Cybersecurity - Hacking
Preventing hacking is the fundamental principle underlying cyber security initiatives. However, this is essential to consider, especially when devices are connected to the internet. Hackers exploit vulnerabilities, assess weaknesses in Wi-Fi or programs to install a virus, and then invade the person’s privacy through hacking into their internet-connected device. Encryption keys that utilize WEP can be hacked into, especially those that use the SNAP header, based on the amount of traffic and the number of times the procedure is implemented. Prevention is the first step, although the cycle is continuous. Thankfully, there are precautions to prevent hacking, including the use of strong passwords, learning safe cybersecurity practices, using secure networks whenever possible, and installing cybersecurity tools to protect WI-FI connections. Companies should consider implementing multi-factor authentication for their employees and customers, and consumers can learn more about basic cybersecurity principles and practices to assist in protecting themselves from getting hacked.
