Most businesses have some level of cybersecurity on their individual computers and servers. Many routers, however, are still vulnerable to malware attacks because of unsecure configurations. Cybercriminals can exploit these points of entry into your network by changing DNS settings and loading malware.
Cybercriminals continue to improve their targeting methods, and your company may be vulnerable. Through “social engineering” - a form of psychological manipulation - cybercriminals seek to trick people into opening an infected email. The newest ransomware threats are tailored to target employees in specific types of roles. Just as with other ransomware, the goal of these methods is to lock down your critical files until you pay the attacker to free your data.
