What Are the Latest Cybersecurity Threats to Businesses?

Barracuda Networks, an IT security company, recently patched a vulnerability in its email software, but not until after attackers exploited the weakness by installing malware in user networks and stealing data. Unfortunately, zero-day and other vulnerabilities are common threats to today’s companies. And the average cost of a data breach is expected to soon exceed $5 million. Cyber attackers are always looking for ways to steal data or plant ransomware for financial gain, and the current threat landscape is extensive and complex. This blog will talk about trending threats and what our cybersecurity management team advises you can do to protect your company.

Vulnerabilities Pose Ongoing Threats

Significant and high-profile vulnerabilities are exposed all the time, often after attackers have exploited them by gaining access to systems and stealing data or committing some other malicious act. These kinds of attacks usually aren’t targeted. Breaches are often the result of opportunistic attackers, so every organization needs to be on guard against such vulnerabilities.

Phishing and Social Engineering Are Increasing

Phishing and social engineering are currently some of the most common threats our cybersecurity consulting experts battle. They’re also becoming more pervasive, effective, and persuasive thanks to the use of improved artificial intelligence (AI). Phishing tactics involve tricking or convincing people into clicking links, opening attachments, or downloading files that contain malicious code or software. Social engineering involves manipulating individuals into sharing sensitive or confidential information or even providing access to company systems.

Protecting Your Organization from Cyberattacks

Simply connecting to the internet puts your company at risk of being scammed or breached, and there will always be bad actors trying to exploit vulnerabilities. The right technologies can help keep criminals out, but it’s important to first understand your organization’s risks. For example, financial institutions face different risks than retail shops, so the cybersecurity management tools and tactics they choose may be different. Start with a cybersecurity risk assessment that evaluates the kind of impact a hypothetical security incident would have on your organization’s ability to fulfill its mission. The hypothetical incident could be ransomware, a data breach, a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, a multi-factor authentication (MFA) fatigue attack, or another type of attack. How would it affect your financial or operational objectives? Your answers will help you design cyber defenses to prioritize your assets and mitigate the biggest risks. Consider conducting an annual risk assessment to stay up to date on your company’s risk profile. Then update your safeguards to ensure they’re still relevant and effective for the current state of cybersecurity. In today’s hybrid work environment, it’s also important to implement a zero trust approach. This means your network won’t trust a user or a device based on location or other identifying information. Every user and device is granted limited network or system access with the lowest level of required permissions for the least amount of time.

Cybersecurity FAQ

Cybersecurity is a distinct need with considerations and risks that can change in an instant. Cybersecurity requires constant attention and if a threat arises, there’s no time to assemble a team to get up to speed. Corsica customers can get the whole package of managed services with cybersecurity to fill all the skill and resource gaps your teams face.

A managed security services provider (MSSP) is focused on security services, while a managed services provider (MSP) offers general IT services. Many companies need both kinds of services, and choosing a partner that does both ensures they have a better understanding of what your company needs. Corsica is a comprehensive service provider that is both an MSP and an MSSP. We offer cybersecurity, managed IT, or a combination of services from a single, integrated team, depending on your organization’s needs. 

Look for a partner that offers dependability, experience, a respected reputation, always-on protection, a proactive approach to security, and expertise in cybersecurity, cloud services, and digital transformation. In addition to checking company reviews and testimonials, ask companies about their experience, standards, training, certifications, and track record. Cyber security doesn’t stop at the response to an alert–there must be a team behind the cyber security team that is able to remediate and resolve the issues 24/7.

A partner like Corsica will provide specialized support to your internal staff and remove the burden of trying to find and keep security resources that may be scarce. Our teams don’t intend to replace internal teams–just provide security and IT support and fill in gaps so your teams can focus on the needs of the business. You get access to certified cybersecurity experts who are familiar with current and impending threats and can provide safeguards and resolutions.

You get the benefits of both an MSSP and MSP, and your provider can respond better to cyber threats because they understand your infrastructure. You get dependable, up-to-date security expertise in a rapidly changing threat landscape. A comprehensive provider can fill skill gaps and manage projects your teams don’t have time for. And they will essentially protect your business and keep it running efficiently by offering: 

  • 24/7/365 service
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Cost predictability
  • Quick response times 
  • Proactive system monitoring 
  • Scalability to evolve with your business
  • Access to certified professionals with ongoing training

Corsica will provide your team with access to a team of professionals including a vCIO who is your main point of contact and can connect you with the experts and technical resources you need. We build personalized client relationships with the intention of becoming an extension of your team and helping you succeed.

Our team of cybersecurity experts works to make your job easier by providing managed services for projects your team doesn’t have time or expertise for. We work as TSP partners with your IT teams to ensure compliance and protection of your business 24/7. The Corsica Technologies team collectively holds dozens of certifications to ensure we have expertise in the areas you need most.
