The news stories of cyber criminals stealing personal information from large companies is almost a daily occurrence. What you don’t hear about however are the information stolen from small and medium companies.
Consider that even a small amount of stolen information is often enough for a thief to target a company. A well-crafted email containing personal information about the recipient and/or one of their clients or vendors will have a good chance of being “trusted” and opened. And if the payload is malicious, the attacker may succeed in getting malware installed on a corporate network.
At a minimum, every small and medium business should have these elements in place in their network:
- Business-class antivirus
- Business-class antimalware
- Business-class UTM firewall with Next Generation technologies
- Business-class 3rd party spam filter
- Industry standard controls over mobile devices.
