Cyber Security and the War on Ukraine

With the recent media coverage, it is time to have your Cyber Security Maturity assessed.

You may have heard in the news that US President Joe Biden has urged private companies and organisations in the US to “lock their digital doors”, claiming that intelligence indicates Russia is planning a cyber-attack on Ukraine’s allies.

This pending threat has highlighted gaps in the security posture of many private businesses – not to mention the recent Log4j vulnerability. High profile threats on cyber security are escalating.

The first step to best protect your business is education. Do your employees know what a scam looks like?

There are 3 main types of scams:

Ransomware Scams

Ransomware scams use a type of malware that blocks or limits access to your computer or files, and demands a ransom be paid in order for them to be unlocked.

Remote Access Scams

Remote Access Scams (also known as technical support scams), usually involve scammers contacting people via phone, to gain access to their computers in order to steal funds.

Phishing Scams

Phishing attacks involve fraudulent communication, usually via email, appearing to come from a trusted source. The goal of these attacks is to steal sensitive data like credit card and login information and install malware on a victim’s machine.
