Why does ransomware keep showing up in the news? Should you be worried? The answer is YES, because in 2021 there is an attack every 11 seconds. But Parthiv, you say, attackers don’t care about my small business - so I shouldn’t be worried, right? WRONG! Ransomware uses sophisticated methods to trick your employees and create trouble for you in the process. What if someone accidentally downloads a fake invoice? Now your computers are down, you can’t take credit cards, and you’re spending money to bring everything back to normal.
What is the unlikely negative outcome of the infamous 2020? You will never guess - It is business cybersecurity. Not a lot of people realize that there were whole industries that had to switch from office work to remote working positions. The number of folks learning technology and installing home offices was shocking and that is bringing up a whole load of concerns for privacy and security.
I am not talking about someone forgetting to shut off their webcam on the zoom call and flashing their underwear - I am speaking about corporate blackmail, ransomware, stealing of sensitive information and other cybersecurity-related risks.
