In the Digital+ economy, where every interaction, transaction and connection become digitized, cyber security isn’t a luxury — it’s an imperative. HCLSoftware plays a pivotal role in this digital transformation and is leader in the realm of cyber defense. Our leadership, education, and cutting-edge software solutions empower organizations to counter the broad and growing array of malicious threats.
Cybersecurity, at its core, is about creating a digital fortress. It’s a broad field that employs myriad security measures and practices to shield and protect computer systems and networks — and the invaluable data they contain — from unauthorized access, attacks, and corruption.
Breaking down the categories of security measures
Here are the areas of your business that need to have rock-solid security measures in place:
Network Security: Protecting computer networks from intruders.
Information Security: Safeguarding information from unauthorized access.
Endpoint Security: Securing end-user devices like computers and mobile devices.
Application Security: Ensuring software and applications are free from threats.
Physical Security: Guarding physical computer systems and associated infrastructure.
Cloud Security: Protecting data stored online in cloud platforms.
Types of attacks
There are many risks and threats out there (the average cyber-attack costs a company about $4.5 million). Here are the most common types of attacks that cost companies globally each year:
Malware: Software designed to harm computer systems.
Phishing: Fraudulent attempts to obtain sensitive data through deceptive emails or websites.
Man-in-the-Middle Attacks: Unauthorized interception of communication between two systems.
Ransomware: Malicious software that encrypts a user’s data, holding it hostage until a ransom is paid.
DDoS Attacks: Overloading a system with traffic to cause it to crash.
