At Codified we utilize industry best practices and an ongoing system to reduce and minimize risk for your organization’s data and sensitive client information. Today, individuals and companies are often forced to risk tremendous amounts of data in take-it-or-leave-it policies that make privacy loss the price of convenience. The benefits of the mobile workplace and the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend come with added risk. The digital economy is growing more complex while a lack of highly trained security workers persists worldwide. “Internet of Things (IoT)” means that there is a stronger need more than ever to safeguard IT everywhere. The majority of corporate boards now report that they are actively addressing cybersecurity.
Cyber espionage shows no sign of reduction in the aftermath of the known breaches, like Target, Sony Pictures and Dropbox just to mention a few. Cyber threats continue cause damage to companies.
Ransomware alone has seen a 165% increase the past two years. If your company doesn’t have a security policy and tools in place to protect your data, your business could be at risk. The Ransomware virus has many variants (such as Cryptolocker, Cryptowall, Locky and WannaCry), which utilize an array of methods and entry points to infect and encrypt a company’s servers and data. Most infections result from unsuspecting employees opening infected emails, which appear to be legitimate.
The latest version of ransomware, WannaCry has infected over 230,000 computers in over 150 computers, this ransomware spread across local networks and internet to systems that have not been updated with the most recent security updates.
