virusmalwareIs your IT system secured?
The Internet has become more and more part of our everyday lives. It has enhanced the way we live and work and made it much easier for people to get information, share and communicate. However with these new ways of technology comes security threats, such as viruses, worms, spams, malware, spyware and phishing. These are all types of malicious programs or also known as malware.
These malicious programs are man-made and used to infect your computer and system in various ways. Some are transmitted through portable devices or over network connections such as the Internet and are damaging programs, which will attempt to install themselves on your PC. They can have several purposes such as sending emails to other people to pass the infections on, to deleting files in order to stop programs working or documents from opening. Some can allow complete remote control of your PC.
Others collect information about the users without their knowledge or permission such as personal information, logins, PINs and passwords. This could be achieved through pop-up adverts, false websites etc. They will then forward the information to the interested third party like cybercriminals and hackers.
Therefore, it is crucial to know how to protect your business against it and to understand new types of online attacks. Just to give you an idea, Symantec, an American tech company published a report in 2014, which revealed that more than 317 million new pieces of malware. That means almost 1 million new threats were released each day.
