Is Your Data Safe?

Category : Uncategorized

Almost half of small businesses surveyed by an online backup company said the fear of losing data keeps them up at night. However, only 36 percent said they have a detailed disaster recovery plan.

In this digital age the data stored on our computers, servers and in the “cloud” are the life of the business. How would your company respond if that data was lost or compromised by hackers? A study by the National Cyber Security Alliance found that up to 60% of small and medium-sized companies who fell victim to cybercrime went out of business within six months of the attack.

Natural disasters, equipment failures, ransomware, phishing attacks and hacks are just a few of the many ways your data can be lost or compromised. Hiring an IT specialist to set up a disaster recovery plan and security system for your company is one of the best things you can do for your business. Only experienced professionals can design and implement safeguards to suit your specific company needs as well as be on top of maintenance, updates and checks of your systems and network. When a security breach or data loss happens, it is vital to have a specialist that is able to safeguard your data and reduce loss and down time.

What is Ransomware? Should you be concerned?

Category : Uncategorized

Ransomware is a class of malware infection that is rapidly becoming the most common way cybercriminals attempt to “con” money from infected users. Recent forms of ransomware “encrypt” or lock access to an infected device’s files. Commonly the files locked include Word documents, spreadsheets, pictures, databases and others. It can also encrypt files on your servers.

Once infected, it is virtually impossible to access these files without a “key” from the hackers. Typically, a screen displays on the infected device listing a website link in order to pay a “ransom” and re-gain access to your files. This ransom can range from $200 to $10,000, and even if you pay the ransom there is no guarantee they key will work!

Concerned? You should be. One hacker group generated $325 million in revenue in one year alone from ransomware! These infections generally gain access to your devices via an infected website or email attachment.
