The cybersecurity landscape is constantly changing and evolving, with new threats appearing every day. In March 2023, Yellow Pages Canada reportedly fell victim to a Black Basta Ransomware attack, where criminals siphoned sensitive data from the company’s servers. The same month, Fincantieri Marine Group (FMG) also experienced a ransomware attack, which caused their IT staff to work in overdrive to recover the IT assets. In April, the BumbleBee malware was seen spreading via Google Ads, software ads, and SEO poisoning.
The consequences of a cyber attack can be devastating for any company, regardless of size. It is therefore vital for companies to take steps to ensure the security of their data and systems. It is important to keep software and systems up-to-date, implement a robust security policy, and ensure that employees receive regular security training. Additionally, companies should consider investing in cyber insurance to provide financial protection in the event of a cyber attack.
