More on Cybersecurity (Desktop) Perils


The Infosec website provides “predictions of the trends and events that will impact the cybersecurity landscape in 2021”. It’s good to be mindful of the ways in which desktop security (computers) can be threatened.

While this is a promotional website for Infosec, it’s helpful to know how computers can be attacked: Ransomware, Cryptocurrency, Crimeware-as-a-service, Cyberbullying, State-sponsored hacking, as well as the Internet of Things and 5G networks. This may not be an all-inclusive list, but it’s a good starting point.

Be ever mindful that e-mails are a way in which hackers can seek to introduce themselves to a given desktop. Know, and be confident of, who you are communicating with via your keyboard.
