We’re back with another episode of The 101! This weekly security series aims to define endpoint security one question at a time. Tune in each week as we tackle a new term, concept, or comparison in our ongoing effort to provide clear definitions.

Last week we started our discussion about malware by breaking down its major types. These distinctions are important because they help us craft the right strategies for defending ourselves; namely how we prioritize our time, money, and resources.

But when it comes to tactics, we need to have a better sense of how malware works so we know how to defend ourselves. So, to continue our discussion in today’s episode, we ask: “How does malware actually work?”
