Cyber attacks are illegal interventions or attempt to infiltrate a computer system to steal information or for other illegal purposes. The nature of attack can differ as a cyber attacker can try different approaches, and it depends on what the attacker wants to achieve. Some attackers wish to corrupt the computer system or a network by releasing malware and computer virus in the computer system. Other hackers attempt to get into the system to steal valuable information. Some of the hackers may install malware and will monitor all activities on the computer.
All these activities can cost a company a breach of its privacy and also reputation losses. Companies hire computer experts as well as cybersecurity specialists to make sure their system remains protected from any outside attempts by the cyber attacker. The security measures also involve using the latest cybersecurity software programs.
