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

Implement Zero Trust Architecture

Trust No One: Why Zero Trust is a Must-Have for SMBs in 2024

It’s understandable with your daily business pressures that have evolved over the last few years that your company or organizations needs to embrace zero trust. The pandemic presented small businesses and organizations with new security considerations: remote workers with access to a much wider range of apps, new ways of working onsite, bring your own devices, cloud-based assets, and new supply chain and vendor processes. You may have put together additions like these to your network ad hoc. Now you have an unwieldy patchwork of devices and computers at your business. But the tweaks you put in place have also extended your network boundaries (or “perimeter”). In adding devices and computers as needed, you (and your administrators!) have added security vulnerabilities. You’ve lost track, and your problems are becoming more apparent every day. This new reality demands a new security paradigm. What is Zero Trust? In the traditional “castle-and-moat” approach

Criminals Driving In Cars: Auto Hackers and War Drivers Are On Your Network

As a small business owner, you’ve worked hard to build a competitive operation and strong reputation with customers. However, have you considered the wireless cybersecurity vulnerabilities that could put it all at risk? Wireless technologies have become integral to everything from your business network to your company’s vehicles. Malicious driveby hackers are looking to exploit your Wi-Fi networks and business vehicles. In this blog, I will show you how to expose and mitigate war driving and car hacking. What is War Driving? War driving refers to the practice of driving around with specialized hardware/software to detect and map the locations and characteristics of wireless networks like Wi-Fi access points. Though war driving itself isn’t inherently malicious, the information it gathers could enable nefarious activities. For your small business relying on your wireless network, an attacker armed with war driving data could potentially: Don’t think you’re immune — every business with

Beef up your mobile device security

Five Common Mobile Device Threat Vectors That Will Get You Thinking

Our hyper-connected world is filled with mobile phones and tablets. They’re indispensable tools serving as gateways to the internet and business networks. You use them for personal communication, banking, and work-related activities, and you rely on these devices to manage the various aspects of your life. But this increased reliance on mobile devices also makes you vulnerable to security threats and breaches. Around 24,000 malicious mobile apps are blocked daily on mobile app stores (Google Play, Apple App Store) in 2024. Mobile banking malware or other cyber attacks showed a considerable increase of over 50 percent in 2019. In this blog, I’ll delve into the importance of mobile device security and explore practical steps to enhance the security of your smartphones and tablets. More mobile cybersecurity statistics – In 2023, 42% of organizations reported that vulnerabilities in mobile devices and web applications have led to a security incident – Based
