With the increase in cyber attacks, it’s more important than ever to keep your data secure. Whether you are a small business owner, a home user or an IT professional, keeping up with the latest cyber security threats and best practices will help you prevent an attack on your organization or computer.
During October we ran our annual Cyber Security Awareness Month campaign on social media channels including Facebook, Instagram and Linked, where we shared knowledge and spread awareness on various topics revolving around the threat of cyberattacks. In case you are not following us on social media, below are the top posts we have sharedover the last couple of weeks:
The government agencies that track cyber security threats estimate that 4,000 ransomware attacks occur daily, a 300% increase over the 1,000 attacks per day that were reported in 2015.
As you may know, there's an alarming trend in cyber security right now. The U.S. government agencies that track cyber security threats estimate at least 4,000 ransomware attacks occur daily, a 300% increase over the 1,000 attacks per day that were reported in 2015. Many of these attacks are against small businesses and home users, those who lack the resources to recover from the crippling impact of an attack.
While October is commonly referred to as “Cyber Security Month”, it is important to remember that protecting your valuable assets—your business data and your customers’ personal information—require vigilance year round.
Protecting your business is not a seasonal issue.
You need to be vigilant about your customers' data. Cyber security is an important topic because of the lurking threat of ransomware, cyber attacks and data breaches. It is important to take time to evaluate your business infrastructure to ensure that you have the information you need to mitigate risk and keep your organization protected.
