Discover How Cyber Security Can Protect Your Network during COVID-19

The Importance of Cyber Security

Cyber security has become one of the most critical aspects of data security. Data security is especially relevant today because this school year has gotten off to a strange start. From having to make changes to classrooms regarding COVID-19, and most classes starting out virtually. What if I told you there’s still more that could go wrong…well now that sounds terrifying.

Schools are currently being targeted and hit by ransomware. Cyber security has become a very important aspect of technology in today’s world.The last thing that a school district needs is to be worried about the staff and student’s data security. This is happening because school districts are exposed and do not have time to focus on cyber security plans. After all, they are currently concentrating on many other things to protect their students and return to the classroom safely.

Ransomware Continues to Wreak Havoc

Ransomware is  “malware that requires the victim to pay a ransom to access encrypted files” (Merriam-Webster).

Merriam-Webster

I’m sure you’ve heard the term ransomware countless times this past year alone. Over the past couple of years, ransomware has continued to evolve. If the trend continues, ransomware will not be going away anytime soon; in fact, it appears that it is beginning to become more frequent. Ransomware began as a threat to consumers. The idea was to trick people into paying fines that were not real and purchase infected equipment.

These days ransomware attacks are “becoming more targetedsophisticated and costly, even as the overall frequency of attacks remains consistent” (IC3).

IC3

 Impacted in 2019 by ransomware:

  • 113 government agencies, municipalities and state governments
  • 764 healthcare providers
  • 89 universities/colleges
  • School districts with up to 1,233 individual schools were potentially impacted.

Cybersecurity must be one of the top priorities when it comes to any establishment that holds personal data. Public institutions are usually the main culprit for ransomware because there is typically a lack of funding allocated for cybersecurity.

The best way to keep this from happening to your business is to call CoreRecon. We provide security assessments for your network infrastructure. We also are an MSP, which means we can be your IT support and help educate employees on safe desktop practices. The most important thing for us is to keep your business and your data safe.

Hackers Want Your Medical Records

Many hackers consider your medical records to be low-risk, high-value targets. They can be obtained fairly easily, are sought-after on the underground cyber exchanges, and the chance of the hacker being exposed is minimal. Even though millions of medical records have been stolen in the United States recently, analysts are predicting a sharp increase in cyber-attacks on hospitals and doctors’ offices.
