Workstations and Computers
Employee workstations and computers are common targets for cyber threats. Malware, phishing attacks, and malicious software can compromise these assets.
Internal servers that host applications, databases, and sensitive data are prime targets for cyber-attacks. Unauthorized access to servers can lead to data breaches or disruptions in service.
Routers, switches, firewalls, and other network components are critical assets that can provide attackers with control over the internal network if compromised.
Various endpoints, including printers, scanners, and other peripherals, can be exploited to gain access to the internal network.
Authentication and Authorization Systems
Systems responsible for user authentication and access control are prime targets for attackers seeking to gain unauthorized access to compromised user accounts, including privileged accounts.
Applications used within the organization, including custom-built software and third-party applications, can have vulnerabilities that attackers exploit.
Interfaces that allow different software applications to communicate and exchange data. Exposed APIs can be vulnerable to attacks if not properly secured.
Mobile devices, tablets, and other personal devices used by employees to access the internal network can introduce security risks if not properly secured.
Internet of Things (IoT) devices connected to the internal network, such as smart appliances or industrial sensors, can be targeted by attackers.
Solutions or technologies developed or implemented by internal business units or teams within your organization that are not part of the centralized IT strategy introducing security risks and vulnerabilities.
