Simply put, malware (malicious + software) is any piece of software designed with the intent to damage, disrupt or gain unauthorised access to your device and inflict harm to data and/or people in multiple ways.
It is one of the biggest threats on the internet and comes in a bewildering variety of forms, each with its own method of delivery (attack vector). So, it’s crucial that users know how to recognise the different types of malware and how it finds its way into your network in order to help protect yourself, and your business systems, from being compromised.
