We’re now halfway through 2023 and as technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, so do cybersecurity threats. Existing cyber threats are becoming more sophisticated and there are also new threats coming to light.
We know how important it is for businesses and individuals to be educated and stay vigilant when it comes to cybersecurity. As such, we’ve put together this blog post on some of the biggest cybersecurity threats to watch out for in 2023.
Ransomware is a type of malicious software which encrypts your files, blocking your access to your device and data. Criminals then demand a ransom payment to restore your access. Worryingly, ransomware attacks are becoming more frequent and sophisticated.
Ransomware attacks can be devastating for businesses, leading to data loss and financial loss. One of the most effective things you can do to protect your business, as well as having anti-virus, is to ensure that you have a strong backup system in place and perform regular backups.
Mobile devices are becoming common targets for cybercriminals and with more businesses allowing their employees to use mobile devices at work, the threat posed by mobile malware is growing.
Mobile malware can be used to steal data and take control of devices. It is important that employees who use mobile devices at work are trained and educated on the signs of a cyber attack and what to look out for.
As a smaller business focusing on making a mark in the industry, it can be easy to let your software and applications become outdated. These outdated versions become more vulnerable to cyber attacks, posing threat to your business.
