New Year’s Resolution: Avoid being low-hanging fruit for cybercriminals.
The easiest targets are businesses that do not invest in proper cyber security, employee training, up-to-date technology, and an industry leading cyber policy. In November, cybercriminals successfully besieged an IT company in Wisconsin through a ransomware attack and gained unauthorized access to more than 100 nursing homes across the United States.

In turn, this attack put many patients at severe health risk.
