Although there is security software, that the filer out those emails. There is still a possibility that phishing emails can pass through them. When that appends, some people might fall victim since they could click on dodgy links and emails.
This year has seen impressive security breaches, with Sony, Google and national governments are just among the highest profile victims of a new wave of cybercrime.
Even RSA, a stalwart of internet security, had its complicated authentication protocols concessional, which highlight how the bad elements manage to be on top of the game in the internet equivalent of the arms race. Though, they do not have the same motives, but the hackers, “hackivists” and cyber criminals are on the winning end.
Executive vice-president of EMC, Art Coviello says they are a collective reminder that traditional security is either not that effective in controlling cybercrimes. He added that they can not focus on individual attacks, but they can make systems with the resiliency in withstanding any attack.
Coviello got seen speaking at the opening of the RSA security conference in London last week, which sets the tone for three days of debate where the recurring themes to know more about the enemy, to be able to understand what they might want from their targets, and monitor networks in an effective manner.
Coviello warned the public that this is an industry that frankly confesses to being on the back foot, with the get-out clause that employees sooner than their solutions are the weakest link.
Company president Thomas Heiser selected through the bones of the “advanced persistent threat” (APT), which compromised RSA. It began with a “phishing” e-mail that carries a malicious Excel attachment that an employee opened because it seemed to come from a known source. It was just the first phase of a designed attack that RSA deems were cyber surveillance on a grand scale. It is believe that it is the work of two groups, which acts as one on behalf of a nation state that looks to steal secrets from defense contractors.
Smaller firms may take comfort from finding out about APTs employ sophisticated criminal techniques unlikely to be turned on them. However, this is not the only thing that people should worry about. Security vendors are going to refute the proposal they spread fear in selling more products, but they find it hard not to be afraid when they know what is waiting for them down the line.
