Why Most Companies Get Hacked, And Some Others Don’t
The global pandemic has drastically changed the business landscape. While businesses were in a rush to adapt to keep their doors open, cybersecurity was often just an afterthought, and now we are more vulnerable than ever.
In 2021, we saw some of the most significant cyberattacks in recent history appear in the news. The truth is that cyberattacks have increased 600% just since the beginning of the pandemic. This has left us wondering: How? Why?
While it’s hard to directly connect these hacks to the pandemic, its safe to say that the pandemic hasn’t slowed down these bad actors in the slightest. Hackers have been working overtime since the beginning of the pandemic and have been finding vulnerabilities in numerous software applications before patches can be rolled out.
No longer does being proactive just mean, “I will update my software when its available”. It’s crucial to have multiple layers to your cybersecurity including things such as: good password practices, enabling MFA on all accounts, keeping up-to-date and secure data backups, etc.
We’ve been looking deeper into these recent hacks and came to this conclusion: In this “new age” of highly aggressive hackers, it’s imperative that we understand:
- How and why the hackers are succeeding.
- How some businesses are stopping these attacks or mitigating their impact.
- What are today’s accepted best practices and new ways of thinking for moving forward.
