Worried about cyber-attacks, Microsoft security and your insurance? You are not alone…
[WEBINAR alert] It seems like every other day another cyber-attack or privacy breach is making headlines. CBC News just broke news about a ‘definite uptick’ in ransomware attacks hitting Canadian organizations. Here’s what happened:
“When a Toronto dentist learned last week that his office’s computer network had been attacked with ransomware, it felt like a “violation.” “It was terrible,” he said. “My wife was even nervous about sleeping at home.” Staff were locked out of digital files for at least a day and had to take notes on paper. The dentist said files on 19 out of the clinic’s 22 computers became encrypted.”1
“A message left on the infected machines read “Ryuk,” identifying the ransomware as the same strain that recently hit three Ontario hospitals and health-care facilities in Alabama and Australia. “We were really lucky,” the Toronto dentist said. “At least we had a good backup.”2
“Ransomware typically encrypts files, with attackers demanding a digital currency payment from victims in order to release the data. Ryuk, a form of ransomware first reported in 2018, allows hackers to view a computer’s files and gather information for several weeks, unbeknownst to its victims.”31,2,3 CBC News: ‘Definite uptick’: Global wave of ransomware attacks hitting Canadian organizations
