In 2020, cybersecurity attacks have become more sophisticated and difficult to detect as they leverage the latest technology and use sophisticated tools to breach the security of various organizations.
These attackers try to steal sensitive information of users such as personal details including their name, contact details, credit card info, or confidential data that, if compromised, would have a drastic impact on the targeted organization.
Often a simple password used by your employee, if cracked, can cause a major data breach.
Phishing, malware, ransomware, social engineering, Denial of Service (DoS), and insider threats are some of the most commonly executed cyberattacks.
To fight against these malicious attacks, it’s crucial for organizations to make cybersecurity awareness, prevention, and security best practices a part of their culture.
