Our expert team of IT technicians at TLC Solutions sees cybercrime as one of the greatest threats facing the tech world. Cybercriminals are becoming ever smarter and more innovative in the methods they use to hack and tap data from systems. Equally, security experts never slow in their counterattack, leading to many new and more effective ways to counter cybercrimes. The cybersecurity industry is evolving new and exciting methods to cope with the hostile environment.
Recent years have witnessed massive tech developments, with more companies and firms making cybersecurity part of their strategies. Cybersecurity should be at the top of your list to protect against the changing cybercrime landscape.
Cybersecurity Enabled by AI
TLC’s Product Specialists firmly believe that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a key tool for recognizing and fighting critical cybersecurity risks. AI has shown significant prowess in combating cybercrime by spotting patterns of behavior that indicate something out of the usual is happening. AI can analyse thousands of events per second and similar techniques have been used for many years in financial services to aid in fraud detection.
Our experts can help you to deploy the latest AI enhanced protection tools within your network.
Phishing threats are currently the most common security concern in the IT industry, with many people still falling for phishing emails. Phishing emails and malicious URLs have always been common on the internet, but these days they are more personalized and targeted to individuals, especially when fraudsters utilize more complex tactics to build well-executed email campaigns.
According to Verizon’s 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, phishing efforts were implicated in 32% of data breaches in 2018. TLC Solutions think this trend will continue and phishing attacks will remain a significant risk for the future.
It’s worth noting that there were over 60,000 phishing websites in 2020, and one out of every eight employees shared information on a phishing site. As a result, companies are investing in complete security awareness programs. TLC Solutions can help your business to develop and make use of training tools and phishing-simulators to help your staff identify phishing emails and take appropriate action before putting your data at risk.
The Internet Of Things
During 2022, the internet of things (IoT) is expected to grow to 18 billion linked devices. As a result, fraudsters seeking access to digital systems now have many potential access points.
Hackers have used linked smart-devices to get access to networks and then move on to access computers or phones where sensitive data could be stored.
We are expecting to see an increase in attacks against IoT devices in 2022. The best defense against these vulnerabilities is to work with our technical experts to develop and maintain a comprehensive audit of every device connected to your network, as well as a thorough awareness of any vulnerabilities it may pose. TLC Solutions can help to ensure that only authorized devices are connected to your network, removing vulnerable devices or applying appropriate patches.
Companies need to be conscious of the risk that a cyberattack can cause to the organization. A targeted attack has the potential to cause significant disruption to your entire organization for hours or days. The increasing sophistication of attack is prompting organizations to deploy more resources to increase their employee’s awareness of cybersecurity, as well as implementing smarter preventative tools that look for anomalous behaviour.
