Ransomware

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.

Malware

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.

Hackers?

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

Michael Bayer, a longtime Pentagon adviser states, “I believe we are in a declared cyberwar and we are losing that war.”

To win this war, Cybersecurity Ventures has projected 3.5 million cybersecurity specialists will be needed by 12/21. Join us.
