PandaLabs reports Privacy Violations Biggest Security Threat in 2012

PandaLabs reports Privacy Violations Biggest Security Threat in 2012

According to PandaLabs, privacy violations and data theft will be the top security issues organizations need to focus on in the coming year. Cyber-espionage and social networking attacks will be the trends to watch, together with other more traditional threats.

Luis Corrons, Technical Director, PandaLabs, said, “We live in a world where all the information is in digital form, so modern-day spies no longer need to infiltrate a building to steal information. As long as they have the necessary computer skills, they can wreak havoc and access the best-kept secrets of organizations without ever leaving their living rooms.”

In the case of home users, cyber-criminals will continue to target social media sites to steal personal data. Social engineering techniques exploiting users’ weaknesses have become the leading attack method for hackers.

“Social networking sites provide a space where users feel safe as they interact with friends and family. The problem is that attackers are creating worms that take advantage of that false sense of security to spread their creations, and it is really easy for them to trick users with generic messages like ‘Look, you’re on this video’ for example. Sometimes, curiosity can be our own worst enemy,” Corrons further stated.
