The 3 biggest security threats of 2016

News Summary:

News Content:

1. Data breaches

OK, this threat isn't a new one. In fact, it's been at the top of everyone's watch list since the massive Target breach at the end of 2013, which exposed information on up to 110 million customers. However, the nature of this threat is going to be shifting in 2016.

2. Ransomware

Just like data breaches, ransomware isn't a new thing. It's been a serious concern since a virus called CryptoLocker arrived at the end of 2013. However, it is still a serious threat and getting worse every year, especially since hackers can now get it for free to modify as creatively as they want.

As you probably know, ransomware encrypts your files so you can't open them, and the only way to get them back is to pay a ransom. Even the FBI is advising victims to pay if they want their files back.


3. Browser plug-ins

Britain's Ofcom recently found that adults spend an average of 20 hours a week online, and most of that time is spent in a Web browser. So it's no surprise that's where hackers are focusing their efforts. If they can find a flaw in your browser, then they just need you to visit a malicious website to slip a virus on to your system.

2015 saw hackers target a number of browser weaknesses, but by far the worst was Adobe Flash, or Adobe Animate as it's now being called.
