    Cyberthreats are an unfortunate consequence of digitalization and cloud computing. Moving forward with the times, malicious agents have developed sophisticated ways of attacking your businesses, stealing vital information, and holding you to ransom.

    You need to be aware of the following commonly occurring cyberattacks:

    1. Malware It is any malicious program that infects a device or network. The intention can be to corrupt critical data or take control of your system.

    2. Spyware This type of malware hides in your system and records critical information such as bank details and passwords.

    3. Phishing attacks These attacks target humans. They lure targets into divulging sensitive personal data and identifiable information.

    4. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attacks These attacks disrupt computer networks and business continuity. They flood
    the network with requests and overload the system, preventing the fulfillment of legitimate requests.

    5. Zero-day attacks These attacks exploit existing flaws and vulnerabilities in our system that are unknown to us.

    Any possible malicious attack on organizational networks or IT systems that disrupt business operations and causes financial or data loss is a cybersecurity threat. The current threat landscape is extremely widespread, with new and more advanced attack techniques developing frequently. It’s impossible to list and explain all cybersecurity threats here, but I’ll highlight the most significant threats here.

    Malware – Malware is malicious software, like a virus, spyware, ransomware, trojan, or worms, which can cause data breaches, loss of credentials, and network disruptions.

    Phishing attacks – Attacks where hackers pretend to be trusted entities to trick you into disclosing personal and sensitive information, network login credentials, or downloading malware into your system.

    DDoS attacks – These occur when attackers overwhelm your network and servers with continuous requests, disrupting its services.

    Data breach – Theft of business-critical data and sensitive information by a malicious actor.

    Software vulnerabilities – Known software vulnerabilities create gaps in the operating system. It’s crucial to keep all software updated and install patches immediately.
