Why Do Hacks Happen, How Can I Guarantee My Safety from Destructive Intrusions?

Why Do Hacks Happen, How Can I Guarantee My Safety from Destructive Intrusions?

First, let me start by saying that having hard disk recovery and raid data recovery services on hand before the unforeseen disasters happen he best way to guarantee safety. You ultimately can’t prevent a skilled enough, really determined hacker from getting through any level of security they want. This should be evident by the fact that even government infrastructure has been invaded by hackers in the past, and this is the recent past I’m talking about. Cyber warfare happens all the time, even the most elite government computers and account takeover protection systems designed by the best engineers tax dollars can buy cannot actually prevent a determined enough, very skilled genius with ill intent.

This means that there really isn’t anything you can ultimately do to prevent data theft. This is a security breach, for sure, but actually not quite as destructive as actual destructive hacking, this being hacking where changes or deletions are made to the data.

So, raid data recovery and hard disk recovery don’t do anything to prevent information theft, but it does indeed take a very determined hacker to do direct information theft, destructive hacks and ransomware, the nastiest of all of these, which we will cover in a moment, are harder to prevent and have much stronger consequences in the long run.

Ransomware before we talk about normal types of hacking and motivation behind them. Ransomware is a type of technology which is either hidden in a download or somehow forced into a system, at which point, it encrypts all the files on a computer except for system files. It will also go after anything in cloud storage, able to navigate some of the more complicated portals between users and their cloud storage platforms. This will render the data impossible to read through normal means, requiring a cipher to decrypt back to a proper state. However, the villains whom encrypted your data will demand vast quantities of crypto currency for the cipher, hence the concept of ransomware as a whole.

Raid data recovery and hard disk recovery services can absolutely get this situation under control. Even newer, tougher forms of ransomware can be cracked by the right people with the right skills and technology, and raid data recovery and hard disk recovery services employee as many of these geniuses as they can find.

But, what motivates other types of hacks? Information theft is fairly obvious, people wanting to steal either personal or business information, government secrets or the like. Destructive hacks are a little different. There are many of these that are simply just kids or malcontents with nothing better to do than to lash out. However, most people with that sort of maladjustment generally don’t become educated enough in computers to do it. Others are actually foreign agents sent to sabotage. Believe it or not, as much like some sort of political thriller as it sounds, cyber warfare is a very real thing. It just doesn’t make the news unless big companies are hacked due to the fact that it doesn’t really impress the audience as much as traditional warfare or disasters. Nothing gets butts in seats quite like human suffering after all.

Others are groups of people that some may consider malcontents, others not. These people are motivated by some sort of perceived a front that you, your business or even your country may have inflicted upon people on the Internet. It is very easy to set some of these people off, especially in the current age where everyone is incredibly sensitive to everything everyone says. This isn’t to admonish groups that care about being respected better than they are, not in the least. However, the hypersensitivity of Internet people can be dangerous. Groups of these people will unite through platforms that are truly wretched hives of scum and villainy, places like Reddit, 4Chan and even real pits of Hades like the dark Web. This is how groups like anonymous, a group that is generally harmless to average companies and people, operate and coordinate, but other, nastier groups work the same exact way.

Hacks are not easy to achieve if you do have good levels of security in place. For example, firewalls, high-set Windows security settings, blocked sources on your Internet and the like can prevent your business from exposing itself to places where ransomware can get in and where exploits can be utilized to compromise you. Having a solid IT staff goes a long way in preventing hackers from getting very far as well, many of them skilled in writing proprietary software that can adapt to the times with almost no trouble.

Again, nothing is truly hacked proof unless it is cut off from the Internet and a large local network or someone could locally sneak in. Even cloud technology isn’t immune, and as said before, even governments have this happen to them. However, when destructive hacks occur, raid data recovery and hard disk recovery services can help you get back on track and they can probably help the law to track down the hackers that did it. They are also good at tracking down hackers that do data theft, meaning that these raid data recovery and hard disk recovery services can also help you in thwarting that stolen information from getting too far, at least potentially.

Remember, it’s important to have a relationship with these businesses before you need them. Every minute that your data is out of date, compromise or inaccessible in any way is a minute that you can’t perform oral business functions. The longer this goes on, the more shaken your customers confidence will be in you, and the further in debt your business will plunge. Time is, as they say, money, so you can’t spend all of your time searching for a recovery service once the disaster has struck your business.

Be it a physical disaster or a cybercrime or simply the decay of backup media, raid data recovery and hard disk recovery can help you pull through, cultivate a relationship with one of these businesses now!
