Cyber attacks are becoming more and more common, and there are a number of different types of cyber attacks that could be detrimental to the productivity and continuity of your business.

Malware: Malware can hijack computer functions to steal, encrypt or alter your date. It can also monitor the activity on your computer.

Phishing: Phishing is when an attacker commits fraud in order to access your personal data. They will make themselves seem familiar to the user, before tricking them in to providing them with sensitive information, such as passwords or bank details.
Brute force: Brute force is a trial and error attack, where attackers try to obtain encrypted data through automated software guesswork.
DoS/DDoS: Cybercriminals use DoS/DDoS attacks to get money from companies who rely on their web services being available.
Spyware: Spyware is a type of Malware that is hard to detect. It collects information about your browsing history, surfing habits, passwords and credit card details.
SQL injection: SQL injection is a common cyber attack in which an attacker can execute malicious SQL code for database manipulation. This gives the attacker access to vital company information such as customer details and intellectual properties.
