Cyberattacks that your company faces every day without being aware of them


Every day, your firm is subjected to cyberattacks that you are unaware of.
Cybercriminals do not labor for eight hours a day. It is not a corporation that operates from Monday to Friday, opening in the morning and closing in the afternoon; they “never sleep.” A cybercriminal can attack at any time of day, any day of the year.

According to ComputerWorld, Spain experiences 40,000 cyberattacks every day, making it the third most cyberattacked country in Europe.

Your organization’s systems are continually being attacked, even if you aren’t aware of it. The goal is to break past your cybersecurity barriers and take relevant information from your firm, then demand a ransom to retrieve it.

On a daily basis, what types of cyber-attacks does your firm face?

Phishing Attacks

Due to their high success rate, direct email attacks (phishing) remain one of the most popular.

These entail sending emails to a company’s employees on topics that they might be interested in, such as:

  • To discuss vacations, pretend to be from the human resources department.
  • Send a message to verify your email address.
  • Notifying someone in the parking lot who has left their car lights on.

Among the different types of messages meant to:

  • When the user opens the email, the virus embedded in it is automatically activated.
  • To activate the infection, the victim either downloads a file or clicks on a link.

Phishing assaults have the disadvantage of being practically undetected, especially when the employee is unaware of the attack. As a result, awareness and training will be critical in order to notice and evade these types of attacks in real time.

  • Misspelled words.
  • Multiple languages in a single message.
  • Strange individuals.
  • The originator

These are some of the considerations you can make while sending these types of communications to the trash can.

Email phishing

Anti-phishing technologies will also be necessary to eliminate this form of attack.

Attacking your backup copies

Backup copies are critical for being able to restore data quickly in the event of data loss or leakage. Nowadays, however, fraudsters strive to obtain these backup copies in order to leave the organization “with its ass in the air,” effectively compelling it to pay a ransom to recover the information.

In the event of a cyber-attack like this, ESED suggests following the 3-2-1 backup rule:

  • Maintain at least three copies of your data.
  • Keep the copies on two distinct types of media.
  • Keep a backup copy offsite.

In this way, even if your organization is the victim of a cyberattack, you will be able to recover the information without having to succumb to the blackmail of cybercriminals who cannot promise that the information will be recovered.

Direct attacks on your security breaches

Companies frequently make the error of failing to monitor their systems. Every day, new dangers known as Zero-Day cyber-attacks emerge, threats for which the company’s antivirus and cybersecurity solutions are insufficient.

Malware is mostly introduced into a system through security breaches and vulnerabilities. As a result, audits and system monitoring should be done on a regular basis. If this cannot be done on a daily basis, we suggest doing it once a week. You can detect any holes in the system that a cybercriminal could exploit in this way.

At ESED, for example, we know that the easiest method to identify a cyber-attack is to attack the system. And that is exactly what we do. We conduct controlled attacks on an IT infrastructure to identify vulnerabilities and develop customized cybersecurity solutions. Because no two businesses are alike and require different levels of cybersecurity, We’ve included some additional information about the ESED Attack at this link.


Implementing a cybersecurity strategy and IT security solutions such as firewalls, endpoints, credential managers, and others will be critical to ensuring your company’s security and dealing with everyday cyber-attacks.
