Whatever cybersecurity 22 Texas towns, counties, and government agencies had in place on August 16, 2019, it did not prevent a devastating coordinated ransomware attack. This newsworthy data breach is a sign of two recent trends in the very aggressive world of cybercrime. First, ransomware is on the rise. Secondly, consumers are less desirable targets than they used to be because they represent a very poor return on investment compared to a large corporation or government agency. However, because consumers are historically easy targets even after suffering through the effects of an attack, they are still vulnerable.
Before hackers are detected in a computer network, they are usually moving through the network for approximately 190 days. Cybersecurity today means going on the hunt for cyber threats that may have breached a network. Solely relying on a layered network of defensive walls is no longer sufficient to prevent disaster caused by ransomware. Research shows that the number of gangs carrying out targeted ransomware attacks has greatly multiplied.
It can be daunting for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) to lack IT personnel and yet recognize how crucial it is to have network security because of looming threats. Managed service providers (MSPs) offer an affordable solution.
Monthly IT support is handled in a proactive manner plus clients benefit from a full team of IT experts, including those up-to-date on the latest tactics of cybercriminals. An MSP is often the best strategy for cybersecurity and gaining peace of mind about network security that will prevent ransomware and other malicious attacks to your business.
