    Data Encryption Technology 

    In today’s environment, the protection of sensitive data is imperative. Government and corporate compliance mandates are stiffening. HIPAA HITECH regulations now call for significant fines when personal health information is exposed, as well as public notification of such breaches. To protect sensitive data, encryption is the most effective way to achieve security. If data cannot be viewed then no breach can occur.

  • Security and Risk Cyber Crime & Ransomware Protection

    Exposure to Cyber Crime and Ransomware 

    ransomwareAll organizations are susceptible to becoming the next victim of a cyber criminal.  Every week new security vulnerabilities are exploited where malicious software can gain access to your systems, attacking critical business data, holding it hostage or exploiting the data.  No organization is immune to these attacks.  Ransomware will typically encrypt the actual data, master file system and/or entire hard drives. Once encrypted, the user must pay the ransom to receive a decryption key to regain access to their data. And if not paid, the data is then locked and lost forever. 

    Cyber attacks are generally targeted at all organizations.  Malware based attacks such as WannaCry has affected over 150 countries and major corporations, encrypting data and holding it for ransom.  Other attacks utilizing remote desktop protocols (RDP), Java-based web servers, or file transfer protocol (FTP) servers such as with SamSam are used to gain access to systems. 

    More recently, cyber criminals are targeting specific industries such as State and Local governments.  In Atlanta, cyber criminals took the government's data hostage (read about Atlanta Held Hostage).  In Baltimore, their 911 emergency dispatch system was attacked taking the system offline and endangering the community (read about Baltimore Ransomware Nightmare).
