Ransomware victims lose billions annually. But a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity can help retailers prevent ransomware.
HOBOKEN, NJ (PRWEB) 19 januari 2022
Een NYC-gebied retail managed services provider (MSP) shares five steps for retailers to prevent ransomware in a new article on the eMazzanti Technologies website. The informative article first asserts that every organization is a target for ransomware.
The author then urges retailers to conduct penetration testing to identify weaknesses in their cyber-defense strategies. He also encourages them to strengthen their email defenses, the primary attack method for cyber-criminals, and to implement geo blocking. He concludes by discussing the need to automate key cybersecurity tasks and to conduct regular risk assessments.
“Ransomware victims lose billions annually,” stated Almi Dumi, CISO, eMazzanti Technologies. “But a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity can help retailers prevent ransomware.”
Hieronder volgen enkele fragmenten uit het artikel: "Stappen om ransomware te voorkomen gedeeld door vooraanstaande retail-MSP. '
Every Organization a Target
“Every eleven seconds, ransomware hits a target. Attacks against big names like Colonial Pipeline, JBS Foods and the NBA made the news in 2021. But threat actors increasingly turn their attention to small businesses, in part because they often lack adequate cybersecurity controls.”
Conduct Penetration Testing
“One of the best defenses against bad actors involves thinking like one. Cybercriminals search for cracks in your defenses, vulnerabilities in the system. You should, too. For instance, proactive organizations conduct penetration tests to simulate cyber attacks and uncover weaknesses.”
Strengthen Email Fortifications
“With all the communication methods at our fingertips, email still dominates business communication. Consequently, email remains the primary attack method for cyber criminals. Build essential cybersecurity awareness with regular security training for employees. Supplement employee training with automated encryption and email filtering.”
Restrict Access with Geo Blocking
"Geoblokkering allows organizations to block access from specific countries, thus helping to prevent foreign hackers from accessing business systems. For instance, if a company has no customers in Russia, it may choose to block internet connections from Russian sources. Firewall settings or geo-based policies in Microsoft 365 make this possible.”
