Threat actors include but are not limited to, amateurs, hacktivists, organized crime groups, state-sponsored, and terrorist groups. Threat actors are individuals or groups of individuals who perform cyberattacks. Cyberattacks are intentional malicious acts meant to negatively impact another individual or organization. In this article, I will talk about four types of threat actors in Cyber Attacks.
Amateurs, also known as script kiddies, have little or no skill. They often use existing tools or instructions found on the internet to launch attacks. Some are just curious, while others try to demonstrate their skills by causing harm. Even though they are using basic tools, the results can still be devastating.
Much of the hacking activity that consistently threatens our security is motivated by financial gain. These cybercriminals want to gain access to our bank accounts, personal data, and anything else they can leverage to generate cash flow.
