Why is Cyber Security important to your business? You want to stay in business right?
Information security is something you should be thinking of now before your network is compromised, not after.
More and more we hear of companies experiencing network breaches. In most instances, the breach affects large organizations. Most recently, these breaches are happening to smaller companies that are known to have limited security capabilities making them easy targets for a multitude of vulnerability exploits.
There are many different software and device choices on the market. How do you know what to use and what you actually need? Can you put a price on reliability, piece of mind, and the security of your customer and proprietary information? As part of a business continuity plan, what are your plans if the power goes out? How can you recover the time lost? What if all of your customer information was erased? How would you recover the time spent trying to get the information back or restored to your system? What if you are unable to restore the information because a backup plan was not put in motion?
Recently a local organization was the target of a Phishing Attack. The attack targeted only a few known email addresses. The email sent appeared legitimate, but was socially engineered to have the recipient enter information about their bank. Once the information was entered, the sender had the information they needed to begin taking money from the account. This is actually a Spear Phishing Attack because the attacker chose to attack a specific target. This sort of attack can happen to anyone, but can be detected if you know what to look for.
Where are all of these vulnerabilities coming from?
