The U.S. suffered 65,000 ransomware attacks in 2020 and sadly, small businesses and non-profits bore the brunt of those attacks.
Small businesses and non-profits are attractive targets because they have personally identifiable information (PII) that cybercriminals want, and typically lack the security infrastructure of larger businesses. Recent reports estimate 51% of small businesses don’t have any resources for cyber security and roughly 60% of small companies go out of business within six months of falling victim to a data breach or ransomware attack.
The good news is there are some key actions your organization can take to help mitigate your risks and protect your data and customers.
At CyberJedi, LLC, we’re a small minority-owned business and have chosen to dedicate our services to other small businesses and non-profits to assist them with defending themselves against data breaches and ransomware attacks.
October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month and we’re inviting you to join us for an informative session where we will share valuable knowledge to help attendees:
- Understand the basics of ransomware and why attacks are increasing
- Identify ways your business or non-profit may be vulnerable & how to mitigate risks
- Secure your data by implementing practical safeguards and policies
Participants will learn about a variety of free resources available to to assist them in creating a basic cybersecurity strategy and plan of action to appropriately respond to a cyber incident.
