From lawyers, architects, researchers and accountants, the technology industry supplies services to individuals in every sector around the world. If a breach is made, all associated with a technology vendor is at risk.

Denial of Service attacks, phishing attacks, pretexting attacks are three of the greatest threats targeting the technology industry. All used with the aim to gain access to sensitive information, steal credentials, research, and personal information, often with the aim to commit financial fraud.

Denial of Service

Over 90% of attacks within this field are down to DDoS attacks. Which is why adequate and swift patching is crucial to secure endpoints. It is often the simple patching elements that are forgotten and can expose an organisation in a matter of minutes.


Everyone is susceptible to a phishing attack. But phishing emails within the technology sector are well-crafted and it takes a trained eye to spot the genuine from the fake. From phishing attacks comes ransomware, which can destroy a whole business in minutes.


Pretexting is a form of social engineering is used to con the target into providing information. This is done by taking advantage of a person’s usual emotional responses, natural actions & tendencies. Many employees are not trained to look for attacks and are often unaware of their part in an attack.

Keeping the technology sector secure - infographic

Effective security always comes down to three key elements. Processes, people and technology.

Processes must run seamlessly alongside the organisation. Security experts must have the capability to detect, react and understand the context of a risk. And the technology must be superior, to keep up with cyber threats. All elements are equally as important, and you must have all three to ensure security.

Remote working has placed pressure on technical services. If attacked… how would you cope?
