There are lots of things to worry about when it comes to cyber security, but what worries you the most? Today we’ll take a closer look at some of the biggest security threats in the business world, helping you take that worry and put it to more productive use.

Healthy Fear

There’s a kind of “healthy fear” when it comes to cyber security and digital threats. After all, if you weren’t worried at all, you might get complacent and allow something pretty bad to happen, putting your data, your customers, your reputation, and your budget at risk.

Of course, that doesn’t mean you should be worried about everything or that you should be constantly stressed out. It’s better to use that worry to your advantage–staying vigilant, doing your research, and understanding what you can do to avoid certain threats. It is possible to keep your company safe, even in this complicated digital world–you just have to know how to start.

What to Look Out For

Here are some of the biggest digital threats you should be researching, preparing for, and defending against.

#1: Phishing
Phishing is a complicated threat because it rarely looks the same twice. Sometimes “phishing” can be as simple as a malicious email, and sometimes it can be as complicated as a social engineering scam designed to make you give up your information willingly. The best thing you can do is keep your staff educated on common signs of a phishing threat.

#2: Ransomware
If you get hit by ransomware, that means a hacker is holding your data for ransom–and if you don’t pay, the hacker will ruin your data beyond repair. A good way to dodge ransomware attacks is to keep good data backups at all times.

#3: Cloud security
Many companies still feel uncertain about the cloud and how it works, but the good news is that this particular problem can easily be solved with good cyber security habits and protocols.
