You’ve heard of the classic phishing attack where cybercriminals send rogue emails purporting to be from legitimate entities such as large corporations and government agencies. You may have also heard of hackers using voice calls and text messages to victimize more unsuspecting users.
Many of you may have begun to hear about a new requirement that will be placed in your RFP contracts next year called the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). As your trusted advisor with new cyber regulations, I wanted to give you an update on what is known about this program.
In a world where technology is rapidly evolving and cybercriminals are constantly looking for new ways to steal data from unsuspecting victims, cybersecurity awareness has never been more important. You never know when your employees will come across phishing or malware attacks, so it's a good idea to regularly conduct security training sessions.
It takes just one click on a rogue link, or a press of the Enter key for your company’s sensitive data to be stolen by hackers, and use the information for identity and financial theft. And it’s not surprising why these events happen so suddenly — your employees are susceptible to security breaches.
Phishing is a method of stealing account information such as login credentials and credit card details by pretending to be a trusted individual or firm in an email and other electronic communiques — remains popular among cybercriminals. According to Verizon’s 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), phishing was responsible for 32% of confirmed breaches as well as 78% of cyber-espionage incidents in 2018.
Everyone is vulnerable to phishing attacks, therefore it’s important to know what to do in case you or your employees encounter an email that might be a scam.
Email will always be an essential communication and collaboration medium in your business. However, it also enables cybercriminals to devise sophisticated phishing attacks.
Phishing is the fraudulent practice of sending emails claiming to be a legitimate entity such as a trusted company or an individual in order to acquire login credentials and steal personal and financial information.
It’s never easy learning about technology, and its rapid development isn’t helping businesses understand it any further. However, it’s important for everyone in your organization to be familiar with tech jargon. Once you learn the language, you can take advantage of technology better to not only keep a competitive edge, but also ensure maximum profits, high employee morale, and happier customers.
Businesses are investing large sums of money in IT to help them succeed. Company data is what’s at stake, and firms must do everything to protect them from unwanted entities. Disasters could lead to enormous losses, low employee morale, and worst of all, damaged customer trust.
Today, more than ever, business performance depends heavily on a company’s IT maturity level, which refers to a set of technology-driven capabilities that match the organization’s ability to achieve desired outcomes. Fortunately, that doesn’t require spending on the latest hardware and bespoke software solutions that break the bank.
Your in-house data centers can become overworked with rising corporate demands, and this could lead to costly downtime. To solve this problem, you need to expand your business' needs. This is where colocation can come in handy.
Colocation refers to a service offered by managed IT services providers (MSPs) that provides a secure space for enterprises to manage their data storage equipment.
