7 Myths Broken About Hackers

7 Myths Broken About Hackers

1. Hackers only attack huge companies

  • When security breaches make the news, it's usually because a major consumer service entity has been attacked. But that doesn't mean information stored in mid-size or small companies is safe.
  • As a consumer, you should always assume your data is potentially at risk, no matter the size of the database.

2. Hackers aren't organized

  • Hackers are not only organized, they're happy to trade information in an illicit network of tips and technique-sharing. It would be inadvisable to think cybercriminals take a hobbyist's approach to mining your data.
  • Plan security measures as though stealing your information was a full-time job.

3. Hackers rush to get in and out of systems

  • Hackers don't treat system breaches like bank robberies. They're not usually concerned with a ticking clock, and many take a slow and methodical approach to get the data they want.
  • If you're concerned with possible security lapses, don't expect a criminal will dip in and quickly disappear.

4. Hackers can't see you in incognito

  • While data may not be saved on your local device, it's still visible to your internet service provider (ISP). Never assume that information sent over during a "private" session is really private.
  • It should be subject to the same security measures as any other online transaction.

5. Hackers can't compromise smart phone

  • Hackers can absolutely exploit your smart phone. Some hacks require the criminal to be in physical proximity to your device, but others utilize apps to grab confidential information.
  • Make sure things downloaded to your phone come from a trusted source.

6. Hackers can only grab data if users download a malware file

  • Getting victims to open an .exe, or executable, file as an email attachment is not the only way hackers can compromise your information. Visiting web sites can allow them to surreptitiously share files that can divulge your secure data.
  • It's always best to avoid visiting web sites you're not familiar with.

7. Hackers can't intercept email

  • Hackers are more than capable of not only accessing your email account but examining messages sent out to third parties.
  • Instead of using a password that's easy to remember, choose one that's complex to provide better security.
