What Are Cyber Attacks?
A cyber attack is a deliberate attempt to damage or disrupt a computer system to steal data or cause financial losses.
The most common attacks include:
- Malware: Malicious software, or malware, is installed on a computer without the user’s knowledge then used to damage or disrupt the system.
- Phishing: Criminals send emails or messages that appear to be from a legitimate source, such as a bank or government agency, but contain links that lead to websites that install malware on the victim’s computer.
- Denial-of-service: Hackers overload a website or server with traffic, making it inaccessible to users.
A study by the Ponemon Institute found that the average cost of a data breach is $3.8 million. This can include costs such as investigation, notification, and remediation.
In addition to these financial losses, a damaged reputation can be costly for a business, leading to customers and partners leaving the company, and could take years to recover. For small and medium businesses, this can be devastating.
