Any business that deals with online technology needs to be aware of the dangers that come with the territory. Hackers are more common nowadays than ever before, and organizations that don’t take a proactive approach to keeping threats out of their systems will have to suffer the consequences. Unfortunately, some organizations won’t be aware that they’ve been hacked until it’s far too late.
Even if your PC has been infected or breached by malware, there are some simple telltale signs that could allude to a potential security risk. Even if it’s not a hacker, it could be hinting that there’s something else that’s severely wrong with your network.
Signs to Look For
If you’re experiencing any of the following signs, there’s a chance that your computer (and even your network) has been targeted by hackers or malware:
Regardless of how vigilant you are, there are still some threats that have measures put into place that mask themselves from detection. If you want to detect these threats, you need to be running a centralized antivirus solution that can identify and eliminate advanced threats.
