If you own a large company, you need to ensure that you keep the data and other information on your network away from people that do not have authorized access to this information. There are people that will break into networks to steal important information and data from you, however. Once this happens, your entire network may go down completely. Fortunately, you can prevent this problem by using cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is implementing software and processes that will keep your network safe from hackers. Below is more information about this so you can rest easy knowing your network is safe.

Network Threats You May Have

There are many threats you can have to your network, which include a hacker installing spyware, exploit kits, phishing, and ransomware on your network. An experienced hacker is very knowledgeable in getting through network security and implementing a cyber attack on your network.

There are many threats you should be aware of. DNS (Domain Name System) tunneling is one of these threats. Once DNS tunneling is performed, cybercriminals can easily install spyware, malware, and other threats onto your system. The cybercriminal will also have the ability to steal the information on your network. This is because the cybercriminal sets up what is known as communication channels that can easily get past most firewalls installed on networks.  

Another attack is known as malicious crypto mining. With this attack, the cybercriminal injects JavaScript onto your website. This then allows the cybercriminal to mine cryptocurrency, which is generally known as bitcoin. 

Ransomware is another threat you have. With this, a cybercriminal installs software on your network and gains access to the information on your network. This is the most common threat that faces companies currently. 

How to Gain Cyber Security

You can perform cybersecurity on your own, but if you do not have experience with this you should hire a cyber IT security company to do this for you. The cybersecurity company will test your network to determine where cybercriminals can break through. They will then devise a plan on what they can do to protect your network.

One thing the cybersecurity company will do is to install much stronger firewalls on your network. Once the firewall is installed, the cybersecurity company will do tests to ensure there are no open areas a cybercriminal could break through. 

The cybersecurity IT company will also install software programs to protect your network, such as anti-virus, anti-malware, and anti-spyware applications to stop attacks.

A cybersecurity company can go over the information with you in much more details, as well as tell you of other ways they can protect your network.
