If you watched the morning news today, you saw again that ransomware attacks are in the headlines—this time with the government and FBI warning hospitals across the nation of potential attacks to their systems. The headlines do not show the havoc cyber criminals cause millions of main street businesses daily.
Ransomware affects organizations of all sizes and in all sectors. Experts say it is not a matter of whether a company will be hit but rather when it will happen.
Cyber-criminals really have no moral constraints about who they go after and whether they put physical or financial lives at risk. Cyber-criminals business is lucrative, and they are capitalizing on companies being distracted with the pandemic. Companies' priority is keeping their employees and customers safe and seeking ways to drive revenue and cut costs to survive, often doing all with less staff, remote teams, and the reassignment of responsibilities. One wrong click on an email or link could shut down a business's systems during this distraction. On top of everything else right now, a ransomware attack is the last thing a business needs to deal with.
This is why we have Delcie Bean of Paragus Strategic IT join us on November 18th at 10 am for a quick hour webinar to help bring you insight into this risk. Not to add something additional to your already filled plate right now but to help prevent a ransomware attack from getting added later.
The more you know about cybercrime, the better position you are in to protect your business.
