There are a wide range of threats facing businesses today in the online and mobile threat environment. Cybercriminals can profit from and exploit the reputation of legitimate domains by breaking into their webservers and depositing malicious files. The economic impact of cyber-attacks is not easily measured as losses from cybercrime often go unreported or undetected by victims. Defence and remediation costs to service downtime due to attacks and reputational damage are difficult to quantify.
Information security should be on the agenda of every company – independent of size or complexity and of every individual within that company. Information is the lifeblood of every business and its theft, loss, misuse and unauthorised modifications or disclosure can have serious impact and consequences.
Major risks to business include malware and botnet attacks, phishing and social engineering, Domain Name System (dns) exploits, mobile and Voice-over-IP (voip) threats and hosting and cloud adoption. The tools used to defraud and steal information in the online and mobile environment today are increasingly sophisticated, providing criminals and fraudsters with an expanded toolkit.
