Ten Cybersecurity Misconceptions That Could Become Very Expensive.

Many companies think they are too insignificant or uninteresting to be a target for cyberattacks. This has been proven to be a gross misconception - and just one of ten cybersecurity misconceptions that can have serious consequences for you and your business. Get informed now and take action before you get into trouble.   

Cybercrime has become such a ubiquitous topic that we hardly notice the numerous reports of ransomware attacks, data breaches, and other scams anymore. This, however, is a big mistake. Cybercrime has become a lucrative business field that generates billions in revenue. It is estimated that cybercrime now generates more revenue worldwide than the drug trade. We are all affected by this and it is therefore important that we assess the risk correctly. Mistakes may prove very costly.      

 

No one is too small to be a potential victim 

Any person or small business with a digital presence and use of computers is a potential victim. Most hacker attacks happen with little spectacle but are carried out by opportunists in search of easy prey. Among the most popular targets are companies with unpatched security vulnerabilities or misconfigurations. Even if you think you are too insignificant a target you should scan your network for suspicious activity as soon as possible.      
 

Cybercrime - a business where almost anyone can get in on the action

Did you know that there are ready-to-use kits available on the Internet that allow even a technical layman to launch cyberattacks? What's more, there is support available for those who fail even at very low technical hurdles. The most popular phishing sets are designed for Office 365, PayPal, Amazon, Google or Instagram. Thus, it is clear that almost anyone can launch a cyberattack, and that such an attack could hit you as well. Deal with the issue now and protect yourself.
