Virtual IT Shows Clients How To Protect Their Data From Cybercriminals

Keeping up with the latest cybercrime incidents and ransomware attacks can be overwhelming for anyone, but when you own or work for a business, it makes cybersecurity awareness even more vital. This is where Virtual IT comes in.

What would you do today if your small to medium-sized business (SMB) was infected by ransomware and compromised by cybercriminals?

Are you sure you are prepared for an incident like this? Many SMBs assume they will never be the target of a cyberattack, but that is simply not true. If there is money to be made, a cybercriminal will attack any and all businesses — no matter the size.

That’s why Virtual IT trains clients and their employees to recognize and report all types of cybercrime threats they may encounter. This can include phishing emails, spam phone calls, and URL links that they do not recognize.

Have You Heard Of This Cybercrime Scam?

One of the most common cybercrime attacks our clients tell us about is the Apple gift card scam.

This scam usually involves a cybercriminal calling an employee posing as a director or manager of their organization and asking them to buy an Apple gift card for the business. The cybercriminal then asks for the code on the back of the gift card and proceeds to buy whatever they want with the money.

One customer of ours had this happen to six different employees in recent months alone. As a result, we’ve augmented our cybersecurity training programs to include info on how to spot gift card scams, which has helped to reduce the risk for our clients.

How You Can Take Advantage Of Cybersecurity Training

Cybersecurity training is available to all of our clients. When you go through the training, we can personalize it to whatever is best for your business.

This training will ensure you and your team stay up to date on the most recent cybercrime attacks and cybersecurity best practices. Remember, one breach in your business can cost you tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention the subsequent downtime and loss in productivity.
