Namirial CyberExpert: the platform to face cyber attacks


Know your enemy: understanding cyber risks to face cyber attacks

How much do you worry about cyber security? Are you aware of how many cyber risks might affect your company? Do you know how to prevent or face cyber attacks?

These questions aren’t asked for the purpose of scaring you, of course. Instead, the point is to meditate on such delicate topics and find answers that might be extremely useful to check the actual status of IT security measures and care within your organization.

In his masterpiece The Art of War, Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu would say that is key to know your enemy to succeed in battle. This metaphor fits very well with the cyber security matter. In fact, statistics and data deduced from Trend Micro 2023 Midyear Cybersecurity Threat Report clearly show that potential cyber risks keep evolving and the potential dangerousness of cyber threats and attacks increases aiming to break through defenses and generate the most severe damage possible. In short, this is war.

Let’s take a look at the most relevant and impressing information from this report concerning the cyber security landscape within the first half of 2023:

  • more than 85 billion threats were detected;
  • 37 billion emails, 1 billion URLs and 46 billion files were labeled as malicious;
  • 14 new ransomware families were created;
  • more than 90k ransomware endpoint were detected;
  • 62% increase of attacks to Linux operating systems, more than any other else.

These stats outline a metaphorical battlefield where cyber criminals continue to master IT technologies, by now even artificial intelligence, in order to create ever more damaging attacks – just like sophisticated weapons. IBM’s Cost of a Data Breach Report 2023 highlights that this kind of attack can cause damages for around $4.5 million, which means +15% over the last three years.

Prevention for cyber attacks: is that enough?

In the actual cyber security scenario, one question comes clear: nowadays, is prevention still enough to prevent cyber attacks? The answer is uncertain. Let’s find out why.

In a way, clearly prevention is still essential to mitigate cyber risks, facing a wide range of potential threats and reducing the likelihood and negative impact of cyber attacks. Indeed, setting specific preventive measures, like softwares and systems regular updates, network security methods, strong authenticated access, data encryption and professional education and training, not only safeguards data management and digital assets, but also minimizes the consequences of security breaches in terms of finance, reputation and activity. One of the most effective preventive tools within companies is the incident response plan, a defensive security framework that empowers individuals and organizations to stay one step ahead of cyber criminals and be more resilient when cyber attacks occur.

On the other hand, though, even if all of this is correct in theory, in practice nowadays can’t be enough to guarantee victory in this war against cyber crime. Why? Because of two complementary reasons:

  1. prevention expects important costs to bear, Statista states that companies worldwide allocate at least 12% of their IT budget to cyber security;
  2. prevention is not always a flawless investment, as even the most secure defensive strategies and techniques might be bypassed by hackers with the right expertise to make ever more dangerous and malicious attacks.
