Zero Trust Security: What it is and why it’s importantSeptember 13, 2023
Ransomware: A serious threat to SMBsSeptember 15, 2023
Supply chain attacks are on the rise, and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are at particular risk. These attacks target the weakest link in the supply chain to gain access to an organization’s network and data.
SMBs are often targeted because they may have less sophisticated cybersecurity measures in place than larger organizations. Additionally, SMBs are more likely to have limited resources to respond to a cyber attack.
The effects of a supply chain attack on an SMB can be devastating. These attacks can lead to:
– Data breaches
– Disruption of operations
– Damage to reputation
SMBs can take steps to protect themselves from supply chain attacks, including:
– Conducting due diligence on vendors
– Implementing strong security controls
– Educating employees about cybersecurity best practices
– Having a plan in place to respond to a cyber attack
– Use multi-factor authentication (MFA) for all remote access. This will make it more difficult for attackers to gain access to your network, even if they have compromised a vendor’s credentials.
– Keep your software and systems up to date. Software updates often include security patches that can help to protect your systems from known vulnerabilities.
– Monitor your network and systems for suspicious activity. There are a number of security tools that can help you to detect and respond to cyber attacks.
– Have a backup and recovery plan in place. This will help you to minimize the damage caused by a cyber attack and get your business back up and running quickly.
If you are an SMB owner or operator, it is important to be aware of the risks posed by supply chain attacks and take steps to protect your business.
