Take Action to Protect Trade Secrets from Cybercriminals Now, Because They’re on the Hunt
Hackers don’t just want your company’s data to pilfer payment card information, steal identities, or commit financial crimes – they also want your company’s secrets. When you’re considering what kind of data you need to protect, put your company’s secrets high on the list because there’s always someone who is ready to buy them on the Dark Web. By beefing up your security to protect trade secrets from cybercriminals now, you can avoid a costly breach later.
Corporate secrets are currency
Recently, there has been a spate of state-based hacking efforts to capture COVID-19 treatment and research data. UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), the Canadian Communication Security Establishment (CSE), the United States Department for Homeland Security (DHS) Cyber-security Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the US National Security Agency (NSA) banded together to issue a rare warning to the medical community and cybersecurity experts that suspected Russian hackers were behind the effort. The target? COVID-19 vaccine research data.
While everyone wants to get their hands on COVID-19 related data right now, bad actors working as state-sponsored or corporate-sponsored hacking groups aren’t a new development. But with breach risk rising, you may be more worried about protecting your systems than protecting your proprietary information like formulas or research results. Don’t make that mistake – your corporation’s trade secrets are valuable and everything from employee errors to malicious insiders is putting them in danger.
Here’s how to protect yours
Cybercriminals are often using a tried and true favorite to snatch corporate data – ransomware. The most common vehicle of delivery for ransomware is a phishing email. All it takes is one dodgy phishing email making it past your security and into an employee’s inbox, and the biggest cybersecurity threat of 2020 has arrived, putting your company one click away from a cybersecurity catastrophe.
