Threats of Cyber-Attacks Dominate Today’s News
In May 2021, Colonial Pipeline in Texas was the victim of a ransomware cyber-attack that shut down their business and an important supply chain for gasoline and jet fuel. The hacker group demanded $4.4 million in order to restore the network. This viral news brought the threat of cyber-attacks to the top of everyone’s minds.
This event made the news, but the truth is, the same thing happens to small businesses around the world every day. In fact, a cyber-attack occurs every 39 seconds.
To compound this worry, war and political turmoil have only increased in recent months. With advanced technology on the rise, it’s easier than ever for adversaries to cause serious damage worldwide. The threat of cyber-attack through ransomware, malware, phishing, data breach, online fraud, and major IT outages are not a matter of if, but when. Someone just like you could be the victim of a hacker and potentially have to spend thousands of dollars and countless hours trying to recover.
