The Growing Threat of Cyber Attacks

There’s no doubt you've heard about Ransomware attacks. Unfortunately, stories of these cyberattacks dominate the news. Ransomware is a digital form of extortion. The attackers infect an organization's computers, encrypting them, so the machines are unusable unless the owners pay the attackers Ransomware, usually in digital currency (e.g., Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.). Malicious tactics include pressuring victims for payment by threatening to release stolen data if they refuse to pay and publicly naming and shaming victims as secondary forms of extortion. The monetary value of ransom can be considerable, with some demands exceeding USD $1 million. As a result, ransomware incidents have become more destructive. Malicious actors also expand on a successful attack, target critical information, and propagate Ransomware across entire networks. While Ransomware is the latest scourge to affect organizations of all sizes but is not the only one, data Loss from insiders can also be a concern. In addition, attacks from inside the organization (e.g., disgruntled employees) can be as destructive.

Small Businesses are Not Immune from Cyber Attack

When an organization falls victim to a cyber-attack, the damages will vary depending on the systems and information stored and processed. Websites, as the primary external face of your business, are highly vulnerable.

Any owner of an eCommerce website that finds itself compromised could lose access to customer data and orders and access to the website itself. This downtime would result in a severe loss of sales, but the attackers could also steal sensitive customer information, violating PCI requirements and most states’ privacy laws.

Cyberattacks result in lost sales but open your organization to potential regulatory and legal liability.

In the worst and most likely scenario, your  systems will remain locked even if you pay the ransom, and the attackers will never return the information.

The Risks!

The public now fully realizes the threat of ransomware attacks following the devastating WannaCry attacks in 2017 and, more recently, the Colonial Pipeline attack in June 2021. To make matters worse, former CEO of Cisco Systems, John Chambers, expected that companies across the U.S. will see over 65,000 ransomware attacks throughout 2021. While many cyberattacks reported in the news targeted larger companies like McDonald’s and JBS, small local businesses are in danger. A recent survey conducted by Infrascale in 2020 has revealed that over 45 percent of small & medium businesses (SMBs) have been victims of ransomware attacks. Additionally, with about 30 percent of the surveyed SMBs claiming that they don’t have enough time to explore ransomware solutions, it’s almost inevitable that attackers will target these businesses.

The Three Rs “Readiness, Response, and Recovery” Readiness is Doing the Right Things Before an Attack!

Cyberattacks are preventable. With proper planning, You can protect your website and business against cyberattacks. What you should do:

  1. Interim or Part-time Chief Information Security Officer (CISO): Engage a part-time and interim CISO to develop necessary cybersecurity strategies and budgets. These services can include risk assessment,
  2. Cybersecurity Risk Assessment: perform a risk assessment across your systems, networks, and applications. Make sure your strategies are healthy and ready for known challenges.
  3. Vulnerability Assessment: Scan your systems and networks to inventory your plans and determine if they have any known weaknesses.
  4. Vulnerability Remediation: Remediate these vulnerabilities immediately by implementing necessary patches and upgrades to your PCs, laptops, mobile devices, and servers. Timely patching is the best way to avoid successful attacks.
  5. Endpoint protection platform: deploy a credible endpoint protection platform, which could be as simple as basic anti-virus, but this is not usually enough. A quality EDR solution, while somewhat more expensive, provides overall better protection. Coupled with a SPAM filter on your email system, this can provide significantly greater protection than Anti-virus alone.
    We can help you select the proper technology that meets your needs and budget.
  6. Network Segmentation: Higher risk devices like printers, surveillance cameras, consumer-grade network appliances (IoT) pose a risk to your network. Segregate these devices behind a separate network to minimize the threat from attackers. Upgrade to a commercial-grade router and firewall to create a more secure and segmented network.
  7. Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery: Encrypted Cloud Backup for all systems is a great way to ensure resilience against cyber and Ransomware attacks.
  8. Security Awareness Training: Train your employees to avoid cybersecurity risks and to look for cybersecurity risks.

Secure Offline Website Backup

Protect Your Most Important Internet Facing Asset.

In the modern-day, when even large-scale corporations can fall victim to a cyber-attack, a website can only be fully protected and recoverable when a backup is stored entirely offline. Therefore, in addition to our daily website backups, eNet offers secure offline backups for your website for added peace of mind. These regularly scheduled backups are stored offline and on-site in a fireproof enclosure, inaccessible to any network or unauthorized party.

Protect Your Website from third-party hosting failures or cyberattacks with an offline backup. Offline backups ensure your website is fully recoverable and ready to transfer to a new hosting provider with little to no downtime.

Why just secure your website? There is probably another system that needs protection. To meet his need, we also offer a similar service using secure cloud storage that supports your website and all your systems (Laptops, PCs, Macs, and Servers). You are in control. Our approach goes beyond encryption and simple backups and does not require sophisticated and expensive hardware. The solution provides exponential information protection at the device, user, and storage level. Keeping your most important information under control and resilient from attack.

  • Ransomware Protection – Multi-level protection from sensitive data loss, including IP, as the digital transformation progresses
  • Hybrid Cloud Resilience – Move beyond on-prem storage to enhance data loss protection and restoration from attack & failure but maintain universal access. If there is an Internet connection, you have access to your data.
  • Threat Management – Block external and internal threats to blunt data exfiltration from attacks on user-sensitive information.

Response and Recovery

How You Respond to A Cyberattack Makes all the Difference

In the case of a ransomware attack, when your systems are locked up, you have two choices, restore from backup, or pay the ransom. If you have done the right things, vulnerability management, secure backups, your recovery should be short with little business interruption. However, if you experience a successful attack, eNet and its service partner 436 Research can help your recovery. We can:

  • Ransom Payments. Help you pay the Ransom. In some countries this may even be illegal. eNet has an active cryptocurrency wallet. We will purchase the requisite amount of cryptocurrency to meet the ransom demands without markup. Our costs will be your costs.
    Note: Paying a ransom is risky. There is no guarantee the attackers will restore your systems or not sell your information on the black market. Therefore, adequate preparation for cyber-attack is a critical and better strategy.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” – Benjamin Franklin

  • System Restoration. If you backed up your systems using our service, we could restore those systems in most cases to pre-attack status.
  • System Hardening. Once we recover your systems, we can help you by:
    • Root Cause Analysis. Using digital forensics, we can help you understand how the attack occurred.
    • Business Readiness. Work with you using the Readiness techniques already described above to protect against future attacks.

Perimeter, Network vs. Data Security

Security professionals historically focused on protecting the network as a strong perimeter was an indicator of the security posture or strength of an organization’s cybersecurity defenses. As a result, network perimeters are highly hardened and difficult to crack. However, cybercriminals look for the easiest path to launch an attack.

In general, people are the weakest link in any defense, and cyber-criminals take advantage of this. The increase in SPAM containing malware is an example of this trend. Another change caused by the pandemic is the movement of staff out of the office.

Organizations need to address these operational business changes and move their security focus from the perimeter and internal networks to support a more mobile workforce.

Rethink Your Approach

Protect Data and Not Systems! Zero Trust!

Zero-Trust implies there are no secure areas of your network. Because of a mobile workforce, the rise in malicious SPAM, you need to protect data at rest and in motion. Offsite backup is a good start but only works for certain information assets. Cloud solutions provide flexibility, control, and safety.

Address Cybersecurity for your Website and other Important Systems!

Organizations need a flexible solution that addresses the multi-dimensional problem of data security that:

  • Renders stored data useless to attackers
  • Prevents against external and insider threats
  • Adds data resilience and easy storage restoration
  • Uses a bring-your-own-storage model, ensuring your important information remains under your control.
  • Provides fine-grained administrative control so you can decide who has access to what
  • Provides easy Deployment and a transparent intuitive user interface
  • Uses the highest levels of encryption, and a process makes the information useless to attackers.
