Our daily and digital lives have become a seamless experience. As we move from one action to another we jump across various mobile devices. While doing so we are constantly risking exposing our devices to viruses, malware, spyware and other malicious threats. What may seem like an insignificant action on your part can lead to exposing your device to threats. To stay safe in this changing landscape it is best to stay aware of what is happening in the cyber world.
A mobile device is prone to several threats some of which include malware, spyware, ransomware, drive-by-downloads, phishing, smishing, and other dangers. These can enter your device through downloaded applications, unsecured network connections and unsafe websites and emails.
Each sector has its own cybersecurity pain points, and there is, of course, much overlap as well. Phishing is especially an issue across all industry sectors, likely because it taps into our behavior, and because of that it is very successful as an attack vector.
What are the most commonly mixed up security terms?
Threat, vulnerability, and risk.
While it might be unreasonable to expect those outside the security industry to understand the differences, more often than not, many in the business use these terms incorrectly or interchangeably.
