It probably comes as no surprise to read that cyber crime is a topic that’s not going away any time soon.

According to a 2019 cyber security report, UK businesses are seeing an average of 146,491 attempted cyber attacks every day – that works out to around 100 every minute.

But despite increased awareness about criminal activity, the figure continues to rise every year, with 2019’s stats up a whopping 179% compared to the same time in 2018.

With no organisation proving too small or too boring (or too big and high profile) for hackers to attack, this is a threat that simply can’t be ignored.

So how can you stay ahead of the cyber baddies without investing too high a proportion of your precious resources? It starts with understanding the threats. Like Sun Tzu wrote back in 512 BC in the classic book The Art of War, the starting point for winning any battle is to “know your enemy”.

So let’s take a look at hackers’ most commonly used tactics that you need to be aware of. We’re going to deal with some techy concepts, but we’ll explain them in a non-techy way.
