Articles about Ransomware and malware protection, data security and data leak prevention.
These days, with the rise of cyber security threats, business and individual users alike have to put more effort to tackle the data protection issue in the cloud. Ransomware hackers are ripping more and more fruit recently and Ransomware as a Service becoming an achievable “malware for hire” solution for a relatively low cost. What do we know about these high-tech criminals and the ways to stay safe from them? Is your cloud storage, Google Drive for example, safe from being infected?
Organizations are having difficult times trying to keep up with the security levels needed to eliminate or at least minimize modern cyber security problems. As technologies evolve, so do the skills of intruders. The main goal of advanced mechanisms to combat the growing numbers of attacks is to identify the weak points before the hackers do. From identity theft to credit card numbers being taken away, Big data and AI play an instrumental role in establishing new standards for cyber security. While the potential of big data is vast, it might lag behind as a standalone tool to deal with hackers due to the enormous volume of data to analyze. This is when machine learning becomes a missing piece of the puzzle that puts artificial intelligence in place to scale the use of big data by managing the insights coming from multiple sources with the help of the machines.
Computer software is often prone to attacks. This could be due to internal or external reasons. One of such attacks is caused by a security hole which is then exploited by hackers. A zеrо dау vulnerability is a hоlе in computer ѕоftwаrе thаt iѕ not fixed by the vеndоr. When hackers find this hole, they take advantage of it — thiѕ еxрlоit is саllеd a zеrо dау attack.
When you use your mobile device, you expect some level of privacy. It’s difficult to have an honest conversation or send a straightforward text message if you believe all of your intimate communications and images will be shared with strangers. The digital world we live in comes with many drawbacks in terms of electronic privacy and security.
Cyber crimes may target absolutely any person or organization that uses Internet. The only perfect solution to avoid an attack by a cyber criminal is to simply switch off your computer. However, both progressive business environments and modern lifestyles require a permanent presence on the web from organizations and individuals, and users have to increase their cyber security awareness, and this is where the Cybersecurity Landscape data will be helpful.
To give you the comprehensive picture of the cybersecurity world, we created simple but meaningful pictures followed by our security experts’ comments. We covered four of the most high-profile areas of cyber crimes: number of attacks, crime targets, spending on cybersecurity, and cyber risk management.

Ransomware is on the rise, with cases increasing by a shocking 6,000% in 2016. Not only are the number of attacks increasing, but ransomware is also becoming more sophisticated, finding new ways to infect devices and entice victims to pay up. When the virus infects a computer, it encrypts all files on it and those stored at cloud storages such as Google Drive, One Drive, Dropbox are not an exclusion. Here is how it works.
