The Profitable World of Cybercrime
The IAGON team holds pride in the level of security that we provide to our users, and as we have continually seen the growth and development that has been taking place in the world, our development team has made it a point to ensure that they are building a phenomenally safe architecture.
With the advancements in technology, we have seen immense levels of data being stored in the digital realm, which provides an easier and safer route for individuals and business alike. However, the safety and security that has been hoped for, and in many cases received, has also left room for the murky perpetrators of cyber attacks and never ending, yet random, data breaches and system hacks.
What is a systems breach/data breach?
Well, these breaches are isolated incidents that range from information stealing, to the thievery of finances and financial data, and is one of the costliest cyber crimes that has ravaged the world in which we live. In fact, it has been reported in a study that was done by the Ponemon Institute, that the global average cost of a breach of any company has reached $3.86 million, or roughly and average of $148 per stolen record.
This avenue of crime is one of the most profitable and it continues to expand in size as the criminal hackers seek out to attain people’s personal identification information in efforts to gain access to their finances, and/or utilizing the information to steal identities and even auction them off of the dark web or other criminal outlets. With this in mind, hackers also use their knowledge to access unauthorized company information and finances as well. These breaches are widely acknowledged and have become increasingly prevalent across the centralized cloud computing companies, severely harming the businesses themselves, along with the consumers and have been costly and time consuming to recuperate from.
4 Ways that hackers Access Your Data
According to a report put out by Norton, Cybercriminals typically choose one or more of four methods of data theft to access the information about any one individual and/or corporation on their trek to attain personal information that they have no business being in possession of. These, although not the only methods of sneaking in through the back door, are the most common methods of entry.
- Targeted Malware Attacks
Things including, but not limited to Spam and/or phishing e-mails
2. Exploiting System Vulnerabilities
Generally associated with out-of-date software
3. Drive-By Downloads
Unintentionally downloading malware by visiting compromised web pages
4. Weak Passwords
Weak passwords are generally easier for the hackers to guess
