Network Hacking 3 Introduction Hackers today may be armed with nothing more than a computer, operating anonymously behind the scene using technology. While identifying the criminal is nearly impossible, individuals should be aware of the warning signs and learn what steps they can take to regain control of their device. This will not be a job for an ordinary person to attempt. It will take a knowledgeable tech to resolve the hacking issues. There are steps to take when you have been hacked. Your first task should be to shut down the computer and remove the hard drive placing it into an offline computer in order to prevent further damage to any other components associated with your unit. The second task will be to scan your hard drive and your system components to detect any spyware and infections caused from being hacked. Scanning your system will locate any threat to your unit and will either remove the threat or attempt to remove it. The third thing you should do immediately is to backup all your important files, even if they are infected, back them up. According to cyberspace. (2006), you can back them up onto a flash media drive, a DVD disk, or an external hard drive. Once you have taken those steps you will perform a complete wipe of the infected hard drive. Once the infected hard drive has been verified of total wipe the treated hard drive can then be replace back into the old unit re-install the Operating System, update the drivers, install a new anti-virus, and then scan the unit twice to secure it before loading your important data back onto the hard drive. Once those steps have been taken, then you re-scan the unit and update the unit for excess infection fragments that may be lingering or attached to documents data and hardware, software elements. According to Sarno, F. (2015), There is a breach every couple of seconds across the globe because of the lack of adequate post-security protocol Computer integrity conceptualization does not warrant electronic crimes of any type.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
