2018 Cybersecurity Concerns

Cyber threats are always evolving as cyber criminals become more savvy and people let their guards down by depending more and more on technology.  Here are some of the trending threats for 2018 that companies need to protect themselves from:

  • Power shell based attacks – scripts that will control the companies server.  It is easy for cyber criminals to bypass the antivirus engines with these scripts.
  • Security software –  Hackers will intercept and redirect security traffic to gain what information they want.
  • Worms – (gross!!) Cyber criminals will use worms to launch malware.  The worms spread faster and can affect a larger number of victims.

Every year there are new breaches. Companies need to make sure they have a cyber security program in place.  Included should be employee trainings, weekly updates and patches to your systems, vulnerability scans, penetration tests and much more.  Your company’s trust is based on its ability to maintain the security and privacy of your customers.  Site2 can help with you create your cyber security program.  To learn more about our employee training and security tests, contact Aimee today at 1-877-748-3896, ext. 5313.
