Hiding in plain sight

Cyber-attacks are meticulously planned and highly sophisticated – often initiated several months before the ‘hit’ and almost always without the victim being aware of any unusual activity.
Criminals gain access, monitor you and your family and wait for the opportune moment.
The risks are embedded within normal day-to-day activities making them difficult to identify...
Connecting to an insecure shared network
Airport lounges, cafés, and hotels are high-risk locations with insecure networks.

Just because a network is password protected, does not make it secure. If your network is not secure anyone could be watching you.

A malicious actor on that same network would be able to monitor your activity and build-up a picture of your digital life, tracking your online habits.
Network Impersonation
A network you regularly connect to can be cloned by an attacker.
Your log-in credentials or personal details that you enter can be subsequently used to gain access to other accounts.

When you're on the network, the attacker can pinpoint your location.

Malicious email communications

A highly sophisticated, targeted communication designed to extract information or action from you that allows the attacker to typically action a financial fraud.
Malware can be deployed in the form of an email attachment designed to exploit your device when opened, installing key-loggers, ransomware or virus.
Attackers will alter the destination of funds to an account they own and complete the fraud before you realise.

Overseas insecure network

Globally there is huge disparity between development and network infrastructure. Unlike the UK and EU, many countries have not developed robust privacy laws, and have poor cyber hygiene.

This increases the frequency and likelihood of exposure of personal data and common vulnerabilities which, in turn, heightens the risk of your traffic being intercepted and read.
Malicious URLs
To facilitate their objectives, attackers make use of domain names both in an overt way (malicious URLs) and a covert way (domain impersonation).
It’s easy to be fooled by domains that look identical to legitimate websites of well-known brands. Famously, was subject to such an attack.
