It seems as though a day doesn’t pass without some form of Cyberattack hitting the news, when a well-known brand is involved every media outlet is interested. Cyber criminals are no longer only targeting retailers and banks; all businesses are now at threat.
Unfortunately not all businesses are doing what they can to remain protected.
Malicious adverts (malvertisements) are now being placed on reputable websites. As a business owner this activity threatens your business by either your employee innocently interacting with the advert and/ or if you house a website with advertisements.
Cyber criminals are wise and it is unlikely that you would be able to detect the danger before it is too late.
An infection called Ransomware is also in circulation affecting the data of many businesses. If you are a user of Microsoft Windows, your business is at threat. Once infected, users are seeing red boxes appearing on their screens and access to their files being removed.
So what can your business do to reduce the threat of cybercrime and the potential impact to business as usual?
Prevention is key. We advise all businesses to implement security strategies that target three key areas:
- Threat Management: Fight cybercrime with threat intelligence detection, protection and remediation
- Vulnerability Management: Protect your business by proactively scanning, testing and remediating network and database weaknesses
- Internal Threat management: Minimise risks by identifying and deploying security best practices
