The number of cyber-attacks has been rising steadily for several years now. These attacks target all types of organization without distinction, whether they are private companies or public institutions, whatever their size or sector of activity: VSEs/SMEs, major groups, local authorities, and healthcare organizations. 

The digital transformation of private companies and public institutions is a real accelerator for the French economy, but it also exposes it, by widening the attack surface of information systems.

The risks for each type of entity are manifold: loss of personal, banking, health or business data , financial losses, legal risks, reputational damage, etc. To combat these risks, the first step is to be aware of the value of your data and your digital activity, and to identify what is essential to your business.

The market provides a range of solutions to support businesses, ranging from simple anti-virus software to cutting-edge technologies.

Improving cyber security involves 3 stages:

  • Prepare
  • Protect
  • React

What are the different threats and how can you protect yourself?

The most common types of cyber attacks

  • Data recovery by deception. This involves pretending to be a reliable and trustworthy source in an email or SMS in order to deceive victims and obtain confidential information. It is often used to gain entry to the system and then carry out another attack such as ransomware or bank fraud. Phishing is responsible for 90% of all attacks.

    How can you protect yourself? By protecting the e-mail system, fraudulent e-mails are filtered out, thus preventing these attacks.

  • Ransomware is a form of malware which takes your data hostage. Ransomware encrypts and blocks files on the information system and demands a ransom to decrypt them. It accounts for the majority of attacks. French companies spend an average of €913,000 to recover from a ransomware attack.

    How can you protect yourself? By filtering data flows (applications and network) and monitoring workstations, ransomware and other malware can be detected and eliminated as quickly as possible.

  • The false transfer order scam (FTO) is a type of scam that uses persuasion, threats or other pressure to get the victim to make an unplanned transfer of funds. Sometimes presented as coming from an executive and having an "urgent and confidential" nature, it is also referred to as "Fake President's fraud". 

    How can you protect yourself? By taking simple organisational measures to counter scams.
