Join Blue Range Technology to learn how to protect your association's technology from cyber crime.
Cyber Security, simply stated, is the measures taken to protect a computer or computer systems against unauthorized access or attack. Today's technology makes it easier than ever for hackers to gain access to your data and sensitive information. Attacks can come in all shapes and sizes, from stealing your personal information to asking for financial ransom. Because attacks can be immensely damaging to an Association's budget and reputation, you need to be protected.
The importance and function of cybersecurity involves protecting information and systems from major cyber threats. These cyber threats take many forms like malware, ransomware and phishing to name a few. To better explain, ransomware is malware in which the attacker encrypts the victim's data and demands a financial payment for the decryption key. Ransomware spreads through email attachments, infects programs, and compromises websites. Your server access, personal information, financial records and social security records could all be held hostage. Hackers demand a financial ransom payment in exchange for a private key to regain access to your data. If the ransom is not paid, the key will be destroyed and the data will be lost forever, publicly released, or the ransom payment will increase. It can be spread through e-mail attachments, and can infect programs and compromise websites. The personal information of your clients and your staff are all at risk for an attack. It is important to understand that most single antivirus solutions and end-point solutions WON'T fully protect against these attacks.. A multi-layered approach to security consisting of awareness, layers of cyber security solutions and training is your best line of defense.
