Cybersecurity for Small Business

Published By: Code42     Published Date: Feb 28, 2018
Disaster Recovery Plan Roadmap Learn how automatic backup delivers guaranteed business data protection and recovery—no matter the threat. When ransomware hits, the average small business experiences two full days of downtime. One-third of businesses lose revenue and all experience brand and loyalty damage that’s harder to quantify. To stop the bleeding, most small businesses end up paying at least $2,500 to get their data back. But paying the ransom doesn’t guarantee anything. Plenty of businesses have fully complied with the ransom demands, only to have the ransomer increase the ransom request—or simply take off with the ransom and the data.

How IT and Audit Can Work Together to Strengthen Cybersecurity

Published By: AuditBoard     Published Date: Nov 26, 2018
Affecting over 200,000 machines in more than 150 countries, the ransomware known as Wanna Decryptor, or “WannaCry,” became the largest cybersecurity attack in history in May 2017. The malicious software locked out users from critical data, and demanded a ransom payment to unlock the contents. Governments, hospitals, and corporations scrambled to address the attack and prevent the infection from spreading. Ironically, the virus’ execution method was simple: it exploited a vulnerable Windows SMB protocol to spread – an exploit Microsoft had addressed two months prior to the attack with the release of a patch.

Advanced Endpoint Security for Dummies

Published By: Symantec     Published Date: Jun 13, 2018
Today’s workforce is increasingly nomadic. Employees use personal and company-owned devices desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with various operating systems to access corporate resources over different networks from virtually anywhere. Roaming users and cloud-based applications have eroded the network perimeter where enterprises have traditionally focused their security controls. In the wake of this disruption, vendors offered myriad point products that solve only a portion of the security problem. These products usually require costly custom integrations and high management overhead to boot. Making matters worse, traditional security approaches can’t address an evolving threat landscape that includes ransomware, stealthy attacks that dwell in a customer’s environment for months, and threats targeting iOS and Android devices. In fact, the mobile workforce is more vulnerable than ever before.

Stop Rowing Alone: Integrated Cybersecurity Ecosystems Will Get You Further

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Jun 06, 2018
System vulnerabilities, ransomware, malware, intrusions, and other malicious activities are on the rise, showing that today’s cybersecurity professionals are hard-pressed to keep enterprises secure. Although threats are growing in sophistication and attack vectors are expanding, many of the intrusions and cyber attacks happening today are simply a result of improper protections being put in place, systems going unpatched, or weak security policies. While much of the blame is being placed on cybersecurity professionals, the real blame should often be placed upon the tools and policies that many of those professionals have come to trust and the complexity that comes with them.

eBook: Defend Your Data

Published By: Cohesity     Published Date: Mar 19, 2019
Every 14 seconds. That’s how often analysts predict ransomware will attack a business this year.1 Despite the best efforts to thwart ransomware attacks, cyber criminals are innovative, and they continue to create new malware. This means more sophisticated and targeted ransomware attacks are coming—all with the same goal: Disrupt business operations in the hopes victims will pay to restore order. No industry is immune. And because enterprises are now even more attractive targets than consumers,2 your organization must proactively prepare for when, not if, cyber criminals come for your data.
