Comprehensive Cybersecurity for Nottingham Businesses

In 2018 hackers infiltrated British Airways and managed to obtain names, addresses, log-ins and credit card information of more than 380,000 customers. This outrageous hack on the digital infrastructure of one of the world’s largest airlines once more brought into focus the very real threat posed by cybercriminals, and the need for ironclad cybersecurity for Nottingham businesses.

The Need for Cybersecurity in Nottingham

British Airways are not the only highly visible victim of a recent attack. Tesco Bank also suffered a crippling hack. And just months ago the East Coast of the US was brought to a standstill when hackers shut down the massive Colonial Oil pipeline that provides petrol to most East Coast states.

 

But don’t let these high profile attacks fool you into thinking that only corporate giants need to worry about cybercrime.

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.
