How Easily Your Business Can Be Hacked

Businesses encounter a variety of cyberattacks every day. Small businesses are targeted just as much as the big guys, which brings us to our point: however small or big your business is, hackers are trying to break into your IT systems. Automated tools make it simple for hackers to steal your data, your logins – or worse, hold your data to ransom. 

To highlight how simple it is for a hacker to put your business at risk, we requested a certified ethical hacker to break into three computers using different types of cyberattacks. We filmed it both as the hacker and what was happening on his victims’ machines. Go on, take a look.

With the first attack, our ethical hacker quickly encrypts data resulting in you paying a huge ransom to get it back. 

With the second attack, our ethical hacker uses a fake login portal to trick you into giving away your login details. 

Lastly, our ethical hacker reveals why it is essential to keep your software and the operating system up to date.

While business owners now understand the importance of having a web presence, many have neglected cyber security. That is why today, we have three questions for you:

  1. Do you realize how simple it is for a hacker to break into your system?
  2. Does your company have the correct blend of software, staff training and processes to protect your IT and data?
  3. If no, what are you going to do about it?
