Cybersecurity protects information systems and data. Cybersecurity is the practice of safeguarding servers, computers, electronic systems, networks, mobile devices, and data from malicious electronic attacks. It’s aimed to protect assets from malicious codes and logins and is applied in a broad range of contexts, from mobile computing to businesses.

Following are some of the methods used to compromise cybersecurity.
- Malware – Malware is the most common type of cyber-attack, in which a hacker uses malicious software to disrupt a legitimate user’s computer. Malware is often spread through a legitimate-looking download or an unsolicited email attachment. They are intended to make money or can also have a political motivation. There are various types of malware, such as Trojan, virus, ransomware, spyware, botnets, and adware.
- Phishing – In phishing, a cybercriminal sends people emails that seem to be from a legitimate company to ask for sensitive information such as credit card details or personal data. It is then used to dupe them for financial gain.
- SQL Injection – In this type of cyber-attack, a cybercriminal exploits a vulnerability in data-driven applications to insert malicious code into a database using a malicious SQL statement for taking control of the database to steal data.
- Denial-of-service attack – In this type of attack, a cybercriminal prevents a computer from fulfilling legitimate requests. It overwhelms the networks and servers with traffic and renders the system unusable. It prevents an organisation from managing its vital functions.
- Man-in-the-middle attack – This type of attack involves a cybercriminal intercepting communication between two individuals for stealing data.
- Cyber Security Frameworks – Cybersecurity frameworks are a set of policies and procedures businesses can adopt to improve and upgrade its cybersecurity strategies. These frameworks are created by different cybersecurity organisations and government agencies and serve as guidelines for businesses to enhance their cybersecurity. They offer detailed directions on how to implement a five-step cybersecurity process.
Tools we do use to detect the risk:
- NESSUS : Nessus is an open source, comprehensive vulnerability scanner developed by Tenable Network Security, and has the designation of being the most popular vulnerability assessment tool. In its most recent update in March, it added cloud management and multi support through the Nessus Perimeter Service.
- NMAP: Nmap stands for “Network Mapper”; this tool is the gold standard for network scanning. Originally written by Gordon Lyon (Fyodor Vaskovich), it is a must have in any pen testers arsenal. Use it to scan networks, even if congestion or latency has been occurring on these networks.
- Aircrack-ng – Cracks WEP or WPA encryption keys with dictionary attacks
- Airdecap-ng – Decrypts captured packet files of WEP and WPA keys
- Airmon-ng – Puts your network interface card, like Alfa card, into monitoring mode
- Aireplay-ng – This is packet injector tool
- Airodump-ng – Acts as a packet sniffer on networks
- Airtun-ng – Can be used for virtual tunnel interfaces
- Airolib-ng – Acts as a library for storing captured passwords and ESSID
- Packetforge-ng – Creates forged packets, which are used for packet injection
- Airbase-ng – Used for attacking clients through various techniques.
- Airdecloak-ng – Capable of removing WEP clocking.
