Internet Security Brisbane

This is the branch of computer security that is specifically for the Internet. The main purpose of internet security is to establish rules and measures that a user can use against attacks over the Internet. Internet security often involves both browser security and network security.

The Internet is a very unsecure channel for the interchange of information, which may lead to a high risk of dangers like malicious software or even worse, intrusion or fraud. That’s where Internet security comes in.

Threats

When you connect your computer to the Internet, you are exposing yourself to a number of threats. Here are just some of the threats you might experience or may already be experiencing:


Malware

Malware, short for malicious software, can often be easily contracted just by connecting to the Internet. As a user, you might be tricked or even forced into downloading software that may have malicious intent. These kinds of software come in various forms and are designed to gather sensitive information, disrupt computer operations, or even gain access to private computer systems.

  • Botnet
    A network of zombie computers that have been taken over by a robot that performs extensive malicious acts for its creator.
  • Viruses
    Programs that propagate their effects by infecting other files and structures on a computer and can only be activated through user action.
  • Worms
    Programs that can replicate themselves throughout a computer network, performing malicious tasks throughout the process.
  • Ransomware
    Prevents user from accessing the computer and demands a ransom to be paid in order for the restriction to be removed.
  • Scareware
    Scam software with malicious payloads sold to consumers through unethical marketing practices.
  • Spyware
    Programs that monitor your activity on a computer system without your consent.
  • Trojan horse
    Program that pretends to be harmless but is actually malicious.
  • Keylogger
    Program that records the keys you press on your keyboard.


Denial-of-Service Attacks

Denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) or distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack) is an attempt to keep an Internet website or service from being functional.


Phishing

Sometimes an attacker pretends to be a trustworthy entity via email or webpage to target online users. Some of the most common tactics include spoofing, which make emails appear to be from legitimate senders. Victims are then directed to fake webpages that are designed to look legitimate. Since the user thinks these websites are real, they don’t hesitate to enter sensitive information. Phishing often extracts users for sensitive information such as their username, password, credit card information, and many more.

Internet Security Brisbane for Businesses

Unfortunately, virus, hackers, and even corporate espionage have become a reality in the world of the Internet. In an effort to protect you and your computer from unwanted intruders, software vendors will occasionally release security patches and updates for antivirus software. However, having multiple security solutions in place might actually be more counterproductive as unexpected gaps may open up if the updates are not applied right away or if these solutions do not work effectively with each other.
