Atlantic Data Forensics NMTC 3 Magic Things March 2021
On March 04, 2021, Brian Dykstra, CEO of Atlantic Data Forensics, Inc., with over 25 years’ experience in investigations, computer forensics, incident response, and secure network architecture and his company, an internationally recognized company handling hundreds of forensic investigations and data breaches each year for clients in the US, presented the most valuable tips for us to stay safe in the cyber world.
The basis for his presentation centered around Cyber Crime- one of the greatest threats to every business, and the pandemic has increased the threat 400% as noted recently by the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center- IC(3). The impacts to the financial health of the company, reputation, and ability to operate can be catastrophic if not handled well from the time of the incident identification. Brian reviewed some recent cases during the pandemic that employers have faced and how they handled the situation.
His solution is: “Be Proactive, Prepare For The New Threats”
- Ransomware is an Evolving Threat that Now Exploits the New Normal Brought on by the COVID-19 Pandemic
- Organizations with Newly Remote Workers are at Heightened Risk
- Enterprises can Deploy “Three Magic Things,” which will Significantly Reduce Their Risk of a Cyber Incident at Little to No Cost
