Data Security is Essential for Business in the Digital Age
Clare Computer Solutions (CCS) believes in utilizing 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. “IT everywhere” also means that there is a stronger need more than ever to safeguard IT everywhere. For the first time since 2012, the majority of corporate boards now report that they are actively addressing cybersecurity.Cyber espionage shows no sign of abating in the aftermath of the Office of Personnel Management breach, Target breach and Sony Pictures hack. Cyber attackers continue to cause damage to companies.
Ransomware alone has seen a 165% increase in 2015. 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, and Locky), 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. Forbes, the business magazine, and online news source reported that Locky malware was infecting as many as 100,000 PCs a day around the world, with a demand that users pay a ransom in Bitcoin to unlock their files.
