Protect Computers and Networks

It is the art of protecting networks, devices, and data from unauthorized access or criminal use by hackers. Hackers use several types of tactics to secure unauthorized access or criminal use of your information.


Biggest CyberSecurity Risk

Here are 4 Tactics Hackers Use

People can send emails that look like they are coming from a person you know. The goal is to get your information. It is the most common attack on computers.


Ransomware is a type of malicious software. It is designed to extort money by blocking access to files or the computer system until the ransom is paid.


Software designed to gain unauthorized access or to cause damage to a computer or computer system.

Social engineering

To get a person to reveal sensitive information, use tricks. Social engineering is combined with any of the threats listed above.


Who are They?

It may be hard to believe, but hackers look just like us. The only difference is the skills they have.

The biggest thing that separates hackers are the personalities, means, and intentions. Some questions you might ask.

White Hat Hackers

People that find out if a company or government has flaws in their system. This can be dangerous and you should not try this yourself.

Grey Hat Hackers

People who steal information. They do this to expose bad/criminal behavior.

Black Hat Hackers

People who violate computer security for their own personal profit or out of malice.

Defend Against Black-Hat Hackers
