Your Frequently Asked Questions

A cyber attack happens every 39 seconds. While some attacks–through software purchased on the dark web–are automated and/or unsuccessful, you have to be prepared. Today an average 10,000 cyber-attacks take place each day against SMBs and organizations.
An unsuccessful attack, called a cybersecurity incident, should be a warning. Hackers may come back and try again. And when an incident becomes a successful ‘attack’ (businesses firewall has been breached, data leaked or lost), the costs can be debilitating for the small to medium business or organization. The 2023 average cost of a data breach was over $4.45 million. Sixty percent of the entities attacked go out of business within 6 months.
A cyber threat is the possibility of an attack.
A cyber risk is an estimate of the possible losses associated with the threat. For instance, compromise of private health information (PHI) is a cyber threat for healthcare-related businesses. The associated cyber risk is the probability that a data compromise will occur and that there will be lost revenues due to downtime and damage to reputation.

A firewall sits between a local computer or network and the Internet. Its access lists filter inbound and outbound traffic according to rules an admin or user sets. Firewalls are not 100% effective however. They must be checked often and cybersecurity providers may do penetration testing to determine their effectiveness.

Business email compromise (BEC) that results in wire transfer fraud and ransomware are the two most prevalent (and critical) threats facing SMBs and organizations.

With BEC, attackers gain access to email servers at a business and monitor all traffic to gather personal information. After spending some time (perhaps months) to learn the ins and outs of the business’ finances, they compromise a payment using the personal information they found. This relies on deception regarding account numbers and transfers.

Ransomware is malware (malicious software) that involves compromise of a network, encryption of the organization’s operating systems and data, and subsequent demand of a ransom to decrypt the systems and data. The threat actors usually ask victims for payment (ranging from the hundreds to millions of dollars) using cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin. Convincing phishing emails are one of the means of attack (vectors) that ransomware begins with. Ransomware criminals now rely on impressive services such as 24/7 tech support and trained negotiators. Unprotected backups are frequently targeted and recovery then becomes more difficult.

With over 90% of cyberattacks being due to user error, education for employees and partners can help to prevent attacks. Training should be regular and will create greater cyber awareness at your organization. It will also help minimize internal threats. One such area for education is for dealing with phishing emails. With 85% of all email being spam (i.e. marketing or malware), user training to recognize and avoid clicking is of utmost importance. Part of “cyber hygiene” involves safe practices while web browsing, emailing, texting, or other online communication.
Cloud services are flexible, scalable and less expensive, but their data, user credentials, and login technologies can also be compromised.
Mobile device attacks are also increasing, mainly through infected apps, compromised WiFi hotspots and also SIM swap attacks.

Symptoms include:
Computer crashes and blue screens
Slow computer performance (could be adware or spyware)
Increased network traffic
Missing files/system files
Low or no storage available
Browser popups or extensions you do not recognize
Disabled malware protection
Unexpected behavior

Artificial Intelligence in Security

Unlocking Cybersecurity: Leveraging AI to Stay Ahead of Cyber Threats

Artificial intelligence (AI) plays a crucial role in enhancing cybersecurity across various domains. Beyond generative AI chat bots like ChatGPT, AI can contribute to your cybersecurity in some key ways: Threat Detection and Prevention Artificial intelligence (AI) has revolutionized threat detection and prevention in cybersecurity by leveraging advanced machine learning algorithms to analyze massive volumes of data in real-time. AI can recognize patterns. It detects anomalies. And it identifies potential cyber threats, ranging from malware infections to sophisticated hacking attempts. Using historical data, AI algorithms can continuously monitor network traffic, system logs, and user behaviors and can identify emerging threats and zero-day vulnerabilities. Organizations can bolster their cybersecurity defenses by identifying and mitigating potential risks before they escalate into full-blown security incidents. AI can now respond automatically to threats through threat prevention mechanisms. Your organization can take immediate action by, for example, isolating infected devices or blocking malicious IP addresses
