Know how to detect the unnoticed cyber security incidents to protect yourself from a breach

Almost everyday there’s a new headline about cyberattacks and their devastating losses that could potentially threaten the survival of your business in a snap.

  1. Traffic sent to or from unknown locations – if your company only operates in one country, but you notice traffic being sent to other countries is an indication of a malicious activity.
  2. Abnormal browsing behavior – you could notice this through repeated pop-ups, unforeseen redirects, or differences in the browser configuration that you are unaware of.
  3. Excessive consumption – if you begin to notice an unexpected increase in your server memory’s or hard drives’ performance beware because an attacker could be attempting to access them illegally.
  4. Unanticipated modifications – these could be in the form of unknown password changes, user account lockouts or unforeseen differences in group memberships.
