  • attacks are launched by a phishing email

  • of all cyberattacks target small businesses

Cybersecurity is a major issue for businesses, whether large or small. Computer attacks are becoming more and more frequent every year, and the consequences can be disastrous for a business. Statistics show that cyberattacks are becoming more and more common every year. According to a study by Sales Hacking, it takes an average of six months to detect a data breach, 43% of all cyberattacks target small businesses, and 91% of attacks are launched by a phishing email. Additionally, a business falls victim to a ransomware attack every 14 seconds. These alarming figures demonstrate the scale of the problem and highlight the importance of businesses taking preventative measures when it comes to cybersecurity.

THE MAIN CYBER RISKS: PHISHING, RANSOMWARE, DDoS, MALWARE AND NEW VIRUSES

In today's cyber landscape, some threats are more common than others. Here are the Top 10 most common cyberattacks in 2023 against businesses:

  • Phishing is an attack where cybercriminals attempt to deceive users by posing as legitimate entities, often through fraudulent emails or websites, in order to steal personal information, such as login credentials. or financial data.

  • Ransomware is a form of malware that encrypts a user's files and then demands a ransom in exchange for the decryption key. Victims are thus forced to pay to recover their data.

  • DDoS attacks aim to overwhelm a system or service by bombarding it with malicious traffic from multiple sources, thereby making the service inaccessible to legitimate users.

  • The man-in-the-middle attack occurs when cybercriminals intercept and modify communications between two parties, often to steal sensitive information or to inject malware.

  • The Presidential Scam aims to deceive employees by posing as a high-ranking authority or company executive to trick them into disclosing confidential information or carrying out financial transactions.

  • Malware (or malicious software) is designed to damage, steal data or take control of a system. Malware infection can occur through downloads, email attachments, or compromised websites.

  • Stealth Download Attack occurs when malicious files are downloaded to a system without the user's knowledge, often by exploiting security vulnerabilities.

  • Password attacks aim to guess or steal users' passwords to access their accounts or sensitive systems.

  • The aim of the Eavesdropping Attack is to spy, collect sensitive data or collect confidential information by intercepting communications without authorization.

  • SQL injection attacks aim to exploit security vulnerabilities in databases by injecting malicious SQL code, which can allow attackers to access, modify or delete data in the database.

The consequences of a cyberattack can be disastrous, ranging from the loss of confidential data to the shutdown of your business. To protect your business from cyberattacks and intrusion risks, it is therefore essential to strengthen the security of your information system.
