Unfortunately, the security of the average workplace leaves a lot to be desired. The number of companies and organizations that are confronted with security incidents is still growing. Take phishing for example: hackers who pretend to be a trusted authority and try to find out your password in order to thereby breaking into your organization's system. Also attack with ransomware are making more and more victims. Company data is held hostage and encrypted by a hacker. To decrypt that data, a hefty ransom is demanded. In addition, there are still other persistent threats that keep cropping up in the workplace, such as viruses, malware and trojans.
The vulnerability of ICT in practice
A large transport and logistics company fell victim to ransomware in early February 2020. Hundreds of servers and workstations were infected and the company could do nothing but shut down all systems. Customers were no longer able to log in and deliveries suffered significant delays. The amount of damage ran into the millions. The shock was even greater when the same company became a victim of ransomware again a few months later, this time from a different origin. Once again, the company had to shut down all systems, customers couldn't log in and it took weeks to repair the damage. To make matters worse, this time the hackers had actually managed to steal data.
First aid for cybercrime
Cybercrime does not only cause direct damage: privacy-sensitive customer data that comes out on the street causes a serious loss of the trust of your customers. A successful cyber attack can also lead to sky-high GDPR fines if it turns out that your IT security did not meet the rules of the privacy law.
Of course you hope that it will never happen to your organization. But if you do have to deal with a security incident, it is important to keep an overview and to focus first on preventing further damage. Block the attack if you can, and isolate your systems and workspace. Then examine your log information to analyze the course of the attack.
Of course you don't have to face it alone. With quick and expert help, your business will be up and running again sooner. Professional first aid for cybercrime starts with a – telephone – intake of your incident by security specialists. Then a thorough analysis, and based on that advice on how to handle your incident. Furthermore, support from your technical staff, management and on-site assistance are also valuable options.
