Understanding Network Threats & Security | Arbor Networks
http://www.arbornetworks.com/network-visibility?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=description&utm_term=pixability&utm_campaign=understandingthreats Network attacks can look very different and range in severity. Now more than ever, it is important for individuals, companies and institutions to understand what’s behind network and cyber-attacks. Arbor Networks’ Dan Holden explores the different kinds of threats that exist and why knowledge is just as important as the threat protection software and services used today. Holden describes “typical” cyber-crime efforts as going after personal information, typically for things like identity theft. This is the type of security breach that we are used to hearing about. However, on the other side of the spectrum are complex attacks conducted to aid in cyber espionage and tap into national, state, or corporate security information. We have also seen an increase in location based, geopolitical network breaches or attacks, which can be triggered due to local issues or controversies. Understanding what puts your information at risk and why you may be targeted for a cyber-attack is more important than ever.
