Hackers can get into a company’s network through various means, including:
- Social Engineering: Tricking employees into revealing sensitive information, such as passwords, or convincing them to click on a malicious link.
- Exploiting vulnerabilities in software: Hackers search for and exploit vulnerabilities in software, such as outdated versions of web browsers, operating systems, or applications.
- Phishing: Sending fraudulent emails or creating fake websites to trick individuals into revealing sensitive information or downloading malware.
- Unsecured passwords: Weak or reused passwords can be easily cracked, giving hackers access to company networks and systems.
- Remote access: Hackers can gain access to company networks if remote access is not properly secured, such as through unsecured virtual private network (VPN) connections.
- Malware: Hackers can infect company systems with malware, such as viruses, Trojans, or ransomware, to gain access to sensitive information or disrupt operations.
