Unauthorized access in an organization refers to the act of accessing or attempting to access a system, network, or resource without proper authorization or permission. This can include accessing confidential information, manipulating data, or using the system or network for unauthorized purposes. Unauthorized access is a serious threat to the security and privacy of individuals and organizations.
Unauthorized devices are devices not authorized by a network’s owner or administrator, such as rogue access points, malicious bots, sniffers, or compromised personal devices. These devices can be used by attackers to steal sensitive data, disrupt operations, damage systems, or launch other attacks. Unauthorized access is a challenge that requires constant vigilance and proactive action.
