Protecting Your System From Cyber-Attacks
Recently, there have been a rise in cyber-attacks which has been becoming the greatest concern of almost all of the influential organizations in the whole world. You might not know what a cyber-attack is. This is an attempt in gaining control to the computer and tracking the movements of an individual or a group with not having a permission. In fighting against another country, this could be the newest form of weapon. Cyber warfare is what this is called and this means that they choose not to waste bullets and money since they could just simply shut down a country in just a few minutes through aiming power grids or national banks or others.
For the sake of having fun, hackers before use this and would choose a single user computers to attack, however, they were starting to form groups and these are powerful ones so that they would be able to attack big shots. There was an organization which reported that their computer system had a major breach and that it was targeted by hackers whom they are believing to have been connected to another country. These hackers were stealing their email and other crucial documents.
You might not have known that emails like Gmail was once attacked wherein the accounts of high state officials, journalists, military personnel and so many more were hacked. The only action done was only to be tracing the attack. So the hackers were found to be in a province which has also said that they should not be pointing fingers if they do not have a proper proof.
An email of warning to National Health Security in UK was sent by a certain group of hackers which were also sufficiently kind to choose not attack them but rather stated in the email their servers in the network was simply reachable.
Remember that the NHS has so many computers out there, millions for that matter. This kind of organization will really have a huge job when it comes to the IT knowing that they have wings on the different countries around the world. If you think about it, it would cost them millions for a system update, so it would be more when all of their systems will be updated. Proprietary is what most of the software the NHS is using and this means that they will have to develop their own software to be able to do their work.
You would have taken too much time and effort when it comes to solving problems like such. The CMMS system is what most of the companies are using in order to deal with maintenance regularly and also the updates happening in the company.
I hope this will help you in managing your company and to aware about what could happen in the internet.
