There are many reasons to be concerned about cyber security, especially if your company stores sensitive information.
Hackers and other cyber threats can wreak havoc on businesses in no time.
However, with proper cyber defense technologies, business owners can rest easy knowing their information is safe.
The best way to protect your business from cyber security issues is to stay informed about trends in cyber attacks and learn how to avoid them. At The Baran Agency, we ensure all our clients have an up-to-date cyber defense plan in place. Here are some of the latest cyber threats to keep an eye on and ways to combat them.
Cloud storage breach
If you use online cloud storage, you know hackers could potentially have access to plenty of online information. And since there’s been an increase in cyber security threats relating to cloud storage, it’s good to add levels of protection. Protect yourself from a cloud storage breach by creating a backup plan and running tests to ensure your security failsafe is working properly.
Mobile cyber safety
There have been many more instances of hackers breaking into mobile phones via Bluetooth or WiFi to steal data. While this may be more localized, it’s something to remember, especially if you keep sensitive business or client information on your phone. Take the time to enable two-step verification for mobile platforms and avoid using public WiFi when possible.
While this may not be a new concern, it remains one of the top issues in cyber security. If a hacker breaches your security system and gains access to your data, there are many consequences that can potentially impact millions of people. Check your cyber defense system to learn more about safeguards that will protect your information. You’ll also want to monitor internal access to this information, as some could share information with the wrong people.
Misuse of Artificial Intelligence
While Artificial Intelligence (AI) platforms like Chatgpt and Dall E are all the rage, AI can also be used to create malware. Malware might get past cyber security systems and access your data. Check that your cyber defense has a program that anticipates these kinds of attacks and informs you of an AI data breach.
Randsomware is when someone gains control or access to your data, software or accounts and holds it for ransom. While ransomware is also not a new threat, it’s trending as there are more focused ransomware attacks. The best way to combat this is to have top-notch cyber security and keep an eye on internal access to business information. You’ll also want a backup plan, should you ever need it.
Even though there will always be cyber security issues out there, you always have the option to protect yourself from threats. That’s why it’s important to track cyber security trends and developments in cyber defense.
