Everyday Cyberattacks

Updated: Apr 23


The most common attacks that companies need to prevent nowadays.


Global connectivity and reliance on information technology offer numerous advantages but also give rise to various challenges in the field of cybersecurity.

The significant value generated in the IT sector makes it a constant target for cybercriminals seeking to compromise companies' reputations by exploiting system vulnerabilities and user negligence to access data and information, with the aim of making data public, extorting, and even spying on industries.

There are many types of cyberattacks; in this article, we will discuss three of the most common ones that companies constantly face.


Phishing



Phishing attack is the use of digital baits such as fake emails and instant messages with the aim of gaining the trust of users so that they provide legitimate access data to a system without realizing they are being deceived.


Prevention of this attack requires a multifaceted approach, including the implementation of anti-phishing filters, the adoption of two-factor authentication, and most importantly, educating users to identify signs of phishing.


Ransomware



One form of malware that encrypts data from a system, which can range from the local machine's disk to cloud banks, not only compromises the integrity of the data but also affects the availability of the affected systems. When successful, the criminals demand payments for the release of the systems.


Preventing this attack involves regularly backing up data, constantly updating software to fix known vulnerabilities, using effective antivirus solutions, and promoting user awareness of safe online practices.


DDoS 



Overloading servers or networks with massive volumes of fake traffic, making services unavailable to legitimate users, can cause systems to go down, creating greater opportunities for invasions or compromise of digital products.


Preventing DDoS attacks involves using specialized mitigation services, configuring firewalls to filter suspicious traffic, and continuously monitoring network traffic to identify abnormal patterns.


Conclusion


Networks are becoming increasingly complex, and losing control of inventory and network architecture makes prevention actions difficult.

The challenges presented by common cyberattacks demand a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity. User education, proactive security practices, and the implementation of advanced technologies are crucial to protect the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of data in an increasingly complex digital landscape.

Continuous investment in research and development of security solutions is essential to address the constant evolution of cyber threats and ensure a safer online environment for everyone.
