Last week it was revealed that Arizona Beverages, a large beverage supplier in the US, experienced a massive ransomware attack in March. Weeks later, the company is still struggling to recover from this attack.
Most cloud providers have a huge vulnerability and it's up to businesses to close this big security gap. Sound scary? It is. But it does not have to be.

Not long ago I read, “The Untold Story of NotPetya, the Most Devastating Cyberattack in History,” an eye-opening article on Wired about a massive cyberattack that happened roughly a year ago in 2017. If you have 15 minutes, I highly recommend reading it. If you don't, then allow me to summarize: In 2017, NotPetya malware infected large companies such as Merck, Maersk, and others (companies with huge IT teams and thousands of employees), and literally brought their entire operations to a grinding halt for days, if not weeks, costing them upwards of $300 million in damages per company.

The business of owning and running a law firm constantly evolves, but has seen vast change, particularly over the last few years.
A disaster in the IT world comes in many forms – natural disasters, ransomware, a cyber breach, and acts of terrorism, just to name a few. These disasters disrupt normal business and can ultimately have severe and expensive consequences on a company’s reputation and bottom line.
The bad news is many companies think these disasters can never happen to them and don’t take the proper precautions; the good news is that prevention of many disasters is attainable, and planning ensures that when there is a disaster, your company is prepared to get back to business as usual.

Small businesses, especially law and accounting firms that deal with sensitive data and financial transactions need to be concerned about cybersecurity. Cyber attacks are becoming more sophisticated and more rampant every day. Luckily, there are some very important – and often inexpensive – things every organization can do to protect themselves.
There is an increase in the frequency and efficacy of data breaches that can bring a firm’s operations to a standstill. Data breaches are often the result of vulnerable hardware and software where security measures may be weak or out of date, presenting an opportunity to hackers and ransomware. Far too often, businesses do not realize they are victims of breaches for days or even weeks, and by then, there is often nothing that can be done to repair the damage.
