What does a brute force attack mean for your business

Brute force attacks are a method cyber criminals use to gain access to user accounts with weak passwords.

They simply use automated lists of common passwords or combinations of characters which make them very efficient & simple for the  cyber criminal to conduct.

This video explains how to defend your business and how devastating falling victim can be. 

weak user passwords = weak cyber security = easy brute force attack victim

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.
