Attacks on data processors and other essential service providers have escalated as cybercriminals look for big data scores and information that facilitates more cybercrimes.
This seemingly small attack could pack big consequences. Ransomware gangs have been increasingly focused on hitting strategic targets that service major clients.
Attacks that strike at government and infrastructure targets frequently use ransomware to get the job done, and no matter how big or small, no organization is safe.
Cyberattacks that focus on obtaining corporate or business data are increasingly troubling because each one adds more sensitive data to the dark web that can be used against other businesses.
Clients expect a high level of information security from companies that they trust with their personal and financial information, and may stop doing business with companies that fail to protect it.
