Why would a cyber criminal attack my business?
Hackers target vulnerabilities. They don’t know you, don’t care about you and probably don’t even speak your language. They will attack any open port configured to accept external connections on any network from anywhere in the world. And that’s where the trouble starts.
What is Ransomware?
And how could this affect my business?
In reality, ransomeware is as nasty as it sounds. And the effects on your business could be devastating. A typical ransomware incident can start innocently. When people are online or using email, clicking on a file intentionally made to appear legitimate or important isn’t so hard to do. The busier you are, the more because off guard you tend to be, and ransomware hackers know that. Once you click, ransomware propagates to any shared directories they are attached to. Then it gets real nasty. The ransomware locks files. It encrypts them, copies them, deletes them, so all you have left is an encrypted version. Your files are inaccessible until you pay up what the hackers are asking. That’s why it’s called ransomware. It’s a huge problem with businesses all over the world. It can be avoided.
NIST Cybersecurity Framework
The less risk to your business the better. Using NIST* framework as a guide, Total created Total’s Layered Defense solution to minimize threats and promote business continuity. The chart depicts the cybersecurity framework and some of Total’s Layered Defense components.
