Contemporary cyberattacks have evolved to a point that enables hackers and organizations with malicious intent to discover the vulnerabilities of any type of company, in any industry. One of the sectors that are highly exposed to threats of data theft and other types of cyberattacks is the energy industry.
With the evolution of technology and digital systems, hackers have a multitude of opportunities for malicious attacks at their disposal. No longer is it enough to rely on antivirus software or firewalls for the reliable protection of your business.
With the rising sophistication of threat actors on a global scale, cybersecurity is becoming not only top of mind for CISOs but for organisation executives, too. These individuals are increasingly seeking to protect their businesses from cyber attacks – in whatever form they may come.
Undoubtedly, ransomware attacks have become a major part of the cybersecurity landscape. Attacks have increased over the past one-year period and this reveals that both government, non-profit, and private organisations need to remain ever more vigilant to protect their valuable data from a malicious breach. It appears that no industry is safe and caution and foresight must be exercised by all parties in an organisational ecosystem, and not just the CIOs. With this in mind, we take a quick look at what ransomware is, what the statistics show for the first half of 2022 as well as trends and measures you can take now to protect your organisation.
The digitization of different parts of the world has utterly altered many industries. The transportation and logistics industry is no exception. Thanks to the ever-growing technology, T&L companies are now able to fill gaps, achieve higher efficiencies, and evolve. However, the reliance on digital solutions and connected technologies also goes hand in hand with a number of serious cybersecurity risks.
Organizations are becoming increasingly interconnected with the use of third-parties in the supply chain. Vendors, suppliers, and service providers are a crucial piece of the puzzle and working in tandem with them to reduce and mitigate cybersecurity risks is a must. But where do you begin such a process and why is it important in the first place?
Ever since the internet came around – together with digital devices and those that enable us to go online and shop, conduct business, bank, and so much more – small and large businesses have faced cybersecurity threats. With every passing day, organizations have to contend with hackers, spammers, and others whose sole purpose is stealing sensitive data, money and resources, and damaging businesses. In fact, it’s estimated that by 2025, cybercrime is expected to cost the world around $10..5 trillion annually and these costs are predicted to increase by around 15% by 2026. To add to this, there’s been a 150% rise in ransom attacks and this reached over 300% in 2020 alone. So, how can businesses protect themselves from such malicious attacks and is it possible to do this on a budget?
