Have you ever thought about the time it takes to recover from a cyber attack? 

With the rise of cyber attacks in the UAE, it's essential to invest in cybersecurity to protect your business and customers.

According to recent studies, 8 out of 10 companies in the UAE have experienced email-based phishing attacks, and 66% of UAE organisations reported attempted business email compromise

The cost of a data breach can be devastating, both financially and in terms of reputation.

Investing in cybersecurity is investing in the future of your business. It's not just about protecting your assets; it's also about protecting your customers. Customers trust businesses with their sensitive information, and a data breach can lead to a loss of trust and potential legal liabilities.

What are the various types of cyberattacks happening in the UAE?

UAE organisations have been threatened by various types of cyber attacks, including:

1. Phishing Attacks: This is a type of social engineering attack in which an attacker sends fraudulent emails, text messages or other communication that appears to be from a legitimate source, tricking the recipient into providing sensitive information such as login credentials, financial details, or personal information.

2. Ransomware: A malicious software that encrypts files on a victim's computer and demands payment in exchange for the decryption key.

3. Malware: This is a type of software that is designed to harm or exploit computer systems or networks. Malware can be in the form of viruses, worms, or Trojan horses.

4. Business Email Compromise (BEC): BEC is a type of fraud in which an attacker compromises a business email account to conduct fraudulent activities, such as initiating wire transfers or making unauthorised purchases.

5. Advanced Persistent Threats (APT): APTs are sophisticated cyber attacks that are carried out over an extended period, often by state-sponsored actors. These attacks typically target high-value assets such as sensitive data or intellectual property.

6. Denial of Service (DoS) Attacks: This is a type of cyber attack in which an attacker floods a target system with traffic, causing it to become overwhelmed and unavailable to legitimate users.

It's important for organisations to be aware of these types of attacks and take appropriate measures to protect their systems and data.
