Cybersecurity is a critical issue for businesses today, and it’s essential to stay informed about the latest threats. With so many threats to consider, it can be challenging to determine which ones pose the greatest risk. Here, we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 security threats for 2022 to help organisations and their IT managers make informed decisions about their cybersecurity measures. 

10 security threats to learn from 

  1. Ransomware: Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts a business’s data, making it inaccessible. Hackers then demand payment in exchange for the decryption key. 
  2. Phishing attacks: Phishing attacks are a common form of social engineering that trick people into revealing sensitive information, such as login credentials. 
  3. Malware: Malware is malicious software that is designed to harm or exploit an organisation’s systems or steal sensitive data. 
  4. Cloud security: Cloud computing is becoming increasingly popular, but it also introduces new security risks, such as unauthorised access to data stored in the cloud. 
  5. IoT device security: The increasing number of connected devices creates a growing attack surface, making it easier for hackers to target these devices and gain access to an organisation’s network. 
  6. Supply chain attacks: Supply chain attacks target businesses by compromising their suppliers or vendors, potentially exposing sensitive data, or disrupting operations. 
  7. Advanced persistent threats (APTs): APTs are highly sophisticated attacks that are designed to infiltrate an organisation’s network undetected and steal sensitive data. 
  8. Social engineering: Social engineering attacks manipulate people into performing actions or divulging sensitive information, such as clicking on a malicious link or revealing login credentials. 
  9. Insider threats: Insider threats can come from employees, ex-employees, contractors, or other insiders who have access to sensitive data and systems. 
  10. Software vulnerabilities: Software vulnerabilities can provide attackers with an entry point into an organisation’s systems, allowing them to steal sensitive data or compromise the network. 

It’s important to stay vigilant and proactive to defend yourself against these security threats in 2023. By investing in a comprehensive security solution and educating employees on safe computing practices, you can help reduce the risk of a cyber-attack.
