Ransomware is growing. In size, in scale, in finesse. It is one of the greatest cyber security threats companies are facing right now. Here is an example and some handy tips.
For a company in Zaventem, yesterday was a sad day. The company is being held hostage by cyber criminals who used ransomware.
More than 1.000 employees are unemployed. This example shows why you should defend yourself. Recently my colleague Christophe wrote an article about why your firm should invest more in security. That sounds harsh, but the numbers don’t lie. Two thirds of Belgian companies are already victims of cybercrime.
My colleague Renauld wrote an interesting piece earlier, about the fact that ransomware is on the rise again. It explains how it works and the different forms of attacks.
Some handy tips
Here are some very interesting articles my colleagues wrote in the past:
- back up, your last line of defense (about how and where to back up)
- do I need a dedicated anti spam solution? (anti spam solution compared to default Office 365)
- sme's don't protect themselves well (why vulnerability scanning could be the key to your security problems)
