If It Can Happen to Sony, It Can Happen to You
Following up on the recent breach at Sony; this article states that 2014 was labelled as “The Year if the Breach”. The other thing that this article is pointing out, you don’t have to be a mega-corporation to get breached, you can be a small business, you can be a small start-up, it doesn’t matter. You can be targeted, your company may or may not contain valuable information, that is valued by the attacker.
Security experts are now saying there are only two types of companies left in the U.S.: Those that have been hacked, and those that don’t yet know they’ve been hacked. And although cybersecurity is being forced to the forefront of national consciousness, we still are not seeing the urgency needed to make a difference.
There is no more time to wait on the issue of cybersecurity. Government agencies and corporations alike must become both educated and absolutely determined to stop cybercrime now. Neither can afford mediocre approaches to security and customers (whether citizens, in the case of government; or paying clients, in the case of corporations) must demand better. Organizations must have the right plans and the right technologies in place to deal with the threats we’ve seen do so much damage in 2014, and the threats we know are on the way in 2015.
It is important to keep you guard up, maintain safe systems, and keep your organization secure. Remember that 556 Forensics can assist you in keeping you and your organization safe.
