Cyber Security is the practice of defending computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and data from malicious attacks. It’s also known as information technology security or electronic information security. As businesses continue to shift to hybrid solutions, cybersecurity threats are everywhere. Security as a service (SECaaS) provider’s focus is to keep up with trends and best practices to help you stay on top of potential vulnerabilities and prevent an attack.

Cyber Security can be categorized into five distinct types:

  • Cloud Security provides security for the data stored on the cloud.
  • Network Security protects the internal network from threats.
  • Application Security protects data stored in the application software.
  • Critical Infrastructure Security is the area of concern surrounding the protection of systems, networks, and assets whose continuous operation is deemed necessary.
  • Internet of Things (IoT) Security provides security for Internet devices and the networks they’re connected to.

Along with the different category types of security, there are 7 Types of Cyber Security Threats:

 

  • Malware Is malicious software such as spyware, ransomware, viruses, and worms. Malware is activated when a user clicks on a malicious link or attachment, which leads to installing dangerous software.
  • Emotet The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) describes Emotet as “an advanced, modular banking Trojan that primarily functions as a downloader or dropper of other banking Trojans. Emotet continues to be among the most costly and destructive malware.”
  • Denial of Service (DoS) is a type of cyber-attack that floods a computer or network so it can’t respond to requests. 
  • Man in the Middle (MITM) attack occurs when hackers insert themselves into a two-party transaction which after interrupting the traffic, they can filter and steal data.
  • Phishing attacks use fake communication, such as an email, to trick the receiver into opening it and carrying out the instructions inside, such as providing a credit card number.
  • SQL Injection isa type of cyber-attack that results from inserting malicious code into a server that uses SQL. When infected, the server releases information. Submitting the malicious code can be as simple as entering it into a vulnerable website search box.
  • Password Attacks With the right password, a cyber attacker has access to a wealth of information. Social engineering is a type of password attack that Data Insider defines as “a strategy cyber attackers use that relies heavily on human interaction and often involves tricking people into breaking standard security practices.” Other types of password attacks include accessing a password database or outright guessing.
