Earlier, Platinum Data Recovery, a distinguished data recovery service provider, noticed a sudden increase in the number of cyberattacks that resulted in the loss of critical business data. To deal with the increasing number of cyber attacks, the company has now shared some important cyber hygiene tips for businesses to protect their data.
Cybercriminals always take advantage of adverse conditions and since the outbreak of this pandemic, there has been an increase in reports of cybercriminals using the COVID-19 in phishing campaigns and malware scams. A data recovery engineer at Platinum Data Recovery said, “Company employees are always the first target of cybercriminals to fulfill their malicious intentions. Recently, there was an alarming increase in COVID-19 related phishing attacks. We received many cases of data loss where the user received an e-mail or text message prompting them to click an embedded link. Most people become a victim of these tricks that result in cybercriminals getting access to their login credentials for corporate emails, as well as personal and client data. In the worst cases, the malicious actors hack the company’s system and infected it with Ransomware that locks users out of their device. So, to avoid becoming a victim of cyberattacks, it is crucial to maintain proper cyber hygiene through COVID-19 and beyond. Companies should perform regular risk assessments and increase awareness among employees by providing cyber hygiene training.”
Platinum Data Recovery is a full-service data recovery company specializing in recovering lost, deleted, corrupted, or virus-infected data. Experts at Platinum Data Recovery suggest business employees keep updating their devices – from personal and office computers to mobile and servers. Installing updates is crucial to protect the device against cyber-attacks. The company’s cyber hygiene policy should also include a control access management plan in which workers get access only to the essential data that they need to do their job. Employees working remotely also need endpoint protection and should be encouraged to work through a Virtual Private Network (VPN). In addition to all these measures, make sure to maintain regular backups at multiple devices to avoid data loss.
