If you have ever read even a little bit of cybersecurity news, you're bound to hear terms like "virus," "malware," "spyware," and "DDoS attack" thrown around with some frequency. The terms can quickly blur together, and it can become difficult to differentiate between them. Yet businesses operating today need to be able to make distinctions between all the threat types out there, since each and every one poses a unique risk to enterprises. Unfortunately, many business IT departments are not prioritizing cybersecurity at all, let alone setting aside time to learn about the separate threat types that exist. The lack of a proactive cybersecurity strategy within many businesses is not just problematic — it also plainly does not make sense.
