Cybercriminals are getting smarter!

Cybercriminals are always battling with cyber security professionals to try and hack different devices. Every company is in a constant battle to protect its assets from data to cash.

So, what are some ways that cybercriminals can infiltrate business cyber security?

Internet of ThingCybercriminalss (IOT):

According to Gartner, there are going to be an estimated 8 billion IOT by the end of the year. From sensors and trackers for the supply chain to security cameras and smart screens!

IOT can be manipulated by simply forgetting to change the manufacturer’s prefilled passwords, but with millions of devices out there, that can create an easy win for cybercriminals.

Artificial Intelligence (AI):

Artificial Intelligence (AI) could become of big use to cybercriminals, being able to weaponise the replication of human intelligence processes by computer systems.

Currently, AI is being used more to fight cybercrime, however, experts are warning that it could soon become more of a reality that AI is being used negatively.

AI cybercrime situations can involve devices being altered with AI malware capable of monitoring message styles and gathering personal information so that a credible spearfishing email can be created and sent to someone known to them already.

DDoS Attacks:

A DDoS attack is a malicious attempt to change the normal traffic of a targeted server or network by shattering the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of Internet traffic.

DDoS attacks where an online service is taken offline by high levels of traffic can be motivated by revenge, politics, or just trolling. But, with online UK retail gaining between £70,000 and £200,000+ an hour, analysts are expected to see DDoS attacks used in extorsion attempts on UK retailers.
