computer_safeIf you think your business is too small for data breaches or hacking, think again! Cyber Criminals use scripts or automated attacks for any company or employee that may be vulnerable and easily accessed. If you work on a computer and do not follow well-defined procedures, then your company may be at risk.

Take for example the town of Orange Park, Florida. Just recently in the news, the town of Orange Park had money stolen from their bank account after the town’s computer system was hacked. The hackers were able to steal approximately $491,000 from their account and transferred the funds into another account within less than 30 minutes.

By hacking into an employee’s email account and sending a virus-infected attachment to key personnel, the hackers were able to gain access to the bank account. Luckily the cyber-attack was caught in time and the town was able to reverse the transaction. But other companies are not so lucky.

But this type of cybercrime happens more than reported. Too often companies place internet security or policies lower on their priority list and therefore put their data at risk for an attack.
