Cyberattacks up 400% since COVID-19
According to FBI statistics, since March 2020 there has been a 400% increase in cyberattack complaints. The past year, companies have adopted the work from home approach to accommodate the safety of their employees during the pandemic. Hackers are using this to their advantage by exploiting insecure networks due to lack of ‘on-premise’ security. Many people don’t realize that oftentimes the ideal target for cybercriminals are smaller, less protected businesses. Through ransomware attacks, hackers can gain leverage that is relatively easy for them to achieve, as opposed to how cumbersome it is for them to attack larger organizations, who’ve invested much more into their cybersecurity defense strategy.
At Complete Technology Solutions, we’ve developed three simple strategies designed to minimize exposure and dramatically increase the safety and security of our customers’ networks.
