If you are not worried about a cyberattack then you have probably not been given the right information!
#Cybersecurity or business security should be one of those areas of business that keeps you up at night.
To tell you the truth it should be one of those areas that terrify you!
When the script kiddy targets you with a random automated attack it is not personal, it is just business.
If you have done nothing or very little in the way of protection then you quickly become a victim.
With the average time inside a network of more than 250 days, most organisations have no systems or capabilities to detect them never mind identify or stop them.
From initial infection to the point where your world ends can be as little as 24 hours or they can sit inside your network and wait.
6 – 12 months is normal.
In that time they are documenting your network, your people, your intellectual property, your systems, your access to money and anything else that they can find.
While you are blissfully unaware of them being there they are getting ready to deliver the coupe de tar.
In addition, while they are rummaging through your proverbial underwear drawers your systems could be spamming your friends, running denial of services attacks on corporate networks, bitcoin mining, storing porn for pedophiles all while they destroy your backups and other systems.
And that is just a random capability from an inexperienced criminal, just imagine what Mr. Creepy can do you if he singles you out and makes you his sole purpose in life!
We have put together a simple 2 page ransomware advice brochure (The before, during and after plan) that could go a long way to reducing the impact of a ransomware attack.
