Malware and Social Engineering
As industries see an influx use of technology in day-to-day business operations, the cybersecurity landscape struggles to keep up and stay ahead of attackers.
Data breaches can happen anywhere at any time. A common misconception is that breaches can only be executed through malicious software (malware). However, attacks can exploit the human factor using deceptive communications (social engineering) to access an organization’s sensitive and costly information.
