Many small to medium businesses are unaware of the dangers of operating within the technology world of today.
The common misconceptions are reflected in what SMB owners are saying: “We have antivirus software”, “We’re too small to be targeted”, “We don’t have anything hackers would want”.
Small to medium businesses that have already suffered a ransomware attack in the last 12 months had antivirus, email/spam filters and web filtering in use. The ransomware walked right in undetected by the dated security mechanisms in place.
Modern companies need to become digital fortresses with multiple layers of proactive protection that serve to monitor, detect, alert, record, and prevent the onslaught of cyberattacks.
- Identity Protection & Access Management
- Email Security
- Endpoint Security
- Remote Monitoring and Security Operations Center
- Segmented Local Area Networks
- Internet and Network Security
- Mobile Device Security
- Backup and Disaster Recovery
- End User Training
- Data Loss Protection
The criminals that perform attacks that are directly affecting SMB’s are NOT talented hackers; they are simply using easy to acquire software and simple techniques to hide themselves in order to procure large amounts of money from cyber-insurance companies and the businesses that have no choice but to come up with the ransom. And, why not? The results have been more than ludicrous.
The growth of cybercrime is exploding and is expected to reach $6 trillion globally by 2021. At that pace, only the GDPs of the US and China would be larger. Source <https://www.optiv.com/explore-optiv-insights/blog/just-how-big-cybercrime-anyway
