This isn’t breaking news, but cybercriminals are after your data, and they’ll do just about anything to get it. Personal identifiable information, or PII, is a goldmine for attackers. With this info, they can steal your clients’ identities, hold it for ransom and more. To obtain this information, we’ve seen cybercriminals:
- Hack into school districts in an effort to intimidating organizations into paying their ransoms
- Increasingly target mobile devices used in sensitive areas like healthcare facilities
- Attack an entire city, Atlanta, and take down crucial services for days
Hidden Weak PointsThe traditional image of a hacker sitting in a dark room, desperately trying to break into your website’s CRM has needed an update for a while now. While cybercriminals will definitely still probe to try and find a way in, they’ve gotten much more creative when it comes to infiltrating your organization. Phishing attacks are common, deluging your employees with official-looking emails that contain corrupted links hiding malware, just waiting to be clicked on and unleashed on your network. Some criminals will dress up as service providers — think a delivery person dropping off a package — and use this as a front to sneak past your reception desk and make their way back into sensitive areas of your organization. Maybe they find an unoccupied office space and have plenty of time to break into one of your employee’s computers and install a virus. Or they might just drop a USB drive on someone’s desk, hoping they plug it into their computer as a mistake or out of curiosity, and it’s as simple as that — an infected organization. Their creativity knows no bounds. If you’re not preparing for even the wildest sounding of attack methods, then you’re doing your organization and clients a disservice.
