July 11, 2017    |    Cyber Security    |    privatetunnel

Internet criminals are continually inventing new ways to threaten and damage web users, says Francis Dinha, CEO of OpenVPN, which powers the VPN service Private Tunnel, noting the public needs to be vigilant while surfing the internet. Several types of crime stand out as particularly urgent to the public.

“Knowing the threat helps you defend against it,” Dinha writes in his latest column for the Forbes Technology Council. “There are pitfalls everywhere.”

The five types of attacks Dinha wants people to be aware of are:

  •     Distributed denial of service (DDOS)
  •     Data and identity theft
  •     Man-in-the-middle attacks
  •     Ransomware and malware
  •     Unmasking of location and identity

“Please be cautious” Dinha urges. “Don’t click on strange links, and be hesitant about any links connected to sites you don’t trust 100%.”

Francis Dinha is available to talk about the three transformative technological trends our country will experience in the near future, the spike in cyber crimes and what people can do to protect themselves.
