Exploiting human instincts seems to be the easier way for cybercriminals to achieve their goals nowadays. The constant rise of social engineering (phishing, spoofing, business email compromise… etc.) is a great proof of this fact.
Thinking “it won’t happen to us” is one of the biggest mistakes a business can make when it comes to cybersecurity. Every organization is at risk of data breach, systems hack, malware or ransomware attack, or the cybercriminal illicitly accessing their network’s processing power.
A keylogger, keystroke logger or system monitor is all about spying on a computer user. It’s generally a virus that records every keystroke made by a computer user, especially in order to gain fraudulent access to passwords and other confidential information.
While phishing attacks are rampant, short-lived, and need only a few users to take the bait for a successful campaign, there are methods for protecting yourself. Most don't require much more than simply paying attention to the details in front of you.
With email attacks (such as, spyware, malware, ransomware, adware, spoofing, phishing and spam emails) becoming increasingly more rampant, it’s now more important than ever before to ensure your employees are protected.
