Common types of cyberattack that are suffered by individuals and businesses include:
Phishing – attacks designed to trick you into doing the wrong thing like clicking on a malicious link, revealing sensitive information, or
unwittingly transferring funds to the cybercriminals. The hackers may impersonate someone within your company or contacts.
Ransomware – hackers will force your computer systems to shut down or illegally encrypt your vital data and demand a ransom for it’s
safe release back to you.
Hacking – where cybercriminals compromise digital devices and networks through unauthorised access to an account or computer
