Here at Siren Services & Solutions we put security first! We know that the IT world is full of risk and the old status quo isn’t good enough anymore. Could security has become very popular, but cloud security is like almost everything in technology – a tradeoff. Your data is less accessible to an irrefutable loss but more accessible to being stolen. Even on a network your secrets can be accessed and misused. Unfortunately there is no utopia! Bad guys want your data and cyber criminals are lurking in the shadows and hitting small businesses every day be it for easy money, espionage or “hactivism” for social or political clout.
Siren Solutions for Ransomware
Ransomware encrypts your data so you can’t get in. Do you have a backup? If not, you have little option. Very few ransomware encryptions can be reverse hacked. Paying the ransom isn’t a guarantee because you don’t know if they will actually give up the key. If you’ve been hit by a ransomware attack and paid the ransom you’re very likely to be attacked again because they know you will pay. You may get your data back this time but your risk just increased tenfold because the sharks know you’re an easy target! This is old fashioned extortion for the modern era - just like the mafia of old, but in a much safer environment for the criminals because its all anonymous. Reducing the risk is one of our most important goals.
When ransomware first reared its ugly head there was no real protection against it. We iat Siren SS have invested in software that significantly reduces the risk. Contact us to see what we can do to keep the digital mafia off your back
When it comes to cyber security, we encourage you to be diligent. Not only do you need to be aware of the sharks lurking in the shadows outside, you have to be aware of what’s going on in your office as well.
According to the Wall Street Journal, 75% of employees steal from the company they work for. We’re not saying to distrust your employees but best practices dictate that you should be aware! Employees, even the good, honest ones, are the greatest risk to your business’ security: from clicking on a bad link permitting malware to run rampant, to accessing files they shouldn’t and downloading data, employee’s are likely your biggest weakness when it comes to cyber security. We’re here to help! Let Siren Services & Solutions take you through the steps needed to train your entire team to be security savvy!
