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

Business owners should beware of insider threats

The Enemy Within: Tackling Insider Threats in SMBs

In today’s digital age, cybersecurity is a crucial concern for your business. While much focus is placed on external threats like hackers and malware, one of the most significant and often overlooked dangers comes from within the organization: insider threats. Insider threats can manifest through both human error and intentional malicious actions, making it essential for small to medium-sized business (SMB) owners to understand and address these risks effectively. The Scope of Insider Threats Insider threats involve risks posed by employees, former employees, contractors, or business partners who have access to an organization’s internal systems, data, and networks. These threats can be divided into two main categories: The Statistics Understanding the prevalence and impact of insider threats is crucial. According to a 2023 report by the Ponemon Institute, insider threats account for approximately 34% of all data breaches. Of these breaches, around 61% were attributed to negligence or human error,

Safeguarding Patient Trust: Advanced MDR Cybersecurity for Labs and Doctor’s Offices

As a cybersecurity provider, Tech Kahunas understands the importance of protecting sensitive healthcare data and maintaining compliance with regulations like HIPAA. San Diego labs and doctor’s offices face unique challenges in safeguarding Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and ensuring the security of their networks and endpoints. Our comprehensive approach to cybersecurity enables these facilities to enhance their overall security posture and mitigate potential threats. Robust Access Controls Firstly, we emphasize the implementation of robust access controls, such as multi-factor authentication (MFA), to prevent unauthorized access to systems and data. Regular software updates and the deployment of endpoint protection and antivirus solutions are essential to mitigate known vulnerabilities and protect against malware infections. Network segmentation and the use of firewalls and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) further strengthen the overall security posture by controlling and monitoring network traffic, limiting the spread of potential threats. A critical component of our solution is the implementation

Small Business Remote Work

Beyond the Office Walls: Cybersecurity Imperatives for the Remote Work Era

In recent years, the landscape of work has undergone a significant transformation, with remote and hybrid work arrangements becoming increasingly prevalent. While these flexible models offer numerous benefits, they also bring about new challenges, particularly in the realm of cybersecurity. As a small-to-medium business or organization owner, it’s crucial to recognize the heightened risks associated with remote work and take proactive measures to bolster data protection efforts. The Growing Threat Landscape The shift to remote work has undeniably expanded the attack surface for cybercriminals. With employees accessing company systems and data from various locations and devices, the likelihood that you will encounter a data breach increases substantially. Your team of cybersecurity professionals must remain vigilant in identifying and mitigating potential vulnerabilities to safeguard sensitive information from unauthorized access or exploitation. Strengthening Defenses with Additional Measures To mitigate the risks associated with remote work, organizations must implement additional layers of security.
