This holiday season will be like no other with the continued use of remote work, greater online sales, third-party sourcing from across the globe, and employees taking much-needed time off. Cyber criminals will take advantage of these seasonal distractions to steal sensitive data, hold it for ransom, or use you as a stepping-stone to more lucrative victims. Hackers often strike when businesses let their guard down, gaining access to networks but laying low to strike later. Once centered on key shopping days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, cyber attacks are now extending across all of November and December and into the new year, making comprehensive vigilance and 24/7 visibility even more challenging. It’s time to fight back against cyber criminals with defense-in-depth resiliency for proactive protection at this crucial time of year.
Here’s a list of holiday season threats and best practices to defend against them:
‘Tis the season to be wary of cyber crime, as hackers don’t just attack larger enterprises. Cyber criminals also use advanced persistent threats (APTs) to target MSPs and mid-sized businesses. Adversaries often target mid-sized businesses because they are supply chain partners of larger firms or may have security gaps that are easy to exploit. Hackers are continually reinventing their tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) to catch you off guard and evade detection, so it’s important to stay on top of vulnerabilities and real-world attacks. And as you look towards the future, ensure cybersecurity is a year-round priority.
