Cybersecurity

Answers to a few questions around cyberthreats and general internet risk prevention

Cybersecurity is the protection of systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks via the internet.

A cybersecurity risk assessment is an assessment of an individual’s or organisation's risk of being subject to a cyberattack, followed by a risk score. The risk assessment identifies areas of weakness and highlights these with recommended actions to improve the overall risk score.

Malware, phishing, MITM, SQL injection, password attacks, and denial of service are some of the most common types of cybersecurity threats.

Common types of malware includes viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, ransomware and keyloggers – and there are many more.

A firewall is a security system designed to prevent unauthorised access into or out of a computer network. Firewalls are often used to make sure internet users without access are not able to interface with private networks or intranets connected to the internet.

Password attacks are one of the most common forms of corporate and personal data breach. A password attack is simply when a hacker attempts to steal your password. In 2020, 81% of data breaches were due to compromised credentials.

Phishing refers to innovative scams to obtain data that can lead to corporate data breaches, credit card fraud, and identity theft. With phishing, the potential for reputational damage, legal action, and data privacy fines are high.

An HTTP status code is a server response to a browser’s request. When you visit a website, your browser sends a request to the site’s server, and the server then responds to the browser’s request with a three-digit code – the HTTP status code. These status codes are the internet equivalent of a conversation between your browser and the server. They communicate whether things between the two are healthy or compromised.

DNS hijacking happens when a third party forwards a company’s web visitors to fake websites to steal login credentials and confidential data.

DNS cache refers to saved internet queries. Poisoning thereof means rerouting these saved internet queries to malicious websites by cybercriminals.

Two factory authentication is essential to web security, because it immediately reduces the risks associated with compromised passwords. If a password is hacked, guessed, or even phished, that's no longer enough to give an intruder access. Without approval at the second factor, a password alone is useless.

Hackers require personal details, such as your full name, home address, cell phone number, e-mail address, credit card number, etc. Hackers use this data to impersonate you and commit theft, like using your credit card or taking loans in your name.

Webcams are prone to hacking, which can lead to a privacy breach with serious consequences. With Digimune’s DigiProtect product, you are protected from becoming victim to such privacy breaches.

Unfortunately, there is no way for anyone to remove information that gets posted on the dark web. With Digimune’s Monitoring products, you are able to monitor your personal information and be alerted in the event that personal information gets leaked onto the dark web. When this occurs, we recommend certain actions, such as changing your password or alerting your bank and changing your account or credit card information.

We offer comprehensive cyberprotection and remediation services to guard users against cyberbullying via our DigiCare service offering.
