Tech and Internet Industry Threat Detection and Removal

The digital economy has grown rapidly in recent years, and with that come a multitude of digital threats. From high-tech products to web development companies, there are many targets for bad actors to exploit. Even companies that deliver software services through the cloud should monitor the web for scammers trying to gain access to sensitive information or take advantage of their customers. 

The technology industry is highly competitive. Threat groups often try to steal company secrets and technical information to send back home and give their domestic companies a boost in development. Military-grade technology companies may also deal with threats directed by other nations, and data leaked to phishing attacks or executive impersonation can mean disaster. 

As your tech or web-based company gains success, it also attracts enemies looking to capitalize on your success. For example, online communication platforms are becoming more popular, and that attracts attacks that target platform users. Phishing sites posing as registration pages can get customers to divulge their personal information or download malware. In a Zoom phishing attack in 2020, cybercriminals gained entry into an Australian hedge fund’s system and spoofed the approval of $8.7 million in transfers. 

Some of the main threats to technology companies come not from technical avenues but through social media and social engineering. A company’s internal network might be fairly guarded against technological threats, but employees at the organization may be quite vulnerable to social scams.
