Recently, there have been a rise in cyber-attacks which has been becoming the greatest concern of almost all of the influential organizations in the whole world. You might be wondering what a cyber-attack is. A cyber-attack would be an attempt in gaining control to the computer and tracking the movements of an individual or a group with not having a permission. This could be the newest form of weapon in fighting against another country. They would be choosing not to waste bullets and money since a country could be shut down in just a few minutes through aiming power grids or national banks or others and this is known as the cyber warfare.
A few years back, hackers are doing this just for fun and they used to target a single user computers, however, they were beginning to form groups and these are powerful ones in order to attack big shots. Computer system havng a major breach was reported once by an organization and that it was targeted by hackers whom they are believing to have been connected to a foreign country. These hackers were stealing their email and other crucial documents.
So, we all know that emails like Gmail was once attacked wherein the accounts of high state officials, journalists, military personnel and so many more were hacked. And the only action they chose to take was tracing the attack. So it was found that it has come from a province which also said not to point fingers with no proper proof of it.
An email of was once sent by this one particular group of hackers which they have chosen not to attack but to rather say their servers in the network was simply reachable, this email was sent to the National Health Security in UK.
Do not forget about the fact that NHS has computers out there, more than hundreds to think of. This kind of organization will really have a huge job when it comes to the IT knowing that they have wings on the different countries around the world. Thinking about it, with just a system update, it will cost millions, so what more would it cost to update all of their systems. The NHS software that they are using is mostly proprietary and this means that to be able to do their work, they have to develop their own software.
When you solve these kind of issues, it will surely take time and effort. In order to deal with maintenance regularly and also the updates happening in the company, most of the companies choose to use the CMMS system.
I hope this will help you in managing your company and to aware about what could happen in the internet.
