Cyber Security!!!
You have seen first hand what a cyber attack can do when they attack a business, specifically a gas pipeline. You may be thinking these criminal hackers are only looking to hit big companies to get big payoffs. You would be mistaken!
Thousands of small companies are attacked and fall prey to these hackers every week. The stats are scary:
  • Ransomware perpetrators carry out more than 4,000 attacks daily.
  • 1 in 3,000 emails that pass through filters contains malware.
  • On average, organizations pay a ransom of $233,217.
  • There’s a 19-day downtime following a ransomware attack.
  • 95 new ransomware families were discovered in 2019.
  • Ransomware attacks in the education sector rose by 388% between Q2 and Q3 of 2020.
  • In 2021, ransomware attacks against businesses will occur every 11 seconds.
  • The global cost associated with ransomware recovery will exceed $20 billion in 2021.1
Most businesses do not have a 5+ person IT team to monitor their data 24/7. So, we all use some form of security, but did you know there is a group you can join that will help you if you are attacked? These groups help you stay in compliance with CISA (Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act) in case you and your customer's data is compromised in a breech.

If you are interested in this group that will help in fending off lawsuits, give me a shout, and I will give you the details. This is not Cyber Insurance!

6 Things Every Small Business Needs to Know About Ransomware Attacks
It's tempting to think the average cyber extortionist has bigger fish to fry than your small business. Last month alone, hackers targeted the largest petroleum pipeline in the United States, Ireland's national health service, the city of Gary, Indiana, and numerous other big targets.

But while they may receive less attention, 50 to 70 percent of ransomware attacks are aimed at small and medium-sized companies, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said during a U.S. Chamber of Commerce event in May. And changes in business practices, accelerated by the pandemic, have left small businesses even more vulnerable.
