We’ve attended multiple security webinars over the past several weeks. It is unbelievable how the numbers of attacks have increased over the past 6 months relating to malware/ransomware attempts, attacks, and their profits. We would like to share that the most common way the attacks are happening is via email. There are ~300 million hits of emails which are attacks, or attempted attacks, each day. These emails are in the form of “Help me with this info I need”, “Here’s an unpaid invoice”, and even in the form of an attached Word or Excel document. The take away from this is simply don’t open an email or attachment that you aren’t expecting. Reach out to the sender via phone or text to verify anything that seems odd.
