Human-operated ransomware is different to the cyberattacks that we usually hear about. They’re incredibly sophisticated and inherently difficult to spot.
As the name suggests, they require a human touch: invaders infiltrate, watch for patterns, highlight weak points – and then strike many months, or even years, later. By which point the attackers will know more about you and your business than you do.
And as they move laterally across your business, they can (and will) cause immeasurable damage as they go. Microsoft’s Principle Cybersecurity Consultant, Jim Moeller, warns that “we’re facing one of the greatest threats to cybersecurity, ever seen.” And that should’t be taken lightly.
We don’t like to be pushy. But when it comes to something as serious as this, we are…a bit. It’s so important to have a security plan in place. If you do, implement it. And if you don’t, get in touch! This is the party you can never be too early to.
