Along with the world, cyber attackers too are getting smarter and smarter day by day. Unlike hackers of previous era, they are now more matured and well-focused. Instead of random attacks, they are now specifically choosing their target after thorough checking and gathering information. Number of attacks has been increased dramatically in recent years. US-based Cyber security software manufacturer Trend Micro Incorporation stated these in their recent report.
Analyzing the security breeching incidents of 2015, Trend Micro published their Annual Security Report. They stated that cyber attacks are now happening in more organized and professional methods. To prevent newly introduced types of attacks, they advised to keep their Security System updated always.
Trend Micro says, after examining the attacks occurred in the first quarter of 2016, they now have to keep in mind the previous threats as well as new. No industry or any system is now 100% safe. Who thought before, they have to worry even about language in cyber threats!
The company claimed, they had prevented total 52 billion internet security threats last year. Which is 25% less than 2014. This isn’t a good news either. According to them, after 2012 cyber threats has been decreased significantly, but that’s because hackers are now not interested to attack websites or systems randomly without preparations. Rather than pointing a specific target, gathering information about what security measures they are following, breeching that and then attacking is nowadays more preferable to them. And the success rate is higher than random attacks. As well they are using, in some cases innovating new technologies by themselves to attack.
