  4. 4. 4 WHY CYBER SECURITY IS ESSENTIAL? Access Security Network Security Data Security Application Security Security of Autonomous Systems National Security Sectors Targeted Lack of User Awareness of Security Growth of Internet Constantly Emerging Attacks Lack of Threat Information Sharing Lack of Skilled Security Personnel
  5. 5. 5 RECENTLY EMERGING ATTACK TYPES Spear Phishing BeEF Toolkit Social Phishing CryptoLocker TimThumb Attacks SEO Poisoning
  6. 6. 6 Health Information Insurance Information Medical Devices With the digitization of health records into electronic health records (EHRs), the need to secure them is ever increasing. Unauthorized access to EHRs could lead to leakage of confidential financial details from health insurance databases. Connected medical devices are being used for transmission of malicious traffic. Unauthorized access and control could lead to breach of data and can also cause harm to patients. IMPACT OF CYBER ATTACKS ON KEY SECTORS HEALTHCARE LOW HIGH LOW HIGH LOW HIGH
  7. 7. 7 Communication Networks Computing Systems Storage Applications and Servers Disruption of communication channels is done by using advanced attacking methods such as DDoS, router level attacks, high energy radio frequency attacks and so on. Infiltration in the computing systems by using methods such as spoofing, phishing, vishing could result in access to secured computing systems and networks. Compromised computing systems and networks provide a gateway to data storage systems, which could lead to breach of confidential data. Sophisticated attacks on servers and applications by using DNS and application level attacks could lead to disruption of critical services.

  8. 8. 8 Communication Channel Automated Units Supply Chain R&D Data Attackers often try to disrupt the aerospace and defense communication channels aiming to obstruct interaction with base. In addition, focus is also on getting access to the conversations. Cyber attackers target to gain unauthorized access on the automated units and computers systems such as radars in order to disrupt and abuse the same. Cyber attacks in aerospace and defense computing systems are also focused at obtaining access to the supply chain information. Several nation and organization sponsored hacktivists aim to gain access to the aerospace and defense data in order to obtain the R&D information. Such data are immensely valuable to know for rival nations and enterprises. IMPACT OF CYBER ATTACKS ON KEY SECTORS AEROSPACE AND DEFENSE (A&D) LOW HIGH LOW HIGH LOW HIGH LOW HIGH
  9. 9. 9 Data Communication Channels User Identity User Accounts Cyber attackers often target at disrupting data integrity in the banking and finance sector. This makes it easier for them to make fraudulent transactions without getting identified. Disruption of communication channels can lead to network outage, resulting in incomplete or blocked transactions and data transfers. Identity theft is a common objective of cyber attackers in this sector. Stolen identities are frequently used to access user accounts and make fraudulent transactions. Account takeover is increasing everyday. Malware-, phishing-, and spyware-based attacks are leveraged by cyber attackers to gain access to user accounts.

  10. 10. 10 Power Grids Internet of Things Automated Control Systems R&D Data Targeted attacks on control systems of power grids can result in prolonged power outages in large areas leading to disruption of essential services such as healthcare, food, water, communication, and so on. While Internet of Things (IoT) promises to connect various physical devices, it widens the attack surface, which can be utilized by cyber attackers to infiltrate networks. With the concept of Industry 4.0 setting in to develop smart factories with automated intelligent processes, the chances of cyber attacks to disrupt the operations will evolve. Effects could be fatal in energy and manufacturing sectors. Cyber espionage is a malicious practice to obtain rich R&D data for the energy and manufacturing sectors.
