A CYBER SECURITY REMINDER -- THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK
Billions of people were affected by data breaches and cyberattacks in 2018 with losses surpassing tens of millions of dollars, according to global digital security firm Positive Technologies. The sheer volume of major companies – Marriott, Dunkin’, Under Armour, among others – hit by data breaches indicate incidents are on the rise.
In today’s business climate, cybercriminals aggressively target not only large companies but also small businesses with ever-increasingly sophisticated attacks. Spoofed emails, malicious software and online social networks to obtain login credentials to businesses’ accounts, transfer funds from the accounts and steal private information are on the rise.
