What Kinds of Threats Could You Be Vulnerable To?
These days, the news regularly reports on breaches at the global enterprises and government agencies. The thing we don’t hear about much are the SMBs facing cybersecurity breaches. The truth is, the small companies just don’t make headlines. Large numbers of readers can relate to the gossip about the IRS or Equifax, but these are simply the stories that sell in the news.
SMBs like yours are actually more vulnerable than the big companies and agencies.
Here are the most common cyberthreats that small and midsized businesses face in today’s cybercrime-ridden world:
- Phishing – Cybercriminals pretend to be a trusted person or vendor to trick you into releasing your network credentials
- Social engineering – Typically, phone-based attacks that scam you into releasing company or personal data for a hacker’s gain
- Malware – Malicious software and files that can infect your system through a click, download, or simple website visit
- Ransomware – Cyberattacks that encrypt your business files until you agree to pay a high ransom
- Zero-day exploits – Malware infections that compromise your systems and networks by taking advantage of newly-identified unpatched weaknesses
- Malicious apps – Downloadable apps for your mobile devices that introduce vulnerabilities into the device
- BEC attacks – AKA “Business Email Compromise attacks,” which fraudulently impersonate you and manipulate your position of power to compel your subordinates into action
- WiFi spoofing – Public WiFi options that duplicate safe open networks in an attempt to steal company data
