There are a number of cybersecurity incidents that are happening all across the globe but there are a number of misconceptions are still there, including the following:
Cybercriminals are outsiders: In truth, hostile insiders, acting for themselves or in collaboration with outside hackers, are frequently the source of cybersecurity breaches. Insiders can be members of well-organized groups with the support of nation-states.
Some industries are safe: Cyber enemies exploit the requirements of communication networks throughout practically every government and private-sector entity, posing a threat to every business. Ransomware attacks, for example, are affecting more sectors than ever before, including local governments and non-profits, and risks to supply chains, “.gov” websites, and key infrastructure have grown as well.
Cybercriminals don’t target small & medium-sized businesses: Because “we’re too little” or “nobody wants our data,” most Small and Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs) believe they are immune to cyberattacks and data breaches. This could not be further from the truth, and it is one of the most important cybersecurity myths to debunk right now.
While small businesses may not be specifically targeted, they are frequently the victims of spray-and-pray attacks. Attackers aren’t hunting for specific firms to target; instead, they assault everything and everything they can get their hands on, and those they can’t get into pay the consequences. Small firms sometimes lack modern security software and trained security personnel, making them a more vulnerable target for fraudsters.
