Suggested March 2024 4 Most Common Cyber Attacks Used Against Older People In 2023

Cyber criminals preying on the elderly is a big problem throughout the world. While all age groups are equally vulnerable to two-bit frauds, the elderly may be prone just a bit more. Many retirees, widowers and lonely grandparents may have their entire nest egg easily accessible, and that makes them targets.

There are other factors as well. Many elderly arrived late on the technology scene and would have developed easy habits such as an unwillingness to use complex passwords or learn about new security hacks. As a generation, they generally are more polite to strangers, a trait potential fraudsters often use to reel in their victims. Having said this, with a little bit of awareness, the elderly can avoid becoming victims to the most common forms of cyber attacks.

1. Phishing Attacks

According to 2023 peer-reviewed research in Colorado, 102 older adults and 91 younger people were subjected to psychological tests on phishing detection. Their ability to suspect replicas of popular eCommerce websites was measured. All the individuals were regular Internet users, had no brain injuries and gave informed consent for participation in the study.

The older adults reported twice the likelihood of becoming a victim of phishing attacks compared to younger adults (53.47% vs. 26.37%). They also confessed to letting their guard down more often at home as compared to laboratory settings (47.47% vs. 18.68%). Although it is just one research on phishing, the implications are quite serious.

Tips: irrespective of age, one must take basic security precautions to protect against phishing. These include updating your OS and applications and changing the DNS server that can prevent URL misdirection.

A few more tips include:

“If too many windows are opening without your permission on a browser, use Alt + F4 to shut everything down.”

“It is always a good habit to clear the browser cache frequently. Use Ctrl + H on Google Chrome.”

“Set up strong passwords. If you cannot remember them, save them using tools like LastPass.”

2. Behavioral attacks

For obvious reasons, the elderly are frequently a target of certain kinds of behavioral attacks. These include senior dating and romance scams, anti-aging and other prescription pills, charity and investment swindles, and fake help requests by “family members.” While anyone can fall prey to a well-oiled con job, what makes some of the elderly more vulnerable is their loneliness.

Tips: One of the best ways to deal with behavioral scams is to change your privacy options in Windows “Settings.” It is also recommended to turn Windows Defender Security Center settings on to prevent any misdirection to online scam websites. Also, never open en email attachment from people you do not trust. Immediately hang up on any phone calls or chat messages that may appear suspicious.

3. Consumer Fraud

Fake e-Commerce websites are on the prowl for vulnerable elderly who may not have sufficient knowledge about their genuineness. When they order online, there is a chance that the product may not be delivered at all, or that it might come with hidden charges. It is important to check if the website in question is genuine. There are agencies such as Better Business Bureau which list all genuine online businesses.

Tips: supposing you buy frequently from chúng tôi avoid dealing with companies having questionable server IP addresses and email aliases such as:

4. Identity Theft

Most identity thefts begin at the weakest link: a poor password or PIN. The other day I had to assist an older uncle in his mid 60s after he got locked out of his own Facebook account. He used a simple numeric password that, according to Kaspersky password check tool, wouldn’t have taken longer than three minutes to crack. Later he told me he uses the same eight-digit numeric password for Gmail, bank accounts and the government tax portal!

Tips: irrespective of age, it should be standard practice to avoid sharing personal details including credit card numbers, one time passwords, date of birth and other inputs with anyone let alone random strangers. Always suspect people claiming to be from a government agency, tax audit firm and other scaremongers.


Despite several notable exceptions, many senior citizens are not nearly as tech-savvy as the millennial generation. However, the tips above will serve as a strong deterrent against most unpredictable attacks.

What is your take on this topic? Do you disagree with the assumption that the elderly may be more vulnerable to cyber-criminals? If yes, do let us know.

Online Industries Most Targeted By Cyber Attacks

The rate of industrial cyber-attacks has grown exponentially, with data breaches in the first half of 2023 alone exposing 4.1 billion records. Cybercrime has reached such magnitude that if the financial losses were converted into GDP, it would constitute the world’s third-largest economy. Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that the global loss due to online attacks reaches a staggering

1.  Gaming

Statista forecasts that the global video game market will be worth more than $138 billion by 2023, which led to this online industry becoming the most targeted by cyber attacks. In addition to the market size, the gaming industry is an attractive target due to its unregulated market of in-game purchases and rare items. Not forgetting that the speed at which technology progresses leaves the sector susceptible to identity and access management challenges, policy violations, misconfigurations, and threats. Furthermore, attackers have identified gamers as a niche demographic with disposable income and a penchant for in-game purchases. According to cybersecurity leaders Imperva, the relatively security-immature gaming industry accounted for 35.92% of the total DDoS attacks in 2023. Research has found that gaming represents such a large percentage of these particular attacks due to players’ willingness to pursue drastic measures to win. A 2023 lawsuit brought forward against a purported DDoS-for-Hire service by game developer Ubisoft highlighted an instance where players could use DDoS to win multiplayer online games. This tactic’s reasoning lies in the fact that once a player loses connectivity, the player that remains online is victorious. DDoS only accounts for a portion of attacks with additional cyber threats such as phishing, malware, and social engineering used to steal gaming accounts and passwords. From here, hackers can sell gaming accounts, game-related artifacts, or trick gamers into launching third-party software entirely unrelated to the game.  

2.  Online Casinos 

Compared with gaming, online casinos have faced significant industrial cyber attacks over the years. Still, they have come out on top due to the industry’s maturity and acknowledging the dramatic repercussions a successful attack could pose. The industry has taken heed of any potential cyber risks and acted accordingly to safeguard its platforms. The introduction of cryptocurrency as a form of payment further protects players’ identities and personal information as blockchains are virtually impossible to hack. Successful cyberattacks are far and few between, although SBTech, an iGaming, reported a ransomware attack in March 2023. The company shut down its global data centers for more than 72 hours, leaving its customers without consumer-facing websites. The company successfully prevented any data breaches despite the attack with zero data compromised. Fortunately, online casinos employ stringent safety protocols and incorporate sophisticated bank-grade encryption to keep players’ personal and financial details secure. DDoS attacks are frequent, with the online casino industry experiencing 32.25% of the global DDoS attacks in 2023, but most online casinos have reacted to this threat by implementing Cloudflare DDos Protection.

3.  Computers and internet

Cloud services have come under severe threat, with research from DivvyCloud indicating that data breaches that resulted from cloud misconfiguration costing businesses nearly $3.18 trillion in 2023. A Trustwave Global Security Report released in 2023 detailed that the volume of attacks on cloud services more than doubled (a 250% spike) from mid-2024 to mid-2024. Before 2023 the main reasons for server hacks were to exfiltrate sensitive corporate information, set up DDoS infrastructure, or other cybercrime variances. Investigations detailed in Aqua’s 2023 Cloud-Native Threat Report have revealed that the vast majority of recent attacks on cloud servers aim to mine crypto by taking control of the servers by planting malware that hackers upload to public registries. Taking control of cloud services has become so competitive that malware now incorporates complex techniques that effectively disable rival malware on the same hacked system.  

4.  E-commerce

According to Deloitte’s 2023 annual forecast, E-commerce holiday sales would reach $196 billion in the festive season, resulting in a 35% increase year on year. The incredible revenue naturally attracts hackers that have pivoted from outdated POS (Point of Sale) malware to web-skimming. IBM’s X-Force Exchange, a threat intelligence platform, indicates that e-commerce threats have increased fourfold since 2023. The vast majority of the online threats now originate from seven to 12 groups collectively referred to as Magecart, with the term synonymous with web-skimming. Web-skimming utilizes malicious JavaScript code into e-commerce checkout pages, sending payment card data directly to the attackers. According to RiskIQ, a Leader in Attack Surface Management, an average of 425 Magecart incidents occurred every month in 2023.  

5.  Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Cryptocurrency exchanges and startups are high-value targets for industrial cyber attacks. Successful breaches can result in massive financial losses from cryptocurrency and user database theft. Hacker access to user databases is exceptionally problematic for investors as exchanges store large user databases containing sensitive personal information, including user-submitted documents used to verify their identity with crypto exchanges. These documents often take the form of government-issued ID, selfie, or proof of address, which could put investors at risk of targeted attacks and identity theft. Cryptocurrency exchanges suffered massive losses in the last two years, with $170 million stolen from Italian-based Nano in 2023. The same year, a Korean crypto exchange Coinrail reported losses of over $40M in tokens following a hack. The popular crypto exchange, Binance, reported a loss of more than $40 million in bitcoin after a well-orchestrated hack in 2023. In 2023 Harvest Finance lost $24 million after a hack, while a cyberattacker stole roughly $150 million in crypto stored in hot wallets from KuCoin.   Final Word Cybersecurity issues are becoming an everyday concern for online industries. Recent studies and cybersecurity reports detail an exponential increase in data breaches and online attacks from various sources, with these attacks accounting for billions in global financial loss. Additionally, research suggests that a vast majority of online industries are poorly-equipped to handle the constant onslaught of attacks in an ever-changing technological arena, with many companies maintaining poor cybersecurity practices and unprotected data at severe risk of breaches. As mentioned, numerous online industries have suffered colossal losses due to ineffectual security precautions, with company cultures forced to incorporate prevention and security best practices for fear of further repercussions. However, the fight is far from over as hackers continually change their strategies and target industries ill-equipped to defend their assets.

The 3 Most Common Mistakes In Digital #Marketing By Startups

You have reached the point where another cup of coffee won’t make a difference. In fact, a whole pot wouldn’t give you the energy you need to complete all of your digital marketing tasks.

This is a problem for many startups.

Here are three of the most common mistakes in digital marketing by startups, all of them are correctable and fixing any or all of them can have a huge impact on your digital marketing return on investment.

Mistake 1: Not Focusing Your Digital Marketing On Business Objectives

If your startup is posting on Facebook, you need to defend why your startup chooses to spend their time and energy on that digital marketing activity from a business perspective. It may be great for your ego that you got 10 shares on a post, but how do those shares actually lead to profit?

[pullquote]Don’t forget that just because you are an amazing tech startup that you are also still a business. [/pullquote]

Just like any other business, your startup needs to achieve revenue. The way to make achieve this revenue with digital marketing is to have all of your activities either achieve or move users towards achieving concrete business objectives.

The best way to correct the mistake of digital marketing without business objectives is to create a marketing funnel. Since not all of your digital marketing results in an immediate sale, this marketing funnel will have a series of steps, each one of which is a small business objectives (getting an email address, users filling out forms, etc.) which lead to your ultimate business objective which is usually a sale.

Once you have mapped out your marketing funnel, you have shifted your mindset towards viewing your digital marketing through a business lens. Use this lens to see what digital marketing activities actually move the needle. If the digital marketing activity does not move users towards your business objective, you can either stop spending your time and money on that particular activity or reconfigure your strategy and test to see if it is possible to achieve business objectives with it.

Mistake 2: Trying To Market On Too Many Channels

Instead of trying to utilize a selection of digital marketing channels effectively, startups often attempt to have a presence on every channel and end up executing them all poorly.

This is how it happens:

You sign up your startup for accounts in all of the social networks and frantically drop in, make a lot of noise, and do not interact according to the norms and the standards of that particular channel. Instead of adding value to the conversation, your startup looks like a jerk and turns potential customers off.

The mistake is that your presence on these networks is sporadic and doesn’t allow you to understand the community and authentically connect with the users. You shouldn’t necessarily be sending the same message on Twitter as you would on email or Facebook or Instagram. However, you do not have the time nor the staff to interact on all of the networks in a way that engages visitors and moves your startup towards business objectives.

The best way to correct this mistake is to begin your digital marketing with one or two channels and spend your time and effort becoming industry leaders on that channel. Once you have mastered a select group of channels, you may want to expand, or you may find that you can sustain your startup’s growth on those one or two channels.

To choose the optimal channel for your startup, find out which channels your customers already frequent. Research and spend time on those channels to become a valuable member of the community that adds value with your digital marketing messages.

Mistake 3: Trying To Market To Everyone

If you attempt to target everyone, you target no one. This is a mistake that I learned early on (the hard way!).

The average consumer is exposed to 5,000 marketing messages per day, which means your digital marketing messages need to stand out by being the most tailored to your audience. If your startup attempts to market to an audience that is too diverse with a wide range of wants, needs, and desires you will be unable to craft digital marketing messages that resonate with anyone. Additionally, with this large audience your marketing messages is competing against a much larger pool of competitors. You want to target a narrow audience (sometimes called a niche) and create messages tailored to them.

You can narrow your target audience by various demographics and psychographics. Demographics are quantitative variables such as age, gender, income, location, and income. Psychographics are qualitative measurements and are often self-defined such as fans of the Patriots, investors, or environmentalists.

Narrowing your message down creates a feeling for that audience member that it is just for them. For example, if you are a startup that provides social media marketing to Crossfit gyms you could narrow your targeting by simply changing the title of your blog, if it was originally titled 7 Things Your Business Needs To Know About Marketing, it would be more tailored by changing the title to 7 Things Your Gym Needs To Know About Facebook Marketing and would be best tailored by titling it 7 Things Your Gym Needs To Know About Facebook Marketing. Even though CrossFit gym owners are business owners, narrowing and tailoring the message makes it resonate more with them.

From experience I have found that tailoring marketing messages to a narrow audience:

Increases the return on ad spend

Increases  email open rates

Increase the amount of feedback on the social networks

Bonus tip: It is important to think about who your target market actually is. For example, if your startup is a site that connects tutors with underperforming school children, initially you may create digital marketing messages tailored to the kids who are underperforming. However, the kids aren’t the ones with the purchasing power: your actual audience is the parents. You would want to target parents of underperforming kids for your marketing with messages that resonate with them.

How to define your target audience via Raven Tools

As a startup, you have a limited budget and limited time to perform your digital marketing. You do not have the financial and staff cushion of larger companies and must be especially careful to avoid mistakes. By tying your digital marketing activities to business objectives, choosing your digital marketing channels specifically, and targeting a specific audience, you avoid three of the most common mistakes startups make with digital marketing and will begin to see profits increase.

Common Print Security Threats And How To Protect Against Them

Converting what you have on the screen to a physical document on paper is a convenient way to store and share information. You can see and feel the information, mark the paper if there is a need for corrections, and store it securely if you need to. Print offers convenience and easy access to your information even without electricity. With this convenience in print, there are common Print security threats. This article will show you some common print security threats and how to protect against them.

With the world becoming increasingly digital, print security is taking more of a back seat. We usually think of security breaches as happening to our digital devices; however, security breaches can still happen in print and print devices.

Common Print Security Threats

Print information can be vulnerable whether in digital form or on paper. Here are some common print security risks and how to minimize or eliminate them.

Misplaced printed documents

Forgetting printed documents in the print tray

Data in motion attack

Printer hacking

Stealing the device

Unsafe device or document disposal

Paper jams

Outsourced print jobs

Faulty printing device

Protecting your data against some common print security threats 1] Misplaced printed documents

Misplacing documents after they are printed can be a common way to have sensitive information seen by others. Whether it is at the print shop, your office, or anywhere in between like public transportation, restaurants or anywhere you may stop.


Important printed documents should be treated carefully just like their digital counterparts. If the documents are very important, try to get them to their destination as quickly as possible and without any unimportant stope in-between.

2] Forgetting printed documents in the print tray

You may share an office space with lots of people, but this does not mean that all persons share the same level of clearance for every data in the office. There may be one network printer that is shared by all and this can be a weak link where sensitive data can get seen by others. This can be even more likely if parts or all of the documents printed are forgotten in the printer tray. It could be also the fact that the printer is far from you so that when the document is sent it is in the printer until you can get there physically. This could allow others to read or even record the document while you are trying to get to it.


If you work with very sensitive data, they should be printed on a separate printer than those used for more common information. These printers should also be located in places that not everyone has access to. It would also be good to get printers that require physical confirmation before they print out that information. This means that not everyone can access the print, even if it is held by the printer.

 3] Data in motion attack


Make sure that the printed and other devices (routers, ports, etc.), are regularly updated. Get the latest driver and firmware updates from the manufacturer. Ensure that WI-FI is password protected and guess WI-FI is separate from the company’s WI-FI. Ensure that sensitive data is encrypted.

4] Printer hacking

Printers and other printing devices are usually weak links in your network. They can be hacked remotely or physically if they are not adequately protected. Without proper access control, persons can hack the devices physically.


Protect your network devices with proper software and firmware updates. It is also good practice to protect them physically with locks and keys. Ensure that you have proper access control. Printers that are used for sensitive information should be kept where only authorized persons can access them with proper access devices.

5] Stealing the device

Without proper security and access control for devices, they can be physically stolen. If the device is physically stolen, persons can have access to the data, stored passwords, user names, and other sensitive information that is on the printer.


Practice proper access control for your property. Treat printers just like you would protect your computer. Keep printers and other devices locked so that unauthorized persons cannot access them. The mistake people sometimes make is thinking that a printer alone is useless to people. However, the right person with the right set of tools can get information from a printer. And as previously mentioned, unprotected printers can be a gateway to other devices on your network.

6] Unsafe device or document disposal

When devices have reached their end of life, they are sometimes disposed of in ways that anyone can access them. A discarded printer may still have enough information that a knowledgeable hacker could use. Documents that are to be disposed of because the data is no longer needed or possibly because of a misprint, may still contain enough sensitive data that can be used by malicious persons.


Ensure that the printing device is properly disposed of. You may need to have the memory removed and check for printed documents that may be in the printer. Check to see if your manufacturer or a reputable company would dispose of the device for you. It is also good to invest in a good paper shredder that will be used to destroy documents before disposing of them. If you dispose of large volumes of documents with sensitive data, it may be a good idea to assign persons for this job.

7] Paper jams

Paper jams are ways that sensitive data can be left in a printer. You may not be able to remove it yourself but the person who does may not have the clearance to see the data that is on the document. paper jams may leave parts of even whole documents in a printer without you even noticing it.


Whenever you print, make sure that you know the number of pages that are to be in the document. Also ensure that if there is a paper jam, and the information is sensitive, supervise the person who is clearing the jam. If the printer needs to go for repair, make sure that the company is reputable. If the repair is in-house ensure that the person repairing is reputable.

8] Outsourced print jobs

If you have print jobs that are too large for your organization to print, you may have to outsource them. This means that your sensitive data will be seen by others outside of your organization. This means that your information is at risk and you do not have a lot of control over what will happen to it.


If you have a lot of sensitive data to print, it may be a good idea to invest in printing equipment. If this is not possible at the moment, make sure to outsource your printing to reputable companies. Ensure that you have a proper paper trail of which company printed so that you know where the information is leaked if it should happen.

9] Faulty printing device

Your organization may have a printer that is malfunctioning and this can cause a security breach. If this printer is shared by multiple persons, the type of malfunction could cause sensitive data to be unintentionally shared. For example, a printer that is double printing/ghost printing could print ghost print sensitive data from a previous print job onto other print jobs. Printers that double print/ghost print may leave sensitive data on internal parts due to the type of ghost print/double print. This could be seen when the printer is opened for repair.


Keep printers that print sensitive information separate from other printers. If that is not possible, make sure that malfunctioning printers are repaired promptly. Ensure that printer repairs are done by reputable persons.

Read: Scanner and Printer won’t work at the same time

What threats can printers pose?

Ensure that the printer is updated as often as possible, and update the firmware and driver. Make sure that the other devices on the network are also updated regularly. Printers that will be used to print sensitive information should be isolated from the main network, they should also be physically protected from unauthorized persons.

How can you secure print documents?

Some manufacturers of printers have a secure print feature built into their printers. The secure print allows users to choose to secure print certain documents or all documents. With secure print enabled for some or all documents. The printer will not release a print job until a pin is entered. If you print sensitive data in an environment where the printer is used by multiple persons, it would be wise to invest in one of these printers.
