Need to Keep Your Business Safe from Cyberattacks?
Without doubt, the creation of the internet has made many new ideas possible, as well as enable the spread of knowledge and information. Unfortunately, criminals have also taken advantage of the internet to exploit and attack vulnerable individuals and organizations.
Today, cyberattacks routinely cause organizations around the world massive damage. In June, Akamai, a leading internet infrastructure company, mitigated the largest packet per second (PPS) distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack ever recorded on the Akamai platform. The attack generated 809 million packets per second (Mbps), targeting a large European bank. Akamai also reported of mitigating a DDoS attack of 1.44 Tbps in the same month.
The problem has continued to grow as people spend more and more time on the internet. More than 4.57 billion people around the world now use the internet - close to 60% of the world's total population – and the number is rapidly rising. According to Global Digital Report, the average internet user currently spends some 10 hours online every day.
In addition, as devices and wearables become increasingly connected, there’s more room than ever for vulnerabilities to be exploited. By 2022 there will be an estimated 28.5 billion networked devices and connections online—a trend that the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated.
Protecting Your Assets from Cyberattacks
Cyberattacks routinely cause organizations around the world massive damage. 2020 has seen a huge boost in cyber activity with security firm Crowdstrike finding the number of potential intrusions detected – which reaching to 41,000 intrusions identified in the first half of 2020.
Ever since the onset of COVID-19, cyberattacks have definitely ramped up. Both Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Akamai, a leader in the cyber security sector, reported record-breaking assaults on their infrastructure, although both were able to thwart these DDoS attacks. AWS noted the peak attack had been 44% larger than anything it had experienced before.
As such, it’s no wonder that companies are frantically ramping up their cybersecurity. A breach can cause loss of sales and revenue, irreparable damage to customers’ trust and the company’s brand image, service outages and or problems and theft of classified data.
Any one of these could cause significant damage and negatively impact the bottom line. But a few easy measures can help to protect your organization, including:
- Make sure your employees all have strong passwords that are regularly changed
- Backup your data in the cloud or some other place that isn't connected to your company's network, in case your network is compromise

- Secure your connectivity by using a private network with firewalls
