Kurtis Minder, GroupSense CEO, started 2022 off on the right foot with a feature on Infosecurity. He shared his top five cybersecurity tools that companies need to implement right now. While these items may be considered “cybersecurity 101,” you’d be surprised how many organizations don’t have these measures in place. Below is a snippet from the article.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has reported a 400% increase in cyber-attacks. What’s more, as of July 31 2021, the FBI has reported a 62% increase in reported ransomware incidents since the beginning of the year as compared to 2020. That’s only data on what’s actually reported. There are a lot of attacks that go unreported each year, making these percentages even higher.
At GroupSense, we respond to many ransomware attacks (and other cyber-threats) and have taken inventory of how threat actors gain access to each of our victim clients. The attacks can be distilled down to a list of basic cyber-hygiene items. I’ve narrowed down this list to the top five items companies should address to avoid getting hit by a cyber-attack.
