The biggest cyber security threat to businesses today is malware. This is how you can protect your business from it.
Standing for ‘malicious software’, it is a broad term for software that poses a threat to your cyber security. Viruses, which you’ll have heard of, are a type of malware, but there’s also worms, Trojan horses, ransomware, spyware and more.
