Understanding, Types of Attacks and Handling Data Security

Understanding of data security

Data security is a support procedure to protect data from unwanted actions, especially security in financial transaction services.

Here are some reasons why data security is important:

  • Prevent potential material loss
  • Reduce the risk of data misuse
  • Minimizing criminal acts from data information
  • Reduce the risk of data being misused
  • Reduce operational losses / Fraud
  • Minimizes the opportunity for criminal acts

Types of attacks that can happen from hackers

Several types of actions during data theft:

  • Interception: a party who does not have authority to access data but manages to obtain information access rights
  • Interruption: This party has taken control of the system but not completely, so the original admin can still log in
  • Fabrication : The submitting party has successfully inserted a fake object into the target system
  • Modification: The attacker damages and changes the system as a whole

How to suppress data theft:

  • Update passwords regularly
  • Use 2x Authentication on important accounts
  • Don’t just log in, make sure the website you use to log in is not a phishing website
  • Use a password with a combination of letters, symbols and numbers, don’t use passwords that are easy to guess.
  • Ensure that you use wifi in public places carefully, especially when logging in to financial transactions.
  • Install security plugins on the server to prevent brute force attacks. Brute force is an attempt to enter an account by guessing the username and password used.
  • Carry out encryption on crucial data. Encryption is a process of changing an understandable code into an incomprehensible (unreadable) code. Encryption can also be interpreted as a code or chipper.
  • Perform regular and automatic backups of applications and databases
