Cybersecurity is the protection of internet-connected systems – including hardware, software, and data – from cyberattacks. In a computing context, security is comprised of cybersecurity and physical security. Both are used by enterprises to protect against unauthorized access to data centers and other computerized systems. Information security (a subset of cybersecurity) is designed to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.
Cybersecurity is essential to any company and is only increasing in necessity as the digital shift continues. Not only do we help your company prevent cyberattacks, but data breaches and identity theft that are often associated with them. Our cybersecurity services enable Risk Management and Mitigation.
Common Types of Cybersecurity Threats
- Malware: Any file or program used to harm or infiltrate a computer/device, such as viruses, trojan horses, and spyware.
- Ransomware: A type of malware that involves an attacker locking the victim’s computer system, typically through encryption, and demanding payment to decrypt and unlock it.
- Social Engineering: An attack that relies on human interaction to trick users into breaking security procedures in order to gain sensitive information that is typically protected.
- Phishing: A form of fraud where bogus emails are sent to resemble emails from reputable sources, with the intent to steal sensitive data (such as credit card or login information).
