Cybersecurity Threats

Phishing is an extremely common cyber threat that many people will deal with. This is a malicious attempt at disgusting an email or website as something else in order to steal password and security information.

Ransomware is a malicious cyberthreat that has been dramatically increasing over the past several years. During a typical ransomware attack, the malicious party will demand significant payment for the return of a company’s data, and even then, it is not guaranteed if they will return the data.

Data Breaches expose sensitive data or protected information. This security violation is commonly used to reveal passwords that allow for the malicious attacker to access company’s confidential data.
