What is Cyber Security?

Cyber security is the use of technology to hold cyber threats and cyber-attacks at bay. That includes anything from phishing, malware, and crypto jacking to data leaks; all of which can have a detrimental impact on your business. As cyber threats continue increasing by the day, cyber security is a vital use of technology to identify your individual security vulnerabilities and the highest risks to your company to mitigate them.

Why is Cyber Security architcture and Infrastructure so important?

Cyber threats can result in the unauthorised exploitation of your systems and networks leading to data breaches. When this happens, you can suffer great financial loss and reputational ruin. You could also be held personally responsible in the eyes of the law. It is crucial to be proactive and ensure your company has a strong cyber security strategy to avoid these worst-case scenarios.

What are some common cyber security issues?

Common cyber security issues include: Social engineering: This is a way that hackers trick users into giving out sensitive information, like financial details or personal information that can be exploited This cyber-attack holds a company’s sensitive data or intellectual property ransom until they pay a set amount of money. Cloud computing issues. The more devices storing information on the cloud, the higher the likelihood that data can be breached. This is a serious cyber security issue as it exposes businesses of all sizes to cyber risks. Third-party software. Small businesses don’t often have sophisticated cyber security systems and protocols making them a target for cyber attacks. These smaller businesses too can provide a gateway to attacking larger businesses affiliated with the smaller organisations. Distributed denial of service (DDoS). This floods a system with a series of functions rendering it unable to work and exposing other security vulnerabilities

Wait. What is a Hacker?

A Hacker can be anyone that compromises your business or personal assets on any digital device. This can be your own personal or business computer, smart watch, Internet of things or wearables. They can use all tools available to them to gain access and normally the easiest of ways is to prey on unsuspecting staff using email techniques.

How do they get in via email?

Even with the best domestic Anti-virus on your computer can be bypassed by malicious hackers. Human error by clicking on an email that contains a link to look friendly or real can set off Zero Day exploits on your computer. By this stage the hackers can perform their payload and take control of your system, or sit within your system/s for years without you knowing grafting information for their own benefit.

What is a Zero-Day Exploit?

A zero-day exploit is a type of cyber attack that takes advantage of a software vulnerability on the same day that the vulnerability is discovered, or "zero days" after the discovery. Due to the fact that the software vendor and users have had no time to patch or defend against the vulnerability, these attacks can be highly effective and difficult to defend against. In such attacks, an attacker can leverage the vulnerability to gain unauthorized access to a system, steal sensitive information, install malware, or carry out other malicious activities. The term "zero day" refers to the fact that there is no time for a patch or fix to be developed and deployed before the vulnerability can be exploited. It's important to note that zero-day exploits are highly valuable to cyber criminals and nation-state attackers, and as a result, they are often sold on the black market for significant amounts of money.

What is a Hacker's payload?

A payload is the component of a hacking tool that carries out the actual malicious action. In other words, it's the part of the tool that actually does the harm. A payload can be delivered to a target system as part of an exploit, which takes advantage of a vulnerability in the system to deliver the payload. There are many different types of payloads that can be delivered, depending on the goal of the attacker. Some common payloads include: Remote Access Trojans (RATs): These allow an attacker to gain remote access to a target system and control it as if they were sitting at the keyboard. Backdoors: These are hidden entry points into a system that allow an attacker to bypass normal authentication and gain unauthorized access. Rootkits: These are malicious tools that hide the presence of other malicious software on a system, making it difficult to detect and remove. Cryptojacking malware: This type of malware uses a target's resources to mine cryptocurrency for the attacker. Ransomware: This type of payload encrypts the files on a target's system and demands a ransom payment in exchange for the decryption key. In short, the payload is the part of a hacking tool that actually carries out the intended harm and achieves the attacker's goals.
