One of my students asked me yesterday: “what is a cyber attack?” It was very interesting question, and remember this: “”that there is no such a thing like a stupid question.”
1Zumba friend, Mario, commented: “why didn’t she go to online search, and browse to find an answer for her question?”, to which I replied: “sometimes, it’s more convenient for a person to hear it from a human being, or a face-to-face interaction.”
Of course, Pilare, my student, knew that she could google her questions, but she had a reason for asking me that question. Don’t you think so, friends?
Anyway, we will try to briefly answer few questions about cyber attacks here, and why it is important to be aware of them.
What is a cyber attack?
A cyber-attack is deliberate exploitation of computer systems, technology-dependent enterprises and networks. Cyber-attacks use malicious code to alter computer code, logic or data, resulting in disruptive consequences that can compromise data and lead to cyber-crimes, such as information and identity theft.
How can you prevent a cyber attack?
Complete prevention of a cyber attack is impossible with current technology, but there is a lot that you can do to safeguard your network and your sensitive data. It is important not to believe that you can just purchase and implement a security software suite and then relax.
The more sophisticated cyber criminals are aware of all of the security software solutions on the market, and have devised methods to overcome the safeguards that they provide.
Strong and frequently changed passwords is a policy that you must adopt, and is one of the easiest safeguards to put in place. Encrypting your sensitive data is another no-brainer.
Beyond installing antivirus and malware protection suites as well as a good firewall program, you should ensure that regular backups are in place and that you have a data breach incident response/remediation plan in case the worst happens.
