Some Common Types of Cyber Threats You Should Know About
As the world becomes more and more digital, new cyber threats emerge every day. It’s hard for businesses to stay on top of all of the potential cyber threats they could face. This is why it’s crucial to implement a cyber attack prevention plan created by security experts.
Attackers use malware to plant data breach software onto your business devices. When they activate the software, they gain access to sensitive data like bank account information. They can steal personal information, block access to your own network, and crash your server.
There are several types of malware attacks, including:
Malware is most often installed through phishing scams. At Elevated Technologies, we offer employee cyber security awareness training. This is to minimize malware threats.
Phishing is when malicious actors convince a victim to click on a fraudulent link that downloads malware onto their device. While some scam emails are obvious, phishing emails can look like reputable emails. Without a cyber attack prevention plan, it’s easy for someone to get tricked by a phishing text or email.
The best way to prevent phishing threats is with employee phishing testing and training.
Internet of Things Threats
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to all of the internet-connected devices you have in your network, including your mobile phone. Through smart technology, everything from refrigerators to lightbulbs can connect to the internet. Each connection opens a new gateway to hackers.
With a cyber attack prevention plan, your business can still utilize smart technology and stay protected.
Password Hack Threats
Rootkits are viruses that get installed on your device through software. When you download software from an insecure website or email, a rootkit can hide out in it until a hacker decides to activate it. Once activated, they can use the rootkit to steal data, such as credit card information, and take control of your server.
The five cyber threats listed above are only a small number of the threats out there today. As technology evolves, cyber attacks evolve, too. It’s important to stay diligent and protect your business with professional cyber attacks prevention and proactive responses.

- Network access irregularities from VPN, wireless logons, and domain controllers
- Account lockouts, password scans, and unusual login failures
- Rogue endpoints, and wireless access points
- Botnets, mail viruses, worms, DDOS, and other “zero-day” malware identified by cross-correlating DNS, DHCP, web proxy logs, and flow traffic
- Abnormalities in the web server and database access
Why Cyber Attack Prevention Plan Is Important?
Cyber threat prevention is mandatory to comply with today’s government regulations. Governments make businesses responsible for protecting data and for preventing cyber intrusion events. This is possible through laws like GDPR, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and FISMA.
Every day, more of the world’s commerce is moving online. In turn, this enables the passing of additional laws that protect personal identifiable information (PII), payment information, and other business transactional data. It will require your company to not only protect your data but also to prevent your computer systems from being the source of hacking others.
Cyber attacks have shut down small, medium, and large-sized businesses. Your reputation and customer trust rely on a strong cyber attack prevention plan. When data breaches occur, your customers can sue you for damages. Safeguarding your business also protects you from loss of revenue and trade secrets.
