Cybersecurity in Leicester for Businesses and Organisations

Every day the world becomes more interconnected and every day the threat posed by hackers and other cybercriminals grows in lock step with that increased interconnectedness. A quick internet search will turn up a multitude of recent instances when large, well-financed corporations were infiltrated by hackers, lost millions of pounds and had untold amounts of user data stolen. Don't let this happen to your company. For leading-edge cybersecurity in Leicester, contact the pros at Proximitum.

Effective Cybersecurity for Leicester Businesses Great and Small

Most businesses today rely on expensive computer systems to handle communications, inventory control, customer accounts, online sales and just about everything else. If you fail to invest in robust cybersecurity you leave these vital systems vulnerable and lay out the welcome mat for an attack that could cripple your Leicester business. 

 

The unfortunate reality is that cyberspace is overrun with nefarious players constantly probing the computer systems of businesses and organisations for weaknesses. Many of these people are extremely knowledgeable and when they find a weakness the results are typically catastrophic for both the business and their customers.

Malicious Cryptocurrency Mining

If an attacker finds a way to inject JavaScript into a website so that they can use the computing power of the website visitor’s device to mine cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, a browser-based cryptocurrency mining attack is possible. The entire user device is taken over, and their CPU is used for higher-level currency mining.

DNS Tunnelling

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a protocol that converts user-friendly URLs into machine-readable IP addresses. Cybercriminals know that DNS is widespread, trustworthy, and often undetectable. Therefore, DNS tunnelling is used as a protocol to carry malware and other data through a client-server model.

This is Not a Drill

Nearly half of all UK businesses have been hacked in the past 12 months. If you have not invested in cybersecurity and have not been hacked, congratulations, you are extremely lucky.
