Wiper attacks are malware-based attacks designed to permanently delete or corrupt data on targeted systems. They are highly dangerous as they can cause irreversible damage, severe business disruption, damage to brand reputation, and even public utility disruptions. To defend against these, technology professionals must understand their workings and employ cybersecurity strategies such as recognition of early warning signs, continuous monitoring, swift incident response, regular data backups, and frequent security patch updates. Tools such as CrowdStrike’s Falcon platform offer comprehensive protection against such threats.
