Cyberattack – Why are we so vulnerable

By the end of 2022, it is predicted that not for profits, associations, charities and SMEs will face more than 50,000 cyberattacks per day.

99% of those attacks are automatic, random generated attacks that can be counteracted by available basic systems (AV, Firewalls, SPAM filters, SPAM blockers).

These automatic random attacks are created by in-training cybercriminals and cyber activists (script kiddies).

Although the numbers are astounding they also indicate that we need to be vigilant at all times.

Because we still need to address that 1%.

That approximate 500 attacks are targeted at YOU and your organisation.

That is focused on gaining access to your stuff, stealing your money or encrypting your data.

How do we stop that?

We do not and can not stop it by believing “it will never happen to me”, “we are not a target” “we have nothing worth stealing”

We stop it by being proactive.

We stop it by taking security seriously.

We stop it with increased awareness!

We stop it with capability.

Doing nothing is not an option.

If you are frozen like a kangaroo in the headlights of a fast-moving truck then you need a push

A push in the right direction.

A direction that delivers better business security.

Like any complex and dangerous journey, we start with a single step.

That first simple step is to have a conversation with someone like me.
