Cyber attacks affect individuals and businesses daily and are becoming increasingly common. Two common types of cyber attacks include phishing and password attacks.
Phishing involves sending fraudulent emails to unsuspecting users. Similar attacks include smishing scams using text messages and quishing using QR codes. Phishing communications appear legitimate but can cause damage to files and devices.
Password attacks happen when hackers try to steal passwords. It’s important to use strong passwords, update them regularly and use two-factor authentication.
If you suspect you are a victim of a cyber attack, contact a cybersecurity company such as Alias for immediate incident response.
