Don’t Let BYOD become BYOV (Bring your own viruses)

Don’t Let BYOD become BYOV (Bring your own viruses) | Information #Security #InfoSec #CyberSecurity #CyberSécurité #CyberDefence | Scoop.it
The return of IM worms, such as the recent Skype threat, underscores a risk that IT managers face in an increasingly BYO world.

 

It was an early form of consumerization with people bringing the applications they used in their personal lives into the workplace. Call it a “BYOA” approach: Bring Your Own Application. Always being ready to adapt to emerging trends, attackers started crafting malware that would exploit the weaknesses these new applications introduced into the workplace. Attackers adapted methods that worked so well with email worms like the ILOVEYOU worm of 2000 to create a new kind of worm that could spread even faster over IM networks.

Melf's curator insight, April 18, 2014 9:13 AM

Here you see some facts about how companies lack in security.

Some points like file sharing and getting worms are a really big issue. If there is no protection against that the company may be in danger. If all people have about 3 devices and they arent protected, you cant stop this.

Melf's curator insight, April 25, 2014 9:02 AM

I think that people should pay more attention to this because there are more victims every day. Not only persons but also companies could get trouble with not paying attention to your data.

Melf's curator insight, April 25, 2014 9:07 AM

Im very afraid of losing data myself. I saw a commercial once that someone took over the identity of another person. I hope that people pay more attention and try to be more safe in the future.

[Beginning Text from www.informationweek.com]

 

Cybercriminals are looking for low-hanging fruit. Their targets are companies with poor defenses, a lack of security skills, and vulnerable end users. They’re looking for unlocked doors and open windows. The path of least resistance will always be the one most beaten down by bad guys.

There are many other reasons a cybercriminal might target your company and your employees, but the message is the same: ===> No business, no individual is immune. <=== Whether you are Sony or a mom-and-pop shop, you may be a target today. How you respond to that threat could make the difference between being safe and being breached. [End Text from www.informationweek.com]

 

In clear text this means that any private computer could be a target!
