Common Questions Asked By Small Business Owners About
Cyber Security and Cyber Threat Intelligence

1. What's the difference between Cyber Security and Cyber Intelligence?

Cybersecurity and Cyber Intelligence are related but distinct fields. 

Cybersecurity involves protecting networks, devices, and data from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction. 

This often involves implementing technical controls such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and encryption, as well as policies and procedures to govern the use of these resources.

Cyber Intelligence, on the other hand, involves the collection and analysis of information from a variety of sources in order to understand and anticipate the activities of potential adversaries in cyberspace. 

This can include monitoring the activity of hacker groups, identifying vulnerabilities in software, systems, team members, and tracking the spread of malware. Cyber intelligence is used to inform the development of strategy and inform decisions related to cybersecurity.

In short, Cybersecurity focus on protecting the systems, and cyber intelligence focus on understanding the threat.

2. How important is it for Small Businesses to monitor cyber threats that may target their team members?

Monitoring cyber threats that may target your team members is extremely important. 

Cyber attacks can have significant financial, reputational, and legal consequences for businesses and organizations, and they can also put the personal information of your team members at risk. 

By proactively monitoring for cyber threats utilising tool such as the DarkXposed Alert Monitor, you can take steps to prevent or mitigate an attack, helping to protect your team members and your organization whilst reducing the risk that cyber threats play.

3. Why should a Small Business invest in Cyber Intelligence Solutions?

Small-Medium businesses must invest in cyber intelligence solutions to help protect themselves from cyber threats such as hacking, phishing, and ransomware attacks. 

These threats can have severe consequences for small businesses, including data breaches that can lead to the loss of sensitive information and financial damage.

Additionally, regulatory compliance may also require businesses to have certain cybersecurity measures in place. 

By investing in cyber intelligence solutions like DarkXposed, small-medium businesses can proactively monitor for potential threats targeting their team members and supply chain and take steps to mitigate them before they cause significant harm.

4. What impact to my Business Brand Reputation can a cyber attack have on a small business?

A cyber attack can have a significant impact on the reputation of a small-medium business. 

A data breach or other security incident can damage the trust that customers and clients have in the company, and can lead to loss of business and revenue. 

Additionally, a small business may find it harder to recover from a cyber attack than a larger, more established company, as it may lack the resources or expertise to properly address the incident. 

Negative publicity and customer churn also could be a direct impact on small business reputation as well.

Prevention is always better than cure. By implementing security measures like firewalls, antivirus software, and employee training, small businesses can reduce the risk of a cyber attack and help protect their reputation.

5. How do hackers gain access to my team member credentials, putting my business at risk?

Hackers can gain access to your credentials in a variety of ways. Some common methods include:

  1. Phishing: This is a method where hackers send you an email or message that appears to be from a legitimate source, such as a bank or company you do business with. The message will ask you to click on a link and enter your login information on a fake website that looks real.
  2. Malware: This is software that is designed to damage or disrupt your computer. Some malware is designed to steal your login information as you enter it on a website.
  3. Brute Force Attacks: This is a method where hackers use a computer program to try every possible combination of characters for a password until the correct one is found. This method can be used to gain access to accounts that have weak or easily guessable passwords.
  4. Dictionary Attack: This is a type of brute force attack where the program is trying out all words present in a dictionary.
  5. Credential Stuffing: This is when hackers take a list of previously stolen email/username and passwords and use it to try and gain access to a large number of online accounts all at once.
  6. Social Engineering: This is when hackers use social engineering tactics like pretexting, baiting, or quid pro quo to obtain sensitive information.

It is important to be aware of these methods and to take steps to protect yourself, such as by using strong, unique passwords for each of your accounts, being careful about the email, message and links you click on, and keeping your computer and software updated.
