Exploit: Ransomware

DESMI: Pump manufacturer and developer

Risk to Small Business: 2.617 = Severe

A ransomware attack has encrypted company IT, prohibiting remote workers from accessing company systems. Although the DESMI is confident in its ability to restore services, this outage constitutes a veritable shutdown as employees can neither utilize in-office tools nor communicate via virtual meetings.

Individual Risk: At this time, no personal information was compromised in the breach.

Customers Impacted: Unknown

How it Could Affect Your Customers’ Business: COVID-19 has made remote work a necessity at companies around the world. This workflow is contingent on employees having access to company systems. During this time, a ransomware attack can erode the limited productivity and sales opportunities that companies have now, which increases the impetus to protect your company’s digital environment.
