The White House is warning about the potential of increased cyberattacks against the United States. In response, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the FBI’s Cyber Division encourage organizations of all sizes, large and small, to be vigilant against malicious cyber activity and take proactive measures now to mitigate risk.
Cybercriminals globally are looking to profit from the Russia-Ukraine conflict, with small to mid-size businesses and organizations among the most vulnerable. According to a recent Cost of Cybercrime Study (Accenture), 43% of cyberattacks are aimed at small businesses, especially those in the legal, insurance, retail, financial, healthcare, government and education sectors.
What should you do to avoid falling victim to a costly cybercrime?
The best way to defend against a cyberattack is to take preventive steps – incidents are less likely to happen, and they can be less damaging if they do happen.
