In the current environment with the workforce spread all over security has become a core concern for organizations. ICON’s senior consultants can help you plan and navigate this new world by ensuring your team is secure regardless of where they are working.

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. These cyberattacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes. Implementing effective cybersecurity measures is particularly challenging today because there are more devices than people, and attackers are becoming more innovative.

Ransomware is the most profitable type of malware in history. In the past, attackers primarily tried to steal information and maintain long-term access to their victims’ systems and resources. They typically did not deny access to systems or destroy data. Ransomware has changed the game from stealthy access to extortion. In a ransomware attack, victims pay attackers directly to recover their files. The emergence of anonymous currencies such as Bitcoin and Ripple has meant that attackers can profit easily and with relatively low risk. This makes attacks highly lucrative and funds the development of the next generation of ransomware. As a result, ransomware is evolving at an alarming rate.

Let ICON Technical Solutions help guide you to the correct solutions to protect your business from these threats.
