Have you heard of a brute force attack? It’s how cyber criminals break into accounts protected by weak passwords.
These attacks are usually automated, making them efficient and scarily successful.
Our new video explains what can happen, and how to defend your business.
Your business can have the most sophisticated cyber security measures in place. But can still fall victim to a brute force attack if your team uses weak passwords.
A brute force attack is when cyber-criminals simply try to guess your passwords… again, and again, and again… until they force their way into your system.
They don’t stop until they win. Which is why it’s called a brute force attack. And the results can be disastrous.
A successful attack could lead to identity theft, data breaches or the use of your company emails for scams…
Strong passwords, multi factor authentication and limited log-in attempts are just some of the measures your business can put in place to combat the threat.
