Simply put cyber security is the protection of an organisations data, networks, hardware assets and software assets. This cyber security should prevent threat actors being able to successfully launch a cyber attack against the organisation.
A cyber attack is an attempt to steal data, damage assets or destroy a computer network. They are increasingly sophisticated, dangerous and typically include the following types;
- Extortion & Ransomware
- Corruption of Assets or Information
- Denial of Service
- Theft of money
- Disclosure of valued information
- Man in the middle attack
- Zero-day exploit
Cyber attackers more commonly known as threat actors mainly fall into four main categories;
- Criminals – typically organised crime
- State Sponsored – nation states involved in cyber warfare and espionage
- Hacktivists – individuals with a political agenda and target
- Insiders – Rouge employees or fraudsters
