What To Know About Cyber-Attacks
There have been a rise in cyber-attacks which has been becoming the greatest concern of almost all of the influential organizations around the world recently. So you must be wondering what a cyber-attack is. An attempt in gaining control to the computer and tracking the movements of an individual or a group with not having a permission is what a cyber-attack attack means. This could be the newest form of weapon in fighting against another country. They would be choosing not to waste bullets and money since a country could be shut down in just a few minutes through aiming power grids or national banks or others and this is known as the cyber warfare.
Hackers a few years back are doing this just for fun and they used to target a single user computers, however, they were beginning to form groups and these are powerful ones in order to attack big shots. Computer system havng a major breach was reported once by an organization and that it was targeted by hackers whom they are believing to have been connected to a foreign country. These hackers were aiming to steal their documents which are very important and also their email.
You might not have known that emails like Gmail was once attacked wherein the accounts of high state officials, journalists, military personnel and so many more were hacked. And the only action they chose to take was tracing the attack. So the hackers were found to be in a province which has also said that they should not be pointing fingers if they do not have a proper proof.
There is this one certain group of hackers who have sent an email of warning to National Health Security in UK to which that they were being sufficiently kind not to attack them, however, they were stating in the email that servers in the network was simply reachable.
Do not forget about the fact that NHS has computers out there, more than hundreds to think of. When it comes to the IT, with wings on the different countries around the world, this kind of organization will really have a huge job. If you think about it, it would cost them millions for a system update, so it would be more when all of their systems will be updated. The software that most of the NHS is using is proprietary which means that they will have to develop their own software to be able to do their work.
So solving a problem like such will really take too much effort and time. In order to deal with maintenance regularly and also the updates happening in the company, most of the companies choose to use the CMMS system.
You can do a research about what is happening on the internet but I hope this helps as well.
