Ransomware Attacks Are Getting Worse

Ransomware is not a new phenomenon but for cybercriminals it has become a popular technique to use.  In a ransomware attack, cybercriminals block access to a business or individual’s computer system and hold data hostage until a ransom is paid.  Here, cybercriminals have just one goal - to receive payment from the victim.  Even if the victim is able to pay the ransom, there is no guarantee the criminal will provide the decryption key to release the data.

Recently, ransomware attacks have become significant threats to corporations, cities, and even nations.  In the third quarter of 2019, the average ransomware payout increased to $41,000, a 13% increase from the second quarter.  Also in 2019, 55% of SMBs paid cybercriminals to recover their stolen data.  If nothing else, 2019 proved that ransomware is still a profitable business for cybercriminals and it will continue to get worse.

8 Reasons Why Software is Still Stronger than Ever

Last year, I met the managing partner of a law firm who was in the middle of moving to a new practice management system.  The firm had been on the existing software solution for close to two decades, and Jim (as we’ll call him here), was a bit anxious about the change.  When I asked him why, he said that overall they were happy with the software they’d grown to know and master all these years, but “it’s not in the cloud, and everyone says we need to be in the cloud, so we’re changing” (to a web-based system).

Fast forward to last week when Jim and I caught up and he’s now looking to change back.  “The new system is sleek and cool, and it’s nice that it’s in the cloud, but it just doesn’t do some of the things that we need, and even after all the work we put into migration, we’ve decided to switch back.  Can you help us?” he asked me.

Windows 7 Reached End of Life - What Now?

On January 14, 2020, Microsoft Windows 7 reached end of life.  What does this mean?  Microsoft is no longer providing technical support, software patches, or security updates for Windows 7.  If your firm is still running on Windows 7, you are probably questioning – what do I do now?  Windows 7 will still work, however, it is strongly recommended to update your systems to the latest software, such as Windows 10, as soon as possible.

Your Business May Be at Risk of a Ransomware Attack

“The attack starts, innocently enough, with an email. But when someone clicks the link inside, hackers quickly take over.”  Once a cybercriminal is in your network, they start demanding a ransom.  Immediately, questions arise: What exactly is ransomware?  What should we do now?  Why were we targeted?  How could we have prevented this?

Ransomware attacks are on the rise and cybercriminals have increasingly started to target all types of businesses, no matter their size.  Your business is a target and increased discussion about your business’s IT security can help prevent an attack.
