The Growing Threat of Ransomware: The value of your personal files and pictures caps off somewhere. But if they encrypt the back-end of your small business or corporate system and prevent you from processing payments, that has a tremendous value. And if the hacker can recognize the value of what he has, the ransom can be more dynamically set based on the content of the data.
At POWERNET America, we advocate you use an encrypted cloud backup solution of all your important documents. This way if you get hit, you can completely wipe the system, and reload those files. But make sure you only backup the important files, make sure to have a auto scan before files are uploaded.

Multi-factor Authentication: Waking up to the Elephant in the Room |
The challenges of multi-factor authentication are noted as users and industries have been slow to adopt, it’s obvious usability is an issue. A healthcare worker trying to save a patient’s life is justified in not wanting to have to open up an application on her phone to access a one-time password (OTP) that will expire in a few seconds.
For all the hassle and cost involved, though, this is one of those mandates that actually will reduce risk, rather than simply satisfy auditors. While it is no panacea, it can reduce those data breaches caused by “weak, default or stolen passwords.”#cybersecurity #powernetamerica

Study: Half of American Corporations Are Vulnerable to Hackers: While the risk to these big companies is substantial, the little guys are the ones risking the most when it comes to a lack of protection. An attack on a large corporation looks great and cultivates respect in the community. But 71 percent of cyber attacks target small businesses because they are easy targets without a security structure in place. #cybersecurity #powernetamerica #smallbusiness #startup #leadership http://ow.ly/BV2I5008Fj8
