Cybercrime is on the rise, exposing organizations to financial risks including ransom payments to recover encrypted data, regulatory fines and lawsuits related to data breaches, and revenue lost while mission critical systems are down.
Large organizations have made significant investments in cyber defense and so, threat actors have begun targeting small and medium size organizations more frequently.
How can small organizations stay safe without overspending on cyber defense?
Micro Technology Solutions offers managed cybersecurity services that fit your budget. Our team of experts will leverage our investment in security tools and training to keep your organization safe for a fraction of the cost of hiring your own cybersecurity experts.
Current Cybersecurity Threats
Phishing and ransomware are two of the biggest cybersecurity threats businesses encounter today. Phishing attacks make up around 20% of cyber attacks. And instances of ransomware have doubled since 2021.
Phishing is a social engineering attack where scammers try to trick users into giving them sensitive information like passwords or credit card numbers. Because Phishing attacks are easily executed via email, they are extremely common. Email filtering, DNS Security, and user training are key to thwarting Phishing attacks.
Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts sensitive data and demands a ransom to decrypt it. These attacks often include the threat of publicizing sensitive information. Ransomware can halt operations for data dependent businesses and even paying the ransom doesn’t guarantee regaining access to a firm’s data.
These attacks can cause unnecessary stress and damage, so it’s important to have a plan in place to prevent them from happening in the first place.
