For companies, cyber security has therefore ended up higher and higher on the agenda, but as a private person, it is also important to be aware and protect your private property. F-Secure gives its view on the most urgent threats today and how these can be curbed. In today’s society, we are more connected than ever, both privately and at work something that gives fraudsters an ever-increasing attack surface. Human ignorance, negligence and benevolence is another factor that makes us vulnerable. For a long time, common threats have been to be attacked by malicious code, viruses, Trojans and worms of various kinds. Recently, we have seen that ransomware is becoming more common where the attacker encrypts content on a hard drive and sends ransom claims. ID hijacking is also an ongoing problem where private data is sold and exploited. What we also see an increase of just 2022 is phishing and DDoS attacks, says Mikael Herrala, Sales Manager at F-Secure.MSB warnsDuring the spring, the MSB (Swedish Agency for Civil Protection and Emergency Planning) went out and warned about phishing and DDoS attacks and at the same time urged companies and organizations in Sweden to report these types of incidents. Phishing, or phishing, can take place in many different ways today. The most common approach is for fraudsters to contact people via e-mail, social media or text messages, but it is becoming more common with phone calls as well. DDoS attacks where an IT system becomes overloaded to the extent that it crashes often affect companies, but we see that in recent times it also occurs for private individuals, for example in the online poker industry, says Mikael Herrala.This is how you can protect yourself against digital crimeMikael Herrala lists four points to be aware of / keep track of.1.
