Hacked, what to do?

We understand the urgency and complexity of dealing with hacker attacks. Our team of cybersecurity experts is ready to support you in your time of need. We offer fast and efficient solutions for your business and are just a message or call away.

How to reach us:

Rely on maximum security through prevention

Permanent 24/7 human monitoring of networks is an important part of a comprehensive security strategy. Although technologies such as backup and endpoint security software can be helpful in detecting and blocking known threats, there are still many unknown threats that require humans to detect.

Hacked, what to do?


When a system is hacked , the attacker may attempt to run malicious programs on the system masquerading as legitimate processes in order to remain undetected. For example, by monitoring memory and CPU, our RMM system allows us to identify suspicious processes that may be run by an attacker, as these typically have higher resource requirements than legitimate processes. As part of comprehensive cyber defense, this also helps to detect anomalies in systems and respond to potential attacks.

Hacked, what to do?


Our RMM system is used to automate processes such as: B. Software updates, backups and system maintenance are used. The so-called patch management. There are several reasons for using patch management. This plays a key role in the area of ​​cyber defense for the following reason: Patches are usually provided to fix security gaps in the software. Installing patches closes known vulnerabilities before hackers can exploit them to access the system or carry out malicious activities.

24-hour support

Our RMM system includes its own software, which is installed on each system that is to be monitored. You or your staff can use this software to open a support ticket at any time. This ticket will be immediately forwarded to our 24/7 remote monitoring team. Depending on the priority you can set, we respond either immediately or within 2, 4 or 6 hours. If you take a system with you on business trips, for example, this function is available to you everywhere and worldwide. With our RMM system, with your express permission, we can also access your system remotely and support you directly if you have any problems.

In recent years, the number of hacker attacks worldwide has risen sharply, causing disruption, financial loss and data loss to individuals, businesses and governments alike.

The Rising Tide of Hacker Attacks: The Factors Behind the Rise

The prevalence of cybercrime has become a global problem, which led us to examine the factors underlying this alarming rise. We look at the reasons behind the increase in hacker attacks and highlight the evolving cyber landscape and the challenges we face in our age.

The growing digital footprint

The digital transformation of our society has led to an ever larger digital footprint. With the proliferation of internet-connected devices and growing reliance on technology, the attack surface for hackers has increased. From smartphones and laptops to smart homes and critical infrastructure, every connected device becomes a potential target. The sheer number of vulnerable entry points has given hackers more opportunities to exploit vulnerabilities.

Sophisticated cybercrime tools

The tools available to cybercriminals have increased in complexity and sophistication. Dark web marketplaces offer a wide range of hacking tools, ransomware-as-a-service platforms and exploit kits that can be easily purchased for malicious purposes. The emergence of anonymous cryptocurrencies has made it easier for hackers to fund their attacks, further incentivizing their activities. The accessibility of advanced hacking techniques has lowered the barrier to entry for aspiring cybercriminals.

Rising political cyberattacks

State-sponsored hacking has become a growing problem. Nation states are increasingly using their cyber capabilities to attack rival nations, steal intellectual property, conduct espionage and disrupt critical infrastructure. These attacks often involve advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day exploits that are extremely sophisticated and difficult to detect.

Monetization and financial gain

Financial motivation continues to be an important driver of hacker attacks. Cybercriminals are attracted to the lucrative potential of hacking activities, including data breaches, ransomware attacks and identity theft. The emergence of anonymous digital currencies like Bitcoin has made it easier for criminals to make financial gains without leaving a trace. The financial rewards coupled with the perception of low risk and high reward continue to attract individuals and organized criminal networks into cybercrime.

Inadequate cybersecurity measures

Despite the increasing threat landscape, many individuals, companies and organizations still do not have robust cybersecurity measures in place. Poor password practices, unpatched software vulnerabilities, and inadequate employee training create vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit. Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in particular often struggle to allocate sufficient cybersecurity resources, making them attractive targets for cybercriminals looking for easier entry points.

Social engineering and phishing attacks

Social engineering techniques such as Some methods, such as phishing, are still very effective for hackers. By exploiting human psychology and trust, cybercriminals trick people into revealing sensitive information or unknowingly installing malware. With the rise of social media and the wealth of personal information available online, hackers have ample resources to develop sophisticated and convincing phishing attacks.

Lack of international cooperation and legislation

Cybercrime knows no borders, but the lack of global cooperation and uniform legislation hampers efforts to effectively combat hacker attacks. Cybercriminals can operate from jurisdictions with lax regulations, making it difficult to bring them to justice. The lack of a unified international framework for preventing and prosecuting cybercrime creates a favorable environment for hackers to operate freely.


The increase in hacker attacks is due to a combination of factors, including our growing digital presence, the sophistication of cybercrime tools, the involvement of nation states, financial motivations, inadequate cybersecurity measures, social engineering techniques and a lack of international cooperation. To address this escalating threat, individuals, organizations and governments must prioritize cybersecurity, invest in advanced defenses and promote international cooperation. Only through collective efforts can we hope to mitigate risks and protect ourselves in the increasingly connected digital world.
