“WannaCry” Reminds Companies of Security Needs

Last Friday, the “WannaCry” (also known as WannaCrypt) cyber-attack infected more than 200,000 computers in 150 countries and impacted telephone companies, major healthcare systems, airlines, banks and personal computers across the globe. The malicious software blocked customers from their data unless they paid a ransom. Microsoft is taking steps to address the issue with its customers, as you can read here.

In a world where ransomware and security breaches occur daily, it’s hard for businesses to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to network security. Events like last weekend’s attack are reminders of that reality. Fortunately, Ritter Communications can partner with you to help address your company’s security needs.

There are a wide variety of approaches a company can take when it comes to data protection. Some businesses require the highest level of security possible to detect and prevent any type of intrusion. For example, a medical facility that handles HIPAA-compliant data can be subject to fines if their network is breached, and such financial penalties are just another layer to the headache caused by attacks.

On the other end of the spectrum, some businesses take a more reactive approach to their security. Knowing that security breaches sometimes occur, they make sure they have the tools necessary to combat attacks when they take place and restore their data in a timely manner.

Many business owners don’t even know where they’re exposed. That leaves them with a couple of options when it comes to protecting their network. One is to pay a full-time security expert, an endeavor that can bring significant costs. Another option is to leverage Ritter’s commitment to security by partnering with us to develop a customized strategy that best fits your business.  No matter what your company needs, we’ll work with you to identify an optimal solution.
