Social engineering

Attacks by e-mail is getting increasingly more advanced

Social engineering involves different methods to manipulate people to disclose confidential information or perform actions, as oppose to other more technical hacker methods. Social engineering often occurs over email, and is difficult to protect oneself against, as attacks are getting increasingly more technically advanced. Since no spam filter can provide a complete protection, the best protection towards these attacks is user resilience, through continuous simulations and customizable education and awareness information.

Ransomware

Ransomware-attacks is the greatest security threats in our time. These attacks often start with an email, tricking users to install dangerous code (virus). The ransomware starts to spread in the network, infecting unit after unit, from computers to servers. The content of the units are encrypted and often  ransom is demanded to decrypt the units. Ransomware does not only effect production, for examples in factories, but can halt whole operations when networks and computers need to be shut down.

Phishing

Phishing-attacks often target users to leave out sensitive information, such as banking information, credit card information, business secrets, email logging information, or information for other sensitive systems. By getting hold of credentials, criminals can gain more e-mail accounts to perform attacks from.

Spear phishing

The openness of the internet allow for increasingly more advanced spear-phishing attacks to be executed. Criminals can manually or with the help of programs, easily find out, for example, who the CEO or CFO of your organization is. By fronting as a known person, different methods can be used to get a hold of sensitive information, or get a person to perform detrimental acts.

Leakage of personal data

Social engineering can be used to make users leak personal data, in breach of GDPR. This often occurs through so called spear phishing, for example it could be when a criminal poses as the CEO asking for a list of all the employees.

Leakage of business secrets

Social engineering is also used to get a hold of business secrets. This is often done through spear phishing. For example, a criminal posing as the CEO, asking the CFO for the latest yearly report. For a listed company this kind of leakage of non-public economical information can have catastrophic consequences.
