Data breaches have dominated the headlines of both local and international newspapers recently. Hackers who steal the information to make some quick money usually go after a low-hanging fruit, meaning the insecure systems of an enterprise is their target. However, some hackers do spend their time in checking out the better-protected systems in a hope of getting hold to precious information or in a hope of a bigger payoff. Besides, there are hackers who target a specific individual or an organization — these adversaries are surreptitious and determined enough to slowly neutralize the defenses until they get what they are looking for.
Hacking remains one of the single biggest cause of attacks and for years, experts have warned about the risks of adopting weak credentials and the problems associated with it. When the credentials are weak and easily accessible, hackers do not take the time to get into your system and steal all your personal data. Stolen passwords played a major role in data breaches that involved hacking.
As the list of victims’ increase day by day, it is crystal clear that some of these reported breaches could have been prevented successfully if people are cyber-aware. Out of all breaches, experts believed that cyber criminals can easily hack the accounts that are of “low difficulty” and many of these attacks could have been successfully prevented if victims have adopted the cyber hygiene.
