In case you missed it, Arctic Wolf and GAGE conducted a joint webinar explaining the risks of cyber attacks on businesses, big and small.
What would happen to your business if you fell under a cyber attack? Do you have backups? Do you use cloud-based systems? Are you insured against cyber attacks? If you answered no to any of these questions, you might need to consider securing your business against cybercriminals.
It’s not a level playing field, cybercriminals are not some far-off entity you never have to worry about. They are businesses set up in foreign countries that target individuals and companies of all capacities to cause financial damage. Attacks are increasing and the level of security around what companies are doing to protect themselves is starting to heat up. Insurers are reducing coverage and increasing the costs of policies against these attacks and will evaluate your technology similar to a credit check.
So, what do you do? Educating and preparing your employees to stop social engineering attacks like phishing is critical since 90% of attacks target employees. Cloud-based systems such as DropBox, Google Drive, etc., and having backups make it harder for hackers to manipulate. Most importantly, having a company with the right resources in place to help you stay secure is vital to keeping your operations running. With GAGE and Arctic Wolf partnering together, we are constantly looking for cracks and monitoring the dark web to help customers and manage their vulnerability. Pick a framework, and be proactive about risk management to protect your business.
