Cyber attacks have become a foremost threat to online operations across the world. Each day, hackers are coming up with new techniques and approaches to trick users into sharing critical information that allows them unauthorised access to your computer.
At Midas Solutions, we understand the importance of foolproof cybersecurity for your business. Based in Bridgend, South Wales, we are here to help you manage your data and information using the latest technology to ensure complete security for your business.
In fact, we go a step further.
Apart from managing cybersecurity issues, our IT support team provides critical advice on how to keep your computer safe from virus and malware on a daily basis. In other words, we train your employees on how to identify dubious links and emails that you must not click.
Emails Asking for Personal Information
Genuine companies never ask for personal information via an email. If unsure, check the email address of the company on search engines. You are sure to get the genuine email address from the company’s website.
In most cases, you will find that the sender’s email address is not the same as the genuine email address. The difference is so minor that it is often overlooked and you make the mistake of clicking and sharing your information.
If you receive emails from businesses or people you don’t know or have no contact with, always treat these with suspicion. Such emails are mostly from false companies masquerading as genuine businesses.
Moreover, such emails contain details of offers that are too good to be true and have a call to action. The moment you click on the link and log in as requested, your computer becomes susceptible to cyber attacks and the sender can access your computer via that link.
Attachments from Unknown Sources
This is another common trick that hackers use. They include attachments that supposedly contain the information you are looking for. Never download and open such attachments until they are actually from the company or person you contacted.
Look for typos. Several typos in an email or attachment is a sure indication that the attachment is not from a genuine source.
In case you have made a mistake and your security has been breached, our disaster recovery technicians can help retrieve your information before it’s too late. Get in touch with us today for more information.
