Combatting Ransomware in Critical Infrastructure

Jun 14, 2022 9:00:00 AM

GroupSense CEO Kurtis Minder presented at last week's Colorado Airport Operators Association (CAOA) Spring Conference in Grand Junction, CO. As part of our nation's critical infrastructure, the aviation industry is prone to ransomware and cyber attacks, just like utilities, state governments, and schools. Members of the CAOA have the opportunity to take action against ransomware in their industry by taking a few small steps.

During his presentation, Kurtis highlighted actions each person can take to make organizations more resilient:

  • Use a password manager. Password managers generate unique, strong passwords that are saved in an account. This increases security on all of your accounts and makes it more difficult for hackers to crack your passwords.
  • Enable multi-factor authentication. Multi-factor authentication requires a combination of confirmations to enter an account; usually something you know, like a password, and something you have, like a biometric or your cell phone. Enable this on any accounts that have the feature.
  • Patch and update. Once updates are available, install them. This keeps your systems resilient to exploits and attacks.
  • Participate in security trainings. We know— no one likes trainings. Taking part will help you identify phishing emails, insider threat, and more.

While that doesn't complete the list of actions you can take to protect our critical infrastructure,  every action counts. If you want more tips on how to protect your data, download our guide below.
