Cybersecurity has risen ever higher up the corporate agenda for the very good reason that incidents and breaches result in significant costs—money or intellectual property stolen, valuable data compromised, business disruption, impaired brand reputation, reduced revenue and/or lowered share price. Cybersecurity incidents and breaches can seriously damage a company’s bottom line and brand image, making it imperative that security risk management is integral to corporate governance.

Cryptojacking is a form of cyber attack in which a hacker hijacks a target’s processing power to mine cryptocurrency on the hacker’s behalf. SMBs are at a major risk of cryptojacking attacks with their computers, resources and applications being exploited with the attacks.
2. MOBILE MALWARE
Mobile malware is a malicious software that targets mobile phones for gaining access to confidential user information. At times mobiles could also leak company emails and company data.

Companies are adding more and more devices to their infrastructures, thus increasing the risk of IOT Device threats.
Organizations that want to stay safe should require that all IoT devices be manageable and implement a process for updating them.Gartner predicts that by 2020, more than 25 percent of identified attacks in enterprises will involve the IoT, although IoT will account for less than 10 percent of IT security budgets.
