Hyderabad: Corporate hackers are constantly upgrading their hacking mechanisms and this in turn is putting pressure on organisations to upgrade their security infrastructure. As data becomes more and more essential for enterprises, network threats are also increasing. Businesses have to stay a few steps ahead of the cyber crooks in order to keep their business safe and here are four common cyber-attacks that an organisation may face or has already faced.
According to GajShield Infotech, enterprises can keep themselves safe by just having information about these threats. And these include:
Man-in-the middle attacks are sneaky cyber-attacks that involve hackers snooping on your data while it is being transmitted through the communication channel between the sender and receiver of a file. Such attacks can be prevented by using network firewalls to block them out from the data networks altogether.
This is a type of malware through which hackers extort money or information from their poor online victims. The biggest targets of this kind of cyber-attacks are financial institution, schools and colleges as well as municipal corporations. Basically, wherever hackers have the chance to make money. These threats can be dealt with by deploying anti-virus software and updating it regularly.
Despite its well-known nature, people still fall for phishing traps on the internet. Hackers generally send misleading details to their victims through bogus emails. Links or other details on the emails can result in data breaches on the end of the victims. To prevent this, email protection can be deployed in organisations.
Brute force attacks
Perhaps the most energy-consuming cyber-attack for hackers. This involves cyber-attackers trying to guess the login-password of users within an organisation by trying out all the permutations and combinations.
“To safeguard against this, organisations can use context-aware IAM systems. We can enhance the cybersecurity infrastructure of your organisation by protecting your data network from these, and several other, types of threats,” says Sonit Jain, CEO of GajShield Infotech.
