Is Cyber Security Keeping You Up At Night?

Article by Diogo Correa

When it comes to mobility, the issue of secure wireless connectivity can keep IT staff awake at night. Businesses are relying more and more on smart devices and gadgets to save money, time and effort but unsecured smart devices can leave a business exposed and provide a backdoor to its network.

Any device that has internet connectivity, including printers, thermostats and Wi-Fi deadlocks, can be exploited if they are not properly secured.

The Internet of Things (IoT), the vast array of internetworked ‘things’, is booming. Also booming is the rate of distributed denial of service (DDOS) attacks that co-opt unprotected devices into a botnet to bring down networks. Attackers use software to scan the internet and find unprotected devices and then infect them with malicious code to form a botnet.

The more unprotected devices available, the greater the opportunity and scale of DDOS attacks. So, while your business may not experience a breach, your devices may be exploited to be used against another network. And typically, the owner of the device has no way of knowing when it has been compromised.
