Cyber crime or Computer crime is costly
Cyber crime or computer crime is costing society and companies a lot more that initially meets the eye and more than 90 percent of the servers connected to internet has been hacked or broken into.
Cybercrime methods are diverse
Cybercriminals use often a more easier toolset than the general public realize such as:
- Infected USB-sticks dropped on a parking lot to an unsuspecting user
- USB-sticks that are used directly in the system by guest or even from home computers
- Automated and advanced systems, servers or programs
Think Cybercrime and get ahead
The ultimate goal for the cybercriminal are to penetrate the servers and prey for the data that your user produce.
The most common methods for cyber attacks are:
- Different phishing methods with fake e-mails asking for your personal credentials and credit card information
- Directing the user to different sites or server for personal credentials
- Getting the user to accept access to the organizations data in the same process
Cybercrime prevention is not an easy task. Cybercrimes should however be stopped directly at the door to the your network.
The easiest way to do just that is use a system like Syspeace, which is an IDS solution and stops the user directly at IP level.
Cyber crime prevention
Cyber crime prevention is not easy since there are many possible defenses against these type of crimes.
Usually it is not hard to find an idea to defend your network, but it is generally harder to find a really good solution for cyber crime prevention.
Cybercrime and antiviral software
Anti-virus software typically deal with different types of malicious code hidden in spam e-mail and free-running software that on it’s own are trying to infiltrate a computer in order to reproduce itself.
When a virus has compromised a computer, it can gather information, send that to an external source and continue to reproduce.
One possible goal for a virus is to collect usernames and passwords and to send them to a host on the net owned by the virus creator.
If it not is possible to infiltrate a organization with a targeted virus, the cyber criminal could test a brute-force attempt. Getting a bot-network to hack a OWA or RDP connection is a fairly common practice, so protecting the parts of your system that authenticate your users is a important task for cyber crime prevention.
How does IDS help you in your prevention methods?
Syspeace are targeted at getting your users in your network to act and be more secure users for the network.
Syspeace is targeted to protect points of authentication for your network, allowing only the right authorized people to access your system at one given time. Cyber Crime prevention is made easier for you as an administrator by using Syspeace.
Test it today in your network to get your users to be more secure against cyber crime.
