banking Trojans often collect financial account information through web injections, spyware can also refer to legitimate software that tracks data for commercial purposes. However, malicious spyware is used to profit from stolen data. Spyware will perform the following actions on a computer or mobile device

Introduce – through an app installation package, a malicious website or an attached file.
Track and collect data – through keystrokes, screenshots and other tracking codes.
Almost all information thieves send stolen data via a command and control server to the cybercriminal behind the attack, who uses it directly or sells it to other parties.
